I’ll be the first to pluck the low hanging fruit on this one: easy abbreviation for Monstereffen would be “M-effin’”

Monstertreffen is German for "Monster meeting," so I wonder if this will include meet and greets with our favorite monsters?

So after the "meet and growl" will you have to find the ausfahrt?
