Looking for a new word… January 26, 2007

Posted by webofwebhead in CCG, CMG, Game Theory.

I’m looking for a new word…a word that will cover both CCG’s and CMG’s…a name for the grouping of things you use in those games.  In CCG’s, by default it’s “deck” of course (although some games use more specific terms), in CMG’s it’s team, squad, warband, what have you.  But what I’m looking for is a collective word that would encompass both genres.  My current favorite is “clutch”…but I’d love to hear ideas that others can come up with… – B

My favorite so far is “cluster”, as in the cats collective. Other favorites include “troop” (apes), “gang” (buffalo), “corps” (giraffes), “band” (gorilla), “pod” (hippopotamus, whales), “party” (jays), and “parcel” (penguins).

I think collection or stuff sounds better than cluster or clutch.
