Pinburgh 2011: The First 10 Groups

At Pinburgh 2011, everyone will play 3-game matches against others for two solid days before determining tournament finalists in A, B, and C Division.  We decided to ‘group’ the games together: 1 quick game (‘Speed’), 1 longer-playing game (‘Stamina’), and 1 in between (‘Skill’).  Today, we’re revealing these 10 groups of 3:

  1. Flash Gordon, Family Guy, Funhouse
  2. Mars Trek, Revenge From Mars, Mars God of War
  3. Scuba, Atlantis, Fathom
  4. Jackbot, Pinbot, Taxi
  5. Buck Rogers, Time Fantasy, Doctor Who
  6. Cleopatra, Black Pyramid, Stargate
  7. Stellar Wars, Starship Troopers, Cosmic Gunfight
  8. Grand Prix (EM), NASCAR, Indianapolis 500
  9. Paragon, Last Action Hero, Terminator 3
  10. 4 Million BC, Jurassic Park, Lost World (Bally)

We’re looking to name each group.  What names would you give?  Leave a comment.  Registration for Pinburgh 2011 is still available, and the players list is continuing to grow.  Hope to see you.
