I agree that "centrificing" is awkward (although fun to say). It seems to me that the solution is to reduce the word "trebuchet" to "treb," and use that as the verb, as in "So is this the point where I treb it?" or "This game requires very accurate trebbing."
My only problem with "centrificing" is that it is too close to "sacrificing," which is not quite what you want with the mechanic. "Catapaulting" sounds good to me; at least one of the games refers to a catapault, but that shouldn't be too much of a conflict. "Treb," on the other hand, sounds to me more like "treble" than "trebuchet," perhaps because I have never used the latter. - Eric
