My guess is that someone said, "But Icehouse is a game, so we should
generalize it to all possible games" and "Ice" somehow stuck instead of

Me? I'd actually prefer "Pyramid Games Design Competition" BUT the brand
is now officially the "Icehouse Game System," and so the need to
disambiguate wans while the brand-alignment need waxes.

I'll give the list a few more days to respond before committing to
"Icehouse," but I don't anticipate much (if any) objection.
