Seems to me that the logical step would be along the lines of a
glossary-style games catalog, with the pyramid games cross-referenced to
the Icehouse Wiki (as the fullest data source on that big data chunk)
and the other games cross-referenced to their LL pages.  That way, you
get as close as possible to a meeting between single-sourcing and ease
of reference, while keeping the scope of each domain distinct.  The
Rabbit Wiki is concerned with being a Rabbit, the Icehouse Wiki is
concerned with details on pyramid games, and LL naturally wants product
pages on all the LL games.

I disagree, but again, that's another discussion.
