James Lipton of Inside the Actors Studio has a book titled "An Exaltation of Larks". Basically it's a compilation of how you would refer to a group of an item, like pride of lions, den of theives, nest of vipers.... He gives a history with sources of many of them (Comedy of Errors-Shakespeare) & made up a bunch of them of how he thinks it should be, like Rash of Dermatologists, Quicksand of Credit Cards, Dash of Commuters & Deficit of Republicans. He has some game entries like, Ponder of Checker Players, Stud of Poker Players & a Contract of Bridgehands. How about some more. I'm only doing one game for now, feel free to add your own. (Mr. Finchley, if you don't contribute, I will be highly insulted).
