No, I would not do it.

My main argument is that Klinzha is a real game that can be played, as
opposed to the {vIghro'}, which is fictive.

Depending on context of course, I think one might make a difference by
saying {tera' tlhInja}, like Okrand usually tells us to do with animal
names and fruit and so.
