I think your problem was solved, and that the list of lists is the better 
approach indeed. But I'd like to add an answer to a direct question you

I think you would like to do something like: 

#!/usr/bin/env python
# use of __get_attribute__() function
class players(object):
	player1 = [2,4,8]
	player2 = [3,9,27]
	player3 = [4,16,64]

count = 2
pl = players()
actual_player_string = "player%s" % count

if pl.__getattribute__(actual_player_string)[2]==9:
	print 'It worked.'

I don't know how to do that if player{1,2,3} are not in a class, or if the 
class is not instanciated. But somebody else can possibly show a way. 

Anyway, as I said, I think you don't need it right now.
