comment Interesting non-zero-sum games
This isn't what I'm referring to. Regardless of what the total scores are, in Settlers there's a single winner, or you might look at it as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places; either way, the outcome of the game is fixed regardless of what the actual scores are. I'm looking for a game in which the possible outcomes of the game might depend on something in-game; such as a shared win being worth two wins, instead of half a win each, or a situation in which everyone loses and actually loses points rather than getting 0. As I said, this question may only make sense in the context of a given metagame.

comment Good sites for trading unwanted board/card games and expansions?
@LittleBobbyTables It looks like many people here are those folks who can't stand to look at BoardGameGeek. I used to use it a lot more often, but stopped hanging out there regularly after they did a redesign that made it even more cluttered (and added more ads), as well as a few other issues. Glad to see it's not just me.

Where in that thread does it say the tournament score is based on your score within the game, and not just your placement relative to the other players?

comment Interesting non-zero-sum games
Are there actually Carcassonne or Scrabble tournaments in which your place in the tournament depends on your score within a game, and not just your score relative to the other players? If there are, that would count; you would be able to make a decision in which you lost the individual game, but wound up with a higher score and thus did better in the tournament. If so, do you have any references for such tournaments?
