comment Do any precolumbian board games survive?
@murgatroid99, apparently "precolumbian" is the magic word here. I tried searching with other terms, like "new world" and "americas", but got too much noise. Somehow "precolumbian" didn't occur to me till writing the question.

comment Does a game exist where some win, some lose, and some don't?
So are you saying that such games do or do not exist? If you're not saying one way or another, I don't think you're answering the question.

I'm asking the question as part of the process of designing a new title, trying to find out if this end-game behavior is already in use or not. What I'm not looking for is a recommendation of a game to try out.

@ire_and_curses, I don't need examples to prove the existence of the class, but a single example would suffice to prove it. I could reword it as a game identification question "What's the name of that game where X" instead of "Are there any games where X" and it would be functionally identical.

@ire_and_curses, but in order to show that the class has at least one member, you'd have to give an example. As an analogy, "Are there any primes greater than 10?" can be answered with a single example, yet it isn't asking for a recommendation.

@ire_and_curses, I'm asking whether that class of games has any members; I'm not asking for a recommendation in any way.

@tsuma534, the referee situation is what the second diagram in the question covers.

@tsuma534, I'm not asking how winning and losing ought to be defined (a question for philosophy), I'm asking if this specific definition is in use by any games.
