I know that the point of most games is to end up with one winner and many losers. This is how you know the game is over. Well, back in my day (beware of stories that begin that way!) we whiled away many a recess on the playground with two sets of hands and a long string, because the ultimate point of playing any game should be to have fun with friends. It's actually possibly to have all winners and no losers. I know. It's ridiculously quaint.
