Combination Conditions

Some games have multiple victory or loss conditions. For example, a round of Pokémon Trading Card Game can end in three ways:

  • When one player has Knocked Out enough of the other’s Pokémon to draw all his Prize Cards
  • When one player is unable to play a Pokémon from his Bench to replace his Active Pokémon
  • When one player has run out of cards in his Deck and is unable to draw at the beginning of his turn.

The first condition is a goal measured by victory points, while the other two are loss conditions.
