The Snakescast: Runaway Leader!

Play

When one player gets out in front and can't lose

In some games, one player can get an early lead that just gets bigger and bigger. In games like that, as soon as one player starts winning, the game is effectively over. For some players, this is all part of the fun, but for others, this is an absolute deal-breaker and a reason never to play that game again. How big a problem is a runaway leader, and how can a game deal with it?
