    For Xmas we have a big gathering and play games all day that's all combined to make one large competition. If your team wins a game, you win a point, end of day, highest scorer wins a prize.

    What I'd like to do is have it so that instead of highest scorer wins, instead have it that the person who's won the most has the biggest chance of winning the final game, but it's still possible that the lowest score person could some how steal the win.

    An example would be a guessing game where you have to say guess the weight of a box, closest guesser wins

    Each time you win throughout the day, you add another guess, so if you win 6 times, you have 6 guesses, but the person who's won only once, only had 1 guess, could still be the closer guess and wins.

    That's the idea, but I'd rather something still to be played. Not a board game but an activity.

    Ring toss, etc.

    Hoping you guys can help out with some ideas.

    If you don't have a dartboard handy, you could use a deck of cards and draw those rather than throw darts.
    The range of numbers is fewer than a dartboard so it could be close.
