Here a list from my little collection (old and new) that does not require the obligatory and anti-thematic Victory Points (VP) to win the game.

Games where the VPs are replaced with Glory, Status, Prestige, Fame, etc or the most amount of money are not included either.

The listed games have a determined objective to win.

Feel free to add.

[EDIT] When compiling this list I noticed some games are (semi) co-ops. Think those kind of games will fill this list quite easily.

And after the games I own, some games I played recently with my playing group.[/EDIT]

Objective is to buy all the required Support tokens and get the number of escaped slaves into Canada.
Losing is when the number of "lost" slaves exceeds its limit.

Steal the loot or failed to do so.
At the end of the game the gang has to be off the board again with the loot. Otherwise their nemesis, Inspector Zenigata, wins.

Defeat the forces of evil, or spur them to victory if you are the traitorous knight!

One might consider the swords "victory points", but the other end game conditions aren't.

How about "loss points"?

In GoF, players accumulate points that determine the endgame, but you want to end up with as few as possible!

To win, save 7 victims (and do not lose more than 3) before the house collapses. The fact that victims may perish makes them different from mere "collectables".

Be the first to get every item on your shopping list. The game Reglamentacja: Gra na Kartki by the same author has a similar goal, but very different mechanics.
