I don't understand this.  The end conditions for good and evil should
not cause any problem in a two-player game.  Good and evil simply
become irrelevant.  As for the last-man-standing end condition for
multiple players, it's probably better to award a victory on the first
kill.  Taking out an opponent generally requires making a sacrifice
that give the advantage to whoever sits back and lets one opponent
kill the others.
