The frustration and mild annoyance is usually because you're so dang
good at these games, not because of any particular "make someone else
win" strategy.

Otherwise, I think that idea of  "points captured minus points still
in your territory" is a really good solution - it makes for obvious
target space for where to put my piece next move.
