A proof that under certain conditions the upper and lower values of approximating games converge actually to the same function. A class of survival games in an arbitrary [n]-dimensional region R and with an arbitrary payoff function [f(x)] on the boundary is considered. It is assumed that neither player can force the state of the game to proceed in any direction. (See also RM-1480.) 18 pp.
