In the game Cacao, one of the sources of points is a water track; you can see it round the edge of the player board in this photo. Points start at -10 and end at +16.

Every player has one, so it could just as easily be ten points higher, starting at zero and ending at 26. But giving it that negative point value makes players work really hard to get it at least up to the zero mark.

No Thanks or No Merci generally has players with negative scores at the end of the game. Makes sense but it does seem off putting.
