Qualitative (game of kind) outcomes of two-target games are analyzed in this paper, under both the zero-sum and nonzero-sum preference ordering of outcomes by the players. The outcome regions of each player are defined from a security standpoint. The secured draw and mutual-kill regions of a player depend explicitly on his preference ordering of outcomes and should be constructed separately for each player, especially in a nonzero-sum game. General guidelines are presented for identifying the secured outcome regions of players in a class of two-target games that satisfy an Isaacs-like condition, in terms of the qualitative solutions of the two underlying single-target pursuit-evasion games. A construction has been proposed for obtaining the qualitative solution of a large class of two-target games. Illustrative examples are included.
