Universe Point

noun
This means that the next next point wins, as if whoever wins the next point wins it all, the universe. This is a metaphor as the universe is taking on the meaning of everything. This builds the meaning of the point being worth everything, which is another way to say the common phrase, “next point wins.”
 
“Give it your all! It’s universe point!”
Etymology : Universe- from Old French meaning the whole world, cosmos. Point is from Latin pungere. It was first recorded as a method of scoring in 1746. (Etymonline)
