Is there any type of chess game when the king gets trap does not end game?

What I mean the king get eliminated but the game continues until last piece gets eliminated would end the game.

Does anybody play it that way?

Thank for looking into it.

    The rules of chess have stayed the way they are for centuries for good reasons. 

    There are alternative rules, the most interesting one probably being Fischer Random, which eliminates the advantage of opening book preparation. 

    But what you are proposing would probably be of little interest to chess enthusiasts: Only in beginners' games does one regularly find huge discrepancy in material. Chess tends to be balanced. The loss of a single pawn is often enough, between experienced players, to tip that balance and lead to victory for one side. 

    Imagine you are left with two rooks. (one on each side). How would that be resolved? The only way to lose is to foolishly put your rook in the path of your opponent's.
