We introduce a three-player nonlocal game, with a finite number of classical questions and answers, such that the optimal success probability of $1$ in the game can only be achieved in the limit of strategies using arbitrarily high-dimensional entangled states. Precisely, there exists a constant $0 <c\leq 1$ such that to succeed with probability $1-\varepsilon $ in the game it is necessary to use an entangled state of at least $\Omega(\varepsilon ^{-c})$ qubits, and it is sufficient to use a state of at most $O(\varepsilon ^{-1})$ qubits.

The game is based on the coherent state exchange game of Leung et al.\ (CJTCS 2013). In our game, the task of the quantum verifier is delegated to a third player by a classical referee. Our results complement those of Slofstra (arXiv:1703.08618) and Dykema et al.\ (arXiv:1709.05032), who obtained two-player games with similar (though quantitatively weaker) properties based on the representation theory of finitely presented groups and $C^*$-algebras respectively.
