Oct-14-06  syracrophy: The pun sounds as the name of a book or a story, but I really don't remember.

Any ideas?

Oct-14-06  ganstaman: Nightmare on Elm's Street, I believe.

I was close.

Oct-14-06  syracrophy: <ganstaman> Thanks for the link! What a "spooky" pun.

If this one was that scary, how scary will be the pun of the game of the day of Halloweeen?! 8-|

Oct-14-06  chessmoron: <> Shouldn't this puzzle pun or game be yesterday, Friday the 13th or even Halloween? If not, better be a good one on October 31st. =)
Oct-14-06  Tenderfoot: haha, Clever. Definitely wasted on the 14th which two great days for it this month.

  Honza Cervenka: Pretty game. For black it was not only Knightmare but a Rookmare as well. Constellation of 7 pieces on g-file after 32.Rg3 is quite picturesque.
Oct-16-06  kevin86: Hobson's choice for the knight: move and allow mate-or stay and BE the mate.

Is a nightmare coin called a Freddy Krugerrand?
