  offramp: A correspondent of Edward Winter at has drawn attention to a similar game:

It looks like someone has deliberately copied an old game.

The thing is that they probably thought they would NEVER be found out!

  blazerdoodle: Two unknown guys passed into history with a made up game tagged on to them? lol.

Now, perhaps they did play the game out, and in the tourney and he thought he had a shot at the end adding those extra moves. Of course, if so, he found out otherwise.

The things some do to desperately become immortal.
