Dec-17-13  sleepyirv: Santa displayed some nerves of steel in this game.
Dec-18-13  mrbiggs: I don't think this game is real.

  OBIT: It's real. Apparently, the journalist used the game Franz vs Mayet, 1858 for a little fun.
Dec-18-13  Cheapo by the Dozen: It couldn't be a game by Santa Claus if it didn't involve a lot of gifts of material ...
Dec-19-13  Kyouko Sakura: I don't think so either.
Dec-21-13  shoshonte: Proof that santa exists...
Dec-23-13  master of defence: LOL with the annotations of this game! NN, at least don't lose to a single legend again! ;-)

  Mrcomputer55: Nice game, the children will love it,
Dec-24-13  Tigranny: Very funny game that children will love, but no real proof that Santa exists.
Dec-24-13  MarkFinan: The combined age of these two must be a millennium or three.. And only NN could lose to old S.Claus! I have a hard time believing this game took place. Did anyone check "Clazza's" beard or boots for one of those electronic gadgets he proudly gives away this time of year?? Did someone not realise that NN should only be entering the snowdrops v old geezers tournament only?? I'm suspicious!!!!!!!!!! 😆

  Domdaniel: Stop 'acting suspicious', Mark. It's an enjoyable game. And we hope the kids believe it...
Dec-22-15  catlover: Good thing for NN that he didn't beat Santa. He would have gotten lumps of coal in his stockings.
Dec-19-17  posoo: TOGRANY, r u INSANE?
