This is my first attempt, so give me a break.

Solve it OR point out the flaw ...

Position After Black's 6th Move:

4.Qe2 could be replaced by 4.Qg4 or 4.Qh5 with the same following moves

Wouldn't your solution be 'unique' if the end position was after white's sixth move instead of black's?

OK ... This is harder than I thought.

First attempt was a fail (too many solutions)

I'll try again. Thanks for your time.

[pgn]1.e3 b6 2.Qf3 b5 3.Qb7 Bxb7 {This looked like a sound start.} 4.Bxb5 Bxg2 5.Bc6 Bxh1 {I originally ended it here with Bxh1, but I think there are still too many ways to get on this diagonal for white.} 6.Bxa8 Bxa8 [/pgn]

It's hard to get away with deliberately wasting a tempo with something like ...b6. There has to be a strong motivation for doing so, or else cooks start to creep in:
