    A more exhaustive approach:

    1. g4 (1. f3 [1. f4 e6 (1. ..e5 2. g4 Qh4# )] e6 (1. ..e5 2. g4 Qh4# ) 2. g4 Qh4# ) e5 (1. ..e6 2. f4 [2. f3 Qh4# ] Qh4# ) 2. f3 Qh4#

    I think I have got all the variations there.

    EDIT: Sh!t, damn smilies

    In Thread 45582 we identified 8 distinct sequences leading to checkmate on black's second move. Fool's mate, as it is called, when turned around so that white wins on move 3 is possible at the end of 304 distict sequences. In addition there are an additional 300+ (estimated) sequences leading to checkmate before the fourth move (most on black's third move).
