    Also, Exd3, Kxh3, d4, Na3#

    And the last move could also have been Kg3-h4

    Yeah...that's the try. Kg3-h4 is a possible last move. Can anyone else see why?

    Last moves could have been -1.Kg3-h4 g4xf3ep! -2.f2-f4 Qb8+. The possibility of one en passant [g4xf3] disproves another [e4xd3].
