trivia: The same image appeared online attributed to Inalchuq, Genghis Khan, and Attila the Hun, with no way to tell which person it actually was. When several players guessed Genghis and Attila, Scott decided to add a special case to the game's rules for situations like this, disallowing those other guesses and letting players guess again.
