I can vouch for the authenticity of Mr. Shields' creation of DeadSquare, as I helped him play test it on the Portland streets in the mid 90's. I also coined the term 'DeadSquare', and helped codify the standard rules of play for this website.

Mr. Shields was the one to submit his concept for computer development. The basic principle of exploding squares is surely not unique when developing variants, any previous claims are without merit.
