Reading this question, 99% of the gamers probably can figure out what the game is 2 sentences in.
I'm perfectly aware that we don't allow game identification because it would be too opinion based to guess what might be in someone's head just by a vague description (as far as I understand the rules).
So what should I do:
- Tell him "sorry, but no" and direct him to an outside source (what Jutschge did)
- Explain to him how he's wrong but still provide an answer (or at least a comment with the name but comments don't bring rep, hence my choice) (What I did)
- Ignore altogether and vote close the question (strongly against my believes as a visitor and contributor to this community)
While we are at it, the two links referenced in the "Close question -> off topic because... -> Questions asking for help identifying a game... Do not work:
"this blog post might help" (I am aware of the closure of the blogs)
"We allow an exception for identifying games based on an actual piece of the game"
