Don't buy the above... the skutters are Rimmer's arch enemies, and while they'll obey a direct order, any time his back is turned they'll make obscene gestures; he in his turn refers to them as "spanners". So I doubt he'd be able to convince them one to help him cheat against another of its own kind. They're also passionate about unity among robots: remember in the first episode, Lister mentions that the only reason he and Rimmer are cleaning gunk out of chicken soup machines is that the service robots have a better union than they do. Or am I taking all this a little too far...?

Firstly, it was draughts, not chess. Secondly, how could Rimmer cheat when he's a hologram?

The meteor could have knocked the pieces off the white squares so the skutter could have put them back on the white again.

Is it a slipup, or an Easter egg (Rimmer Cheating, because he's a loser)?

Rimmer may me a hologram, but he still has the same personality as when he was alive (Holograms in Red Dwarf are recreations of living people who had died), so it is very possible that he could have cheated. Although, he would have had to get a skutter to move the pieces, and they're not exactly fast.

Definitely NOT Rimmer cheating. He's a soft-light hologram. It's a production error.

Definitely Rimmer cheating. I mean, why else would the pieces move?
