Fantastic! I looked for "Scar-Nee" and there it was. I submitted a correction to change the info. I think that Scar-nee is an earlier version of Teeko. I don't have the other game though...
Most likely, Scar-Nee is an earlier version of Scarney, before all the variations were added. John Scarne started working on Teeko in the 1930's.
