ANSWER - Tuesday Trivia: Games

What was the original name of the popular dice game Yahtzee?

The Yacht Game. It was invented by a Canadian couple who played it with guests aboard their yacht. In 1956 they asked toy salesman Edwin S. Lowe, who had developed Bingo, to manufacture copies to give as gifts for their friends. Lowe convinced them to sell him the rights to the game. The price - one thousand copies of the game.

Congratulations to Kaye for being the first to get the correct answer!
