The popular dice game “Yahtzee” was originally called “Yacht Game” by the Canadian couple who invented the game to play with friends aboard their yacht.
The couple sold the game in 1956 to the man who had popularized Bingo. Although at first he had difficulty selling the game, it quickly gained popularity when the inventive businessman started throwing Yahtzee parties.
