Which game was invented on a yacht by a Canadian couple?
Yahtzee was invented by a Canadian couple, who originally called it The Yacht Game because they played it on their yacht with their friends. The couple asked game entrepreneur Edwin S. Lowe if he would make up some sets to be given as gifts to their friends. Lowe acquired the rights to the game from the couple in exchange for 1,000 gift sets. In 1973, the Milton Bradley Company purchased Lowe's company and assumed the rights to produce and sell Yahtzee. According to current owner Hasbro, 50 million Yahtzee games are sold each year.
