A wealthy Canadian couple invented the "Yacht Game" as a fun way to pass time on their yacht. he couple's friends enjoyed the game so much that they decided to have extra copies made as gifts. In 1956, they brought the game to Edwin S. Lowe, who was making bingo games at the time, and asked him to manufacture more for them.
Lowe
loved the game and convinced them to sell him the rights.
Yahtzee became a Milton Bradley game when they acquired the Lowe Company in 1973.
