Quote: "Quick, simple and easy, Yahtzee is an addictive game that will challenge you plenty, and encourage you to try just one more game."

History of Yahtzee - According to Hasbro, Yahtzee was invented in 1954 by a Canadian couple, who called it "The Yacht Game" because they played it on their yacht.

Later the couple asked toy and game entrepreneur Edwin S. Lowe if he would make up some sets to be given as gifts to their friends who enjoyed the game. Lowe perceived the possibility of marketing the game, and acquired the rights to the game from the couple in exchange for 1,000 gift sets.

According to Lowe, the game did not initially do well commercially, since the rules and appeal were not easily conveyed in an advertisement. Eventually, he had the idea of organizing Yahtzee parties at which people could play the game and thereby gain a firsthand appreciation of it. The idea was successful, and enthusiasts quickly popularized the game through word of mouth.

Various Yahtzee console games have been sold over the years including an early version on the TI-99 4A computer.

In 1996, the game was first released to PC and Mac users by Atari. The Ultimate Yahtzee CD-ROM game contained standard Yahtzee as well as other varieties.

Later, GameHouse also released an authorized special version of the game for Windows users. Other independently-produced versions, down-loadable and online ones, also exist.
