VPchat offers its members Yahtzee as well as tournaments, game ladders, leagues, and chat rooms.
Yahtzee combines the whimsy of chance and sheer luck to create a fun way to pass the time with visiting relatives. People who do not gamble all over North America have dug through the backs of cabinets, closets, and chests of drawers in the den or at the lake house to unearth everyone’s favorite dice game.
VPchat’s intrepid teams of Internet researchers have uncovered the tawny beginnings of Yahtzee. Yahtzee was invented by a wealthy Canadian couple to play aboard the yacht. Their friends loved the game so much, they asked for copies.
In 1956, the couple approached Mr. Edwin S. Lowe, who made a fortune selling Bingo games in the 1920’s. They asked him to make up some samples of the game as gifts. He did. He also acquired the rights to the game for a song and eventually sold it to Milton-Bradley.
Even if you don’t own a yacht, you can certainly come to VPchat, chat with friends, and roll the dice.
