This is part two of some photos from my Grandparent’s house. I don’t know how much Yahtzee changed it’s box over the years, but this particular one is dated 1956 and is from the E. S. Lowe company. The price looks like it was $1.99, marked down to $1.17. That Wiki site says

Between 1956 and 1961, the game’s advertising slogan was changed from “The Game That Makes You Think While Having Fun” to “The Fun Game That Makes Thinking Fun!”

And on the action site, only the earliest ones appear to have this “alligator skin” cup.

  1. Very cool! We actually have a more recent version of the game as well as a little digital, battery operated version you can play on your own. I like the “alligator skin” cup, I actually had something like that material as a wallet back in the 70s. The cup we have now looks like a blue plastic but it does have some design / texture.
