“What is a Russian oligarch’s least favorite dice game?"/"Yacht seized.”

“Yachtzee” (yacht + Yahtzee) is a joke name for the dice game. Following the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, “yacht seized” became a similar joke.

“What is a Russian oligarch’s least favorite dice game? Yacht seized” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on March 4, 2022.


Wikipedia: Yahtzee
Yahtzee is a dice game made by Milton Bradley (a company that has since been acquired and assimilated by Hasbro). It was first marketed under the name of Yahtzee by game entrepreneur Edwin S. Lowe in 1956. The game is a development of earlier dice games such as Poker Dice, Yacht and Generala. It is also similar to Yatzy, which is popular in Scandinavia.
