Yachtzee (yacht + Yahtzee)

The dice game of Yahtzee has nothing to do with yachts, but there are jokes.

“What do you have when you get five yachts? Yachtzee!” was posted on Twitter by Steve Landey on April 13, 2010. “I saw 5 boats down at the marina that were exactly the same. Yachtzee!” was posted on Twitter by Whimsical Wordsmith on August 21, 2012. “I have 5 of the same boat ..... Yachtzee?” was posted on Twitter by Mr. Isno’t on January 17, 2013. “What do you say when you have five yachts? Yachtzee” was posted on Twitter by Danny Goforth on March 31, 2016. “@ExcuseThePun What do you call five of the same boats together? Yachtzee!” was posted on Twitter by Brian Mazzarella on August 1, 2017.

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.

The objective of the game is to score points by rolling five dice to make certain combinations. (...) A Yahtzee is five-of-a-kind and scores 50 points, the highest of any category. The winner is the player who scores the most points.

If I ever owned a large boat I would name it “Yachtzee” which probably explains why I’ll never own a large boat.
