was invented by a Canadian family who loves to play games. Whether they play before dinner, up north on weekends or while away on a holiday, they have gotten together weekly for countless years to slug it out, playing a wide variety of games for fun, enjoyment and most of all bragging rights!
Cathy and David, the husband and wife team who invented high-hand-ed both come from families of game players. Cathy is a movie goer, voracious reader, puzzle solver and has a keen card sense having played a wide variety of games since she was young. David loves golf, games of all types and played professional blackjack on a team in Las Vegas in the early 1980’s and has played in the World Series of Poker on many occasions.
In the summer of 2014 while away for a weekend and over several glasses of wine, they came up with the basic format of high-hand-ed. The game was changed, modified and improved over the next 8 months ending up with what currently is the present day version.
It is their intention that you get as much enjoyment out of the game as they have!
