High-Handed 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 concept 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. Perfect for the house, cottage, chalet and any occasion!
