From this article on BoardGameNews, up until yesterday, Hasbro didn’t own the rights to Trivial Pursuit. Instead, over the past twenty years, Hasbro has been paying licensing fees to the original publisher Horn Abbot (owned by the two designers Chris Haney and Scott Abbott and two other lucky dogs). But, as of yesterday, Horn Abbot sold all rights to Hasbro for….wait for it…. eighty “holy mother of all that’s sane in this world” million dollars. Yes…that’s an ‘m’ before the ‘illion’.
