Some of you may have been around long enough to remember Selchow and Righter, at one time one of our longer lived game companies. Located in Bay Shore, New York, the company dated back to 1867 when it was called Chaffee and Selchow, the company went on to publish notable games like Scrabble (1954), Trivial Pursuit (1982) and Parcheesi (1867). The company was purchased by Coleco in 1986 which was in turn acquired out of bankruptcy by Hasbro in 1989.
