Victor Hugo Watson, born September 26 1928, died February 25 2015

Victor Hugo Watson became chairman of the Leeds-based games maker John Waddington in 1977, played a major role in making the board game Monopoly a worldwide hit and managed to save the company – twice – from the hostile clutches of Robert Maxwell but eventually taken over by Hasbro.
