YachtWorld.com announced that its "Believe it or Knot" nautical mobile game is under way in advance of the Seattle Boats Afloat Show.

The game has a true-or-false format in which a player must answer all six questions correctly to be eligible to win an iPod Touch. The questions are a mix of nautical history, Seattle highlights and a question about YachtWorld.com.

"We wanted a game that could be played at the Seattle Boats Afloat show as well as at home," said John Stewart, YachtWorld.com brand manager, in a statement. "We designed it to be played on a mobile device, iPhone, Droid and iPad, for example, as well as a laptop or desktop computer."

For those attending the show, the URL to the game will be featured on bags they can pick up throughout the event. Entries will be accepted until midnight Sept. 30. The winner will be chosen Oct. 6.

The Seattle Boats Afloat Show takes place Sept. 15-19 at Chandlers Cove in South Lake Union.

YachtWorld.com and Soundings Trade Only are divisions of Dominion Enterprises.
