Parker Brothers' "The Detective Game," made around the turn of the 20th century exeplifies a certain kind of strategy game. A simple cat-and-mouse type of race game, each player has a playing piece for both the detective and the burglar. The first detective to catch either burglar wins the game. The game's box graphics probably appealed to little boys.
