In 1948, Parker Brothers purchased a license to the British game of Cluedo and introduced it to the American market as Clue: The Sherlock Holmes Game. In the next year, the manufacturer dropped the subtitle of the game; it has been known to game players as simply Clue ever since. In the course of its fifty-year life, the game has undergone several graphic overhauls. In the game, players vie to name the particulars of a crime--location, weapon, and perpetrator. The popular game achieved its highest notoriety as a major feature movie in the 1980s. The Toy Manufacturers Association includes Clue on its list of classic toys.
