Columbo Detective Game

board game

The television detective series "Columbo" ran for eight seasons, from 1971 through 1980, and then again intermittently from 1989 to 2003. Winning many awards during its run, it also was voted one of the best all-time crime fiction series. Featuring the unassuming Peter Falk in the title role, "Columbo" is still rell-remembered among television reviewers and amateur fans alike. In 1973, during the height of the first run series, Milton Bradley licensed a board game. Playing something like the Parker Brothers favorite game Clue, the Columbo Detective Game was actually based on Milton Bradley's former game Why?--a Clue knockoff.
