Clue was originally designed by English musician Anthony E. Pratt between 1943 and 1945 as a tabletop version of the elaborate murder mystery parlour/role-playing games that were common at the time.
Pratt frequently witnessed these types of games in action during piano playing gigs at private homes and drew his inspiration from what he had seen.
After he patented the game in the year 1947, and the sold it to UK game manufacturer Waddington’s, who began selling it in the UK in 1949 under the name Cluedo.
The game was later on sold in the US getting its clue name but a lot of country’s like the UK and Australia kept the original name.
