- The Adventure of the Abbey Grange (Literature)
"The game is afoot."
"The game is afoot" is a phrase uttered by Sherlock Holmes, the famous fictional British detective, in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1904 short story "The Adventure of the Abbey Grange." Veronica spit-shines and raises her detective antennae when she and Meg enter the party at Caz's house. They're on the lookout for Meg's secret admirer, and Veronica spouts the early 20th-century equivalent of "Game On."
