There and multiple versions of Clue, but in the Classic version there are six weapons: candlestick, knife, lead pipe, revolver, rope and wrench. In a newer version of Clue the lead pipe and wrench have been replaced by poision, a trophy, a bat, an ax, and a dumbell, increasing the total of weapons to nine.

In addition to updating the weapons in Clue, toy maker Hasbro, Inc. also updated the game to include more modern, youthful characters and new rooms, including a guest house and a spa. The new characters have special abilities that help players discover clues faster. There are also cards that add clues and eliminate other players in this updated version of the game.
