Some of the comments below are funny but also a bit, umm, salty...

Yeah, well, it's a travesty what they've done with it.

I actually liked the new 'Risk' remake, but what they are planning with 'Clue'?? CRIMINAL! 90% of the fun in the game was the 1920s-style art deco-i-ness of it.

Those comments, though, are...well...

Well, to me at least, that cylinder they couldn't identify certainly looks like a pill bottle to me.

Yes, this latest rendition ought have the "weapons" go UP to '11'! Where's the "Death by MySpace Harassment"? Or even "Killed by Classmates on Murdering Rampage"? How about "Going Postal" as an old standby? Perhaps, even "Unsolved Child Starlet Wannabe Homicide"? Even some "Spring Break in Aruba Disappearance"?
surprise

You missed the anthrax-laced envelope, the Mothership Cocktail, and (Flame-Bait: on) the plane into the side of the building. (Flame-Bait: off)

It would be more fun if they had items like a rubber duck, and TV remote in there. Ms. Scarlett was offed with a rubber duck in the pool room, or whatever.

I like the Crate Full of Trans Fats myself. For the killer in a hurry, you can always beat the victim with the crate!

And a board game could be a weapon and added as a piece to the game, too ... remember the person that was arrested for assaulting someone with a game?
