Operation

Careful…….. careful……. carfBZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!!

Operation had been going for years, but my first experience of it was in the late 70s to early 80s. It was one of the first electronic board games I had played and probably the one that got me hooked on them.

Inside the box there was a picture of a man lying down. The poor man had a huge red nose and gaps around his body exposing bones. He didn’t look well at all. His eyes were open, so he wasn’t even anesthetised!

Each of his bones were clearly labeled, and there were metal prongs attached to the side of the board. Unluckily, each of his exposed bones were lined with metal, as though his was some kind of cyborg.

The idea was that you had to take a card and perform whichever operation your card said, using the metal prongs to remove the bones without touching the mans metal lined skin.

If you got the bone out, you won some money. If you accidentally touched the metal with the prongs, the mans nose would light up bright red and he would make a violent BUZZ noise, startling everyone.
