You're the doctor when you play Operation. Take turns removing various "ailments" from the patient's body with tweezers, but watch out! Don't set off the buzzer! This classic game is great fun for everyone. For 1 or more players, ages 6 and up. From Milton Bradley. Made in USA.
Surely countless medical careers have been launched because of this humorous game. The Operation game board features Sam the patient, lying atop a red plastic "operating table" with 12 body cavities exposed. Players perform highly skilled procedures with a pair of tweezers such as removing a broken heart or butterflies in the stomach. This kind of surgery requires a steady hand! Doctors must remove the offending body part without touching the metal lining of the cavity. Touch the metal edge, and you'll set off the buzzer and make Sam's nose light up. Then the designated Specialist steps in--for double the fee! If you're playing solo, try performing all 12 operations without getting zapped. Two AA batteries are required. Operation is for one or more players. --Elizabeth WardSee all Product description

There are 12 body parts to remove and one (ankle bone to the knee bone) to connect. Yes, Sam's nose still buzzes and goes red if you touch the metal with your "operating" tool! 2AA batteries (required) are NOT provided.
The body parts come all attached on one piece of plastic so you will need to remove these before play can commence. I would also recommend a ziplock bag to keep the money and doctor/specialist cards in as there is no compartment in the game. The playing board measures approximately 8 3/4" x 15".
We purchased this at full price. We were not required to write a review but chose to do so. Thanks, Liz
Then I discovered that the game had been changed and made much much easier. Thus started my hunt for the original operation, which THIS is (although there is an added piece in the brain that was apparently added in the late 2000s. THIS version is what I remember from my childhood: difficult bone removal with an almost guaranteed buzzer, parts that slide so far out of reach that you can barely see them, and an actual challenge.
I was glad there was a classic version available, but I didn't remember the ice cream cone in the head. I looked it up and saw that the ice cream came along in 2004; that's pretty late to be "classic." I wish it was exactly like the one I had as a kid. I wonder why companies keep making "classic" and "retro" editions of games and toys but including changes that make the game or toy not the way it was. It's still better than playing on one of the new boards, but the fake parts in the classic/retro games are sad reminders that we may never again play the same games we played as kids.
Dear Milton Bradley,
Please stop with the ridiculous Star Wars and Frozen and every-Disney-movie versions of all of our old games. We want the REAL versions of the games.
Broken box, missing parts, dirty game, even dirty pieces of who knows what inside!!
It was a “Sabra Claus” gift! How embarrassing! Argggghhhhg SO UPSET!!
