It's another game which I am hoping to get the name of - like operation, it buzzed when you tipped off it - it was a wire with curves which you had to make your way around using a stick with a loop at the end - if you got to the end without buzzing, you win. Any ideas of the name? It was also a part of a game show on UK TV.

This game would scare me so much! haha. I was easily startled as a kid, I guess.

This game rose my blood pressure from that of a 7 year old to an 80 year old as soon as I tried to get out that STUPID funny bone! 20 years later I need to get this game and finally get that ONE piece....

Why??Why??Why?? did I have to touch the sides. If I had just held my breath a little longer it would still be my turn...Loved the game. Glad to see that it is back, but wished I still had my original.

Never had this game, but would play with it in 1st grade 20 years ago. Those were great times.

You can still get this...I bought it for my boyfriend's daughter, thinking she would love it, and she doesn't. That's so disappointing, lol.

Christmas 1977 or 78... I was excited when I opened up my present and saw an Operation box inside. My dad poked the batteries into it and we all sat around on the floor to play with it. The first time it buzzed it scared three years off of me. I screamed, started crying and told my parents to tell Santa to take it back.

I got Operation for Christmas when I was about 4 y/o. Good old Cavity Sam--I used to love to try to get the Butterflies out of his stomach!

My aunt and myself use to set for hours and play an early, early version. I could never figure out how someone in real life could have all those different items inside guess I was real young.

I always really wanted this game but instead got a different make on the same theme. The appeal was very limited to be honest.
