operations to earn money - but don't set off the alarm!"
an American game classic that came out in 1965.
Over 40 years
later it is still a favorite among children. Operation is the
game where children get to be the doctor. This game develops eye
hand coordination and, as a parent I believe this game especially
works to develop patience. Children have a tendency to work quickly
and want speedy results. To win at Operation children have to
work slowly and deliberately if they want to become a big time
of the game: Collect the most money by performing successful
"operations" on Cavity Sam.
play the game: Players take turns to pick Doctor cards which
tell players what part to "operate" on and the fee they
will receive if they are successful. Using the game tweezers the
player begins their "operation". If they are successful
in removing the assigned part without touching the metal edge
of the cavity - without making Sam's nose light up - they receive
their fee and their turn is over. The player that has the Specialist
card for that same "operation" gets a chance to "operate"
for a higher fee
if successful they then receive the fee.
