Operation is a dexterity game in which you must extract silly body parts from a hapless patient. In the course of the game you acquire cards which dictate that you must remove a certain piece from the body of the patient. To do this you use a set of tweezers that are attached by wire to the game board. If you are sloppy and touch the metal sides of the hole where the item is located, the patient's pain is indicated by a sudden buzzer and light-up nose. Successful extractions net cash, and the player with the most cash at the end of the game is the winner.

The chart indicating Operation requires 1-6 players, recommended player size for the best game time is 3, plays in 10 minutes, features Action, dexterity, children's game, and medical themes, and offers simulation Mechanics
