The board game "Operation" is based on a very simple circuit, so you can build your own and customize it really easily!

Step 1: Intro and Materials

I first made this game when I was around 11 or 12, when I was on some rant about how the original Operation dude didn't wear any underpants. I told my mom she shouldn't let my younger brother play the game because it was inappropriate (I didn't actually believe this, though, I just liked arguing about things back then). So...I made my own (with boxers drawn on) and called it "Disease Remover". it's a very simple game to make, and it would make a really funny gift or practice for people who want to learn more about electronics.


Wire and wire strippers
Shoebox Lid
Metal Tweezers
Small Buzzer
2 AA Batteries and a holder
Drinking Straws
A small bit of spare cardboard
Thank you!! Been looking for this info everywhere on the web!!. My 2nd grader wants to create one for her Science Project!. Thanks again!
Could the electronics behind this work for a life-size operations game? I'm thinking of making one and donating it to my kids' school carnival. Thank you!!
you should make a video of this.<br />
Has anyone produced a version of this game that gives you an electric-shock? Blend with one of the Tazer Instructables and you're there... L (I like it)
Oh, they have (I should've checked first)<br/><br/><strong>Make Operation boardgame into shocking Paris Hilton Operation</strong><br/><br/>L<br/><br/>
oooooo, i like that.
You could make money off that idea. And then lose it all when you get sued, most likely. Still a great idea. I commend you XD
I made something like this in 5th gr. great project for kids thats love to tinker w/electronics! Good Job!
I love the story of why you did this!
