Board Game: Operation

The kids’ school had a cake sale yesterday to raise money for their Harvest event and selected charity and during the sale, Soren won a new board game Operation.

They were so excited to play it but after some time realised it was not as easy as it seems.  One thing I’ll say is the quality is so poor – compared to the game we had in the 80’s.  The quality of the pieces, plastic and game iteself was just so different. If I can get my hands on a vintage Operation game, I’d love to show the kids.  I felt the same with Hungry Hungry Hippos game a few years back.
All in all the fun lasted about 10 minutes max with some fights about who set off the buzzer or not. Not sure when we’ll play it again… don’t think it was the best game from their collection.  Pie Face is the game they are hoping Santa brings them.

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
