Playable Operation Cake: Surgical Sweets
Operation was one of my favorite board games growing up – because it really wasn’t a board game at all, but an opportunity to play around with electricity and pretend to be a surgeon. So what could be better than combining this fun game than an edible version made from cake?

Many fans fondly remember LEGO set #1682, the Space Shuttle Launch. It was released 27 years ago, and is a classic.
