Seriously though, when you were little do you remember some of the games spookin you a little bit or just making you jump? Well, I remember a few. Here are a few I remember.


Perfectionarticle image
Yes, the game of Perfection. I played that game over and over and regardless if I knew the timer was running out or not I would still try. Buuuuuuutt, as soon as it was all over..... KABLAMM!! The timer would expire, the unfinished puzzle would go spraying into the air, and I would get spooked everytime.

Yet another terrifying board game. Yes, Operation wasn't even a nice cover up for a good game. Look at it from a different perspective. You are a surgeon, in an unsanitary environment, with dirty tweezers, trying to remove organs from a man that has not been given anesthesia yet (look at that face). You may think twice about having surgery any time soon, seeing as how those same people that played that game as kids are now performing that surgery. But I digress, There I am playing Operation in a dimly lit room ready to remove the Writer's Cramp from his arm and everything has slowed down. quiet..quiet.. BUUUUUUUUUUUZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz. Ahhhhhhh! Now I hafta have surgery to remove the tweezers from my hand.
