The old clownish game of Operation is passé when you consider the possibilities of Alien Autopsy. This gruesome, 21st-century take on board-game surgery offers two to four players the chance to dissect an alien’s body with a sensitive tool. If a player touches the outside of the alien body, watch out! Its eyes glow an eerie green and it lets out a terrible scream. Alien Autopsy comes with 10 removable body parts, a pair of dice, four playing pieces and 10 autopsy cards. Maybe you won’t discover the secrets of the universe, but you’ll definitely have $20 worth of fun. Find Alien Autopsy anywhere games are sold.
