The children's game Operation is a perennial favourite, but is somewhat old hat in the modern age of keyhole surgery. New discoveries about the workings of the brain make possible a new variant, which would be both educational, and great fun. The game comes with a lifelike dummy, whose head is shaved, and pre-drilled with a great number of holes. The dummy contains a sophisticated computer, emulating the workings of the brain, sundry motors to move the limbs, a voicebox, and other apparatus.

Probes are inserted into the cranial holes, thus influencing the workings of the brain, producing a variety of bodily and mental effects, ranging from finger wiggling to profound delusions as to the nature of the world.

       Can I be the one who drills the holes?

       Blow. That's a middle 'C', or I can't say pseudotumor cerebri.

       Book reference for this one: "Dark Matter" by Garfield Reeves-Stevens. A mad killer performs brain surgery on his victims in a quest for the ultimate expression of understanding in their faces. (Not a good book; but "hi" if you happen to be stuck with it.)
