(This is my 200th post so that means I have over 200 items in my collection!)

It is mine! I made an unbelieve find from - I stumbled upon The Nightmare Before Christmas version on the boardgame Clue (or Cluedo) on their site and it was only about 30€ with free shipping! Of course I ordered it immediately and now it has arrived. I have seen this game on eBay but the prices have been quite high with shipping costs so I have been trying to find this elsewhere for lower price.

The game contents: custom game board, 6 suspect movers, 6 personality cards, 21 rumor cards, 21 intrigue cards, custom Clue sheet, envelope, 6 items, 2 dice and rules.

This version of the game was made in 2016 by USAopoly and licensed by Hasbro. There is also a Hot Topic Exclusive version available.

TNBC Operation

The Nightmare Before Christmas Operation -boardgame. This is made by USAopoly in 2011. The game has "an operating table" with Oogie Boogie on it and holes around for picking plastic items out with tweezers without touching the metal sides. Oogie speaks if you fail, the lines are:

"Come on Bone Daddy!"
"I might just die laughing, buahhahaahaa"
"Now look what you have done, my bugs, my bugs, my bugs!"
"Oh I'm really scared!"
"Well, well, well what have we here"

with green lights flashing in his mouth and eyes as he talks. The game also includes play money, doctor and specialist cards 24 altogether and 12 plastic funatomy parts.

I got this as a xmas present in 2011 and I did play it once, but the game offers no challenge to adults as it is really easy to get the items out.
