GiftTRAP was voted "Best Party Game of the Year 2008" by Games Magazine, proving that while buying real gifts can be traumatic; giving virtual gifts to find out how people really feel is heaps of fun. Be prepared for some surprises!

It's the hilarious social conversation starter that will get you and your friends talking about things that matter.

Despite there being hundreds of party games, it's rare to find one that adults and children both LOVE playing.

Unlike other party games you don't need skills in drawing, acting or trivia so it works well when you have a crowd of mixed ages/skills.

For 3 - 10 players.

For ages 8 and up.

    great for a party with friends!

    This game is a blast with a group of friends whom you know very well...or hardly at all. We had a dinner party and that was exactly the case. The reactions were hilarious and even surprising given there were 6 couples. I look forward to finishing up my kitchen remodel so I can host the next GiftTrap game night at my house. Packaging is beautiful and makes a great gift. Bravo to the designers!

    A reviewer

    GiftTRAP is a party game about giving each other gifts. The better you are at giving people the things they really want, the better you do at the game. How do you like that for a party game premise? giving each other presents. Well, we loved it! What fun to think about what other people might want for a present! What a fun thing to think about for a change! What a fun way to play with other people - giving presents to the very people you're trying to beat, winning because you're good at guessing what other people might want! OK, so they're not, like, real presents. They're only photos. But in the world of GiftTRAP, they're real enough. So real enough that you actually get excited when people give you the gifts you really want. Really excited. Even though they get more points than you do. And you're just as excited when you give people the gifts they most really wanted. Because they get excited. And, just maybe because you get more points than they do. GiftTRAP is masterfully packaged. The board, for example, is folded into a U-shape that fits everso well into the GiftTRAP box (well, cube, actually). Since each player has to use a lot of different pieces (2 scoring markers, 9 gift tokens, and 4 choice tokens), all of the player's chosen color the pieces come in their own individual, appropriately colored organza drawstring bags. Then there are the many decks of cards - 640 of them. Just so you never run out of something new to give each other. But it's the game itself that deserves the most attention, and praise. Praise, because it's probably the first and only party game in which empathy is a strategically valuable commodity, empathy and intuition, sensitivity and appreciation, even. GiftTRAP is a new kind of party game. A kinder kind. A Major FUN kind.

    The Gift Trap

    This game is terrible. The directions are very confusing and the game itself is boring. It might be alright for "kids", but it's not a very exciting game for adults.

    GiftTrap: The Hilrious Gift Exchange Challenge

    This game wasn't "our cup of tea". It did not hold the group's attention for very long.

    Not for me!

    We played this game a couple of times and found the directions a little confusing and it was a pretty boring game. I donated it to the local thrift store. It sounded fun, but we found it lacking!

    This is a great family game

    A game that my wife, I and the kids can all enjoy. The children have a lot of fun playing it and it helps teach empathy as well as promoting good values.
