GiftTRAP is the hilarious new game that's taking the gaming world by storm, winning Games Magazines Best Party Game of the Year 2007/2008 and 5 other awards since launching in last October. It's also now available as a free Web 2.0 online game
Playing starts conversations with people who think they know each other well or want to know each other better.
The goal is to really get to know your friends and family by choosing the right gifts, but most of all it's just fun to play and gets you talking about things that matter.
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.
A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing in a virtual gift-giving game.
You are sure to learn something as you give from the 640 gift ideas from the basic to the bizarre.
Despite there being 100's of party games, it's rare to find one that adults and children both enjoy playing. It's fun because everyone gets to say what he or she thinks about the gifts before they know what they have been given.
