AWARDS - GIFTTRAP AWARDED SPIEL DES YAHRE KRITIKERPREIS - A SPECIAL PRIZE FOR PARTY GAME

Here’s a translated quote direct from the Spiel Des Jahre Judges

“The game picks up the basic idea of assessment games, but combines it with a very personal and therefore emotional theme with a positive connotation: Giving gifts!

Instead of simulating conflict and competition (as is often the case in games) players only get points when they succeed in pleasing others. How great!”

This is without question our most prestigious award. Most North Americans won’t realize just how seriously Germans take their games. The SDJ winner will sell 250k+ units in Germany alone. We haven’t won this award, but a special prize for Party Game from the same jury. The regular SDJ award goes to “strategy” type games. In the gaming world this is the equivalent of an Oscar.

We believe this is the first time a special award has ever been awarded to a party game. It truly is a great honor. (In the serious board gaming world we know us “party gamers” are second class citizens - we know our place). I’m hoping to go to Germany to accept the award in person.

Traditionally different ages have demanded different editions of games with age specific content. We all have people skills.

Different gifts mean different things to different people. In the same way GiftTRAP means different thing to different people. What does it mean to you? Tell us!

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE GIFTS

Just about anything can be expressed as a gift. Your time and attention is as much of a gift as a diamond ring. In creating this game we've had a lot of fun choosing a diverse set of gifts to surprise you. We know they will get your friends and family talking, sharing and discovering your passions. Don't be fooled into thinking a game about exchanging gifts is materialistic. That couldn't be further from the truth. It's true playing could expose your materialism but that's a very different thing. Equally playing could expose your charitable side or the fact that you really do listen and you really are a people person. Tell us what you learned!

Here's a few random gift ideas - not all the gifts are in the printed game.
