This gift suggestion is a blast from my past, one of my favorite childhood games. Booby Trap is a classic game that’s been a family favorite and played by millions of people since the 1960s. Now this smash-hit is back the way it was originally, with a wooden, spring-loaded game board and classic gameplay.
The game board creates tension while players attempt to pull pieces off of the board to accumulate points. The larger the piece, the higher the points…and the risk! A steady hand and good decisions are required to win. One false move and the tension bar snaps, causing pieces to pop and your score to drop!
Ideal’s Booby Trap is designed for 2-4-players, measures 11.5-inches by 1.5-inches by 7-inches and includes a spring-loaded wooden game board, (21) large (yellow) pieces, (21) medium (red) pieces, (21) small (green) pieces and instructions. Ideal’s Booby Trap Classic Wood Spring-Loaded Tabletop Game is recommended for children at least 8-years of age. This is a very affordable game, made with real wooden pieces and it’s both a nostalgic treat and a lot of fun for today’s kids.
Available where ever Ideal games are sold (Gabriel Brothers, that calendar store in the mall) and as usual, cheaper at Amazon. It’s a great game and has the added bonus of having the word, “booby,” in its name, so you get a little extra fun out of that.
