To find our more about GiftTRAP and creative commons you can read the “Featured Commoner” interview here or check out or home page

This offer only applies to the new GiftTRAP California Edition which is both bilingual and family friendly.

PS We were asked why we give less per copy to CC for 8 games (a case) than for 1. The simple answer is we wanted to offer an incentive for people to buy cases. We thought $100 as a donation was better than $15. To keep it simple we’ve put in a flat shipping rate anywhere across the US or Canada. It’s easier to ship cases - hence the incentive.  hope that makes sense. We want to help raise money for CC and thought people would probably buy single games unless their was an incentive. Not everyone knows GiftTRAP has won “Best Party Game of the Year”
