We love the story behind the creation of this game. At the end of 2018, after suffering a tragic loss, husband and wife duo Chris and Rachel Gregoire found playing games with family and friends to be healing and their company Fam Foolery was born. In Trap Snatch, you get your team to say the word on your card the quickest without using trap words... or your card might get snatched! The best part of the game is that the wild card collection keeps every round unpredictable. The Trap!, The Comeback and The Lick cards add extra excitement — doing everything from eliminating players and testing their Black history knowledge.
