New Trapper Keeper® Game Takes Players Back in Time to Rule the School

Nashville, August 1, 2019 — New from Big G Creative, the Trapper Keeper® Game is a fun and nostalgic game that brings back all the memories of stashing homework, class notes and quizzes in an authentic Trapper Keeper® folder. One of the most revolutionary school supply products of its time, the Trapper Keeper® has come back to life in this new card game that celebrates the best of the ‘80s and ‘90s school days and the need to keep your papers trapped in one place.

The game challenges players to school the competition by collecting cards with the most points and stashing them in their Trapper Keeper® folders. Cards include homework, quizzes, parent signatures, report cards, detention slips, notes from classmates, and field trip slips. After the last bell card is played by the assigned Teacher’s Pet, the players tally up doodles and points to determine the winner. Players will enjoy reading the humorous student notes and clever content on the cards.

“Our new Trapper Keeper® Game has a retro feel that will appeal to adults who grew up in the ‘80s and ‘90s,” said Shannon Swindle, Product and Communications Manager, Big G Creative. “The game’s authentic Trapper Keeper® makes it a fun conversation piece, giving families the opportunity to share memories of their elementary and high school days.”

The game is packaged in an eye-catching reproduction of the iconic Trapper Keeper® notebook, complete with a Velcro® closure, and is available in three vintage designs including rainbow unicorn, palm tree sunset and psychedelic outer space—the artwork is inspired by the images that caused a stir when they were introduced to students in 1978.

The Trapper Keeper® Game includes 81 school paper cards, 11 bell cards, five mini Trapper Keeper® folders, a teacher’s pet marker, score pad and pencil. For ages eight and up, the game takes approximately twenty-five minutes to play. Available exclusively at Target stores nationwide, the Trapper Keeper® Game sells for SRP $16.99.
