New Trapper Keeper Game Based on the Iconic '80s School Supply

The ultimate '80s school supply has returned as a fun new card game! Big G Creative (Bob Ross: The Art of Chill, Monster Crunch!: The Breakfast Battle Game) has teamed up with Mead to bring us the Trapper Keeper Game where players can relive their '80s school days when everything was stored in a Trapper Keeper.

Available exclusively at Target stores nationwide, the game comes as a mini reproduction of the iconic Trapper Keeper notebook in three eye-catching styles. Here are more details from the Aug 1 press release:

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.

Look for the Trapper Keeper Game now at Target retail stores nationwide for $16.99 and available soon online. Rediscover the '80s will be shooting a review video in the near future to go in-depth with the new game.
