  • In trading card games (namely Yu-Gi-Oh!), a card you place face down on the board so the other player cannot see what it is, but it can be brought into play when certain conditions are met. For example, your opponent thinks they are attacking you undefended, but they fall into your trap and you crush them.

    Used in the phrases "you just activated my trap card!" and now "you have triggered/set off my trap card!"
