* In TabletopGame/{{poker}}, massively overbetting with unbeatable hand sometimes causes people to call you, because, "Surely, if he really had a hand, he would bet less so as to get paid."
* ''TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}}'' is guilty of this trope in nine different shades; Space Munchkin's "TRAP! The Most Fiendish Trap of All!!" actively illustrates this with a BigRedButton.
** The Duck of Doom. You should know better than to pick up a duck in a dungeon. (Anything as harmless-looking as a duck is bound to be a HappyFunBall or KillerRabbit if it's in a dungeon...)
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''
** The flavor text for the card Fat Ass from the parody set ''Unhinged'' has the flavor text, "Our lawyers say no matter how funny it would be, we can't encourage players to eat the cards. Hear that? Whatever you do, ''don't'' eat the delicious cards."
** In an official website article, the author makes a point about the nature of Magic's goblins by offering readers several large red buttons to push. Pushing them (sometimes after several pushes) causes the text and graphics to become scrambled. Except the last button. ''That'' one gives a censored preview card for the new expansion.
** Whenever your opponent plays something you've never seen before, it's a normal reaction to grab the card for a second to look at it and figure out what it does...Unhinged made this instinctive act come back to bite the player with [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=74319 Vile Bile.]]
** If your opponent has mana available and cards in hand on your turn, odds are they're waiting for you to play something so they can respond to it somehow. Each color has different ways to respond to different cards, but the biggest example is a Blue player waiting for you to spend all your mana to play a creature so they can either [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=265403 counter]] or [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=265715 return it to your hand]].
* ''[[Tabletopgame/YuGiOh Yu-Gi-Oh!]]'' card game: The illustration of [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Reckless_Greed Reckless Greed]] shows a greedy man reaching for a treasure chest that is clearly over a trapdoor and [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes and filled with snakes]].
** Trap Cards in general. Your opponent has a completely monster-free field, and you're packing five monsters with 3000 ATK each, ready to bash their brains out. All they have is one measly face down card in their back row. You take the shot, and suddenly you're hit with some ungodly powerful card that completely [[RocksFallEveryoneDies wipes out your field]], and allows them to special summon their 6000-ATK flagship monster for the endgame attack.
