You Didn’t Need That Anyway


Here is another installment of exTRAPaganza, our Thursday over-the-top trap series. 

Something in the air reacts with gold, causing it to become volatile. It starts to foam, them bubbles and melts, squirting molten gold all around, where it turns into steam, burning everything and then vanishing. Bummer about all those coins.
