The following game comes from a variation of the King's Gambit Accepted.  It has a semblance of The Legal's Trap that can be found in this blog.

1. e4, e5
2. f4, d6
3. Nf3, Bg4
4. Bc4, exf4
5. Nc3, g5
6. Ne5 ....

 A trap.  White temps Black to capture the Queen.

6. .... Bxd1

If 6.....dxe5, the game may continue: 7. Qxg4 c5, 8. Qf5! Qe7, 9.  Qc8+ Qd8, 10. Bxf7+ Ke7, 11. Nd5+ and Black's Queen is lost.

7.  Bxf7+, Ke7
8. Nd5 mate.
