OCG Rulings

When "Grinder Golem" is Special Summoned, you Special Summon the two "Grinder Token"s, and then you Special Summon "Grinder Golem". Since the last thing to occur is Summoning 1 monster, "Giant Trap Hole" cannot be used, since you miss the timing

Previously Official Rulings

You cannot Special Summon "
Grinder Golem" if you do not have 2 open Monster Zone Spaces for the "Grinder Tokens".

If your opponent negates the Special Summon of "Grinder Golem", the "Grinder Tokens" remain on your side of the field and you cannot Normal Summon or Set that turn.

If you Special Summon "Grinder Golem" while "King Tiger Wanghu" is face-up on the field, its effect activates to destroy the "Grinder Tokens" after "Grinder Golem" is Special Summoned.

Mentions in Other Rulings

Giant Trap Hole:" You cannot activate "Giant Trap Hole" when "Grinder Golem" is Special Summoned.

Queen of Thorns:" If you Special Summon "Grinder Golem", you only pay 1000 Life Points, because the "Grinder Tokens" are not Special Summoned from your hand.
