Pit!

Loy says: “Having been out of print for some time, it’s good to see Pit make a comeback! This has been a family favorite since some of our Game Guides were young’uns. In this game of trading, you try to collect a complete set before your opponents can do the same … but, you can’t see what anyone else is trading! Jumping up and down, waving wildly, and yelling yourself hoarse is half the fun. It’s easy to learn and play, loud, fun, and will get your blood pumping. It’s okay with three people, but you really need five to seven before this game shows its true worth. We have three copies; so expect lots of trade calling!”

From the box: “Looking for a sure winner in the hot commodities market? Pit, the fast-paced card game from Parker Brothers, has been a bullish performer since its introduction way back in 1904. With all the ups and downs, desperate deals, and nonstop action of an actual trading floor, this lively game offers great fun without risking the family fortune. The rules are simple: Deal the cards, wait for the opening bell, scream and trade like crazy, be the first to corner a specific market (nine cards of the same suit), and ring the closing bell. Sounds pretty realistic, doesn’t it? Once you’ve got the basic game mastered, try throwing Bull and Bear cards into the mix–that’s when things get really interesting!”
