A loud, raucus fun game. Though it is a card game, there is almost no luck involved, as your initial hand has nothing to do with your result. The fastest trader, most flexible player, and the one with the keenest eye as to what is going on will win a disproportionate amount of time--I know, because whenever I've introduced the game to a new group of people, I've won the game 100% of the time, and in fact win well over 50% of the deals! And for you novices, playing with the extra card is confusing at first, but as you get better you'll find that gives you a huge advantage--when I play with experienced groups, if there are 7 players, and 2 have the extra card, the extra card will win about 50% of the deals--so take advantage when it's your turn with the extra card.

Classic party game. Extremely simple, noisy and racous. Great for keeping the neighbors awake.

UPDATE: Upgraded rating from 8 to 10.

Deeper than you think (but not that deep). Subtle tactics, like holding onto cards longer than you should, deciding on how long to hold the Bull card, and not trading high valued cards to players in the lead. However, because the game moves way too fast, most "gamers" won't notice these subtleties and dismiss this game as a mindless and overly loud party game (which are two particularly good features of a party game).

AVOID THE NEW REPOS PRODUCTION VERSION! It does not come with the Bear and Bull cards, which are essential to this game. Stick to the American version with the hard-to-distinguish, monochrome cards. This adds an additional challenge to the game!

=========



One of my favourite party games. You *must* get the edition with the bell!

For causing an immediate descent into chaos, the opening bell of "Pit" has few rivals. The rules can be explained to even neophytes and children in less than a minute, and people with vastly different levels of gaming experience can play and enjoy it on essentially even levels. If you like it at all you'll probably like it forever (there is no curve to master and no "true solution." And the visual experience -- the gasps of frustration as people accidentally exchange identical cards, the bouncing and mad gesticulation as traders try to emphasize their offer over another's, the facial contortions as people run short of oxygen while repeatedly screaming "four, four, FOUR!!!" -- is a pearl beyond price.

Game's been around a hundred years, and no one's been able to improve on it, not for a lack of trying. Brain surgery it ain't, but it's a unique and incredibly fun experience.

This game is awsome, fun, loud, and crazy. We play this with larger groups alot. If you own this or just bought it I suggest laminating the cards, because they get tore up in the heat of trading!! Laminating them also make it a bit nicer for game play,however shuffling is a bit more tedious.

A classic. I played this when I was young, in high school, and still do. I have my grandparents' deck from the 1920s! People who like this game tend to LOVE it, especially when it gets out of control.
As seen on "Freaks and Geeks."

I finally found a 10-player edition!

Except for the occasional person who was forced to play this too much as a kid, everyone goes nuts for this game. Easily the loudest game we play.

I've got the orange bell from another edition...

This is a great game for people who are looking for an introduction card game. The rules are so easy and the game is so quick that playing it is a snap. Plus with the right people, the noise becomes a perk and a fun environment.

My favorite "party game". There are few things better than passing someone the bear in exchange for the card you need then ringing the bell for the win; although I find this to be in poor taste, unless that person is winning. The later into the night you play this game the better it becomes. This game serves a wide range of players and groups. I've had my mom in tears from laughing and my friend up in arms from getting "beared" repeatedly. The Bell is a MUST! Minimum of 5 players needed in my opinion.

We play with the rule that you can trade any combination of goods at one time.
