Jungle Speed
It's got the same fast fanatic energy you get with pit. Easy rules and easy to understand objective. Wonderful as an ice breaker.

TransAmerica
Again, very fast to teach, not quite as fun as Pit or Jungle Speed but still a great starting game or time filler.

Anyone else want to suggest some?

Halli Galli is the one in my collection that's closest to Pit. It's also got a bell, and it's basically a version of Snap, but it really works. It's also a speed game, quickest reflexes wins.

How about Labyrinth Treasure Hunt, speed game, small, cheap.

And Hot Potato, chaotic, passing things around, small, cheap, fun, family/party.

Wheedle - A good update to PIT where all players can score and there is no one card that gets worn faster than the rest.

This is great. I was just thinking 'what's a good pit-like game?' Jungle Speed looks interesting.

Spoons! You only need a deck of cards and a pile of old spoons.

And sturdy furniture. Spoons was banned at my grandpa's house after one too many chairs got broken. We used to be in the basement while the adults were playing, and you'd hear nothing for a long time, then a mad thumping. I remember people sliding half-way down the stairs once.

Love Pit by the way. I recently thrifted a practically mint 1965 edition (orange cards with green/black art) for $1, but I'm almost afraid to actually use it.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

My son pulled Going, Going, GONE! off the shelf and asked to try it after I said it was noisy and daft like pit, and he really liked it.
