However, one of the things I remember most were the nicely designed cards, in suits depicting each commodity. In the old days the suits were Rice, Corn, Wheat, Flax, Barley, etc. When I opened the package I received from Amazon, I found "new and improved" cards with new commodities and new graphic design. The Commodities are now Cocoa, Platinum, Gold, Cattle, Oil, Rice, Silver, and Gas. In my opinion, these "improved" commodities are far inferior to the classics. The worst offense however is the graphic design. It's quite awful. The game will of course play the same, but I have to say I am quite disappointed with the cards themselves.
Amazon's photo depicts the classic commodities, albeit with different (crappier) design, but at least that's something. If you decide to order this fun game, be sure to specify that you don't want the "new suits," request the old ones instead.
I remembered playing this game when I was a child with my family and bought for my children who began playing successfully at age 8. It is most fun with at least 4 people. It is a hoot with 8, but bring out the aspirin as it will get loud. There aren't too many games that adults, teens and children can play together without being too simple or complex for some. This transcends all age groups and keeps everyone entertained. I can't say enough good about it and think it should be a staple in everyone's game closet.
The deck of cards has 8 sets of commodities, 9 cards for each (like suits). You will shuffle the deck with a commodity for each player (4 players, 4 commodities...) reserving the rest and deal out all the cards, giving everyone a mixed hand. The simple goal is to be the first person to trade your cards to end up with a hand of just one type of commodity. To trade, you call out what you want and trade with other players. Since different commodities have different point values, you keep score based on the value of commodity that you acquired, beginning a new round after each successful "win". You can set whatever point value you want to make the game last as long as you want.
I've played Pit at tons of get-togethers, including family game night, holiday parties, and dinner parties. It actually makes a great ice breaker, because it's so insane! Plus, I've never met a person who didn't like it! Would recommend for anyone, even people who aren't big fans of card or board games.
