CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Get a taste of trading on the commodities market with this Deluxe Pit Game. Shout your deal and trade your cards to try to “corner” the market. Be the first to get all the cards of one commodity and ring the bell to win that hand. You’ll feel like a real trader in the “pits” of the exchange.
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!
Pit comes neatly boxed with a set of durable game cards, instructions, and a heavy-duty metal bell that's great for slamming. There are rules included for a silent bidding version of the game, but jumping up and down, gesticulating wildly, and shouting yourself hoarse is half the fun. --George LaneySee all Product description

I remembered playing Pit as a kid and I remember loving it. I needed a good game for a youth group I work with and thought of Pit.
It's fun and noisy. The noisy part is what the kids like - they have to spend all day at school listening and trying to pay attention and Pit gives them a structured way to shout and enjoy themselves.
It's also incredibly easy to learn - unlike some games with pages and pages of rules, you can read the Pit rules, play it once and you understand it. Unlike some games which are cooperative, it is competitive but it gets kids talking to each other as part of the game and helps them break down social barriers.
I'd advise against buying it if:
- You don't like loud noises and lots of shouting.
- You're a recluse who doesn't like people.
- Pavlov has conditioned you with a pain response to the sound of a bell ringing.
- You don't like having fun.
If you're still with me, you're going to love this game. We love playing with our friends. Who knew that trading cards back and forth could get so crazy? The gameplay is fast paced, as you try and collect a whole set of like commodity cards before anyone else does. For an added challenge, the Bull and the Bear card can be added in as a wild card and a penalty card. It makes the game that much more fun if you know getting sticking your nemesis with one will send them into a negative score!
Well that set the tone for this chaotic, screaming match for our family of six.
Each set (standard vs. deluxe) from the screenshots seems to have different artwork and/or commodities, with the deluxe being a nicer set in my opinion.
I'm happy we went with the deluxe version for double-the $8 price of the standard, as everyone wants to ring the bell.
It's a game that can be taught within 30-seconds to anyone new...whether they are a table top gamer or not.
I didn't give it five stars because it's still growing on me how such a simple game can be fun for more than fifteen minutes. But so far it has been.
