Like it so much that we can't wait for the cards to be dealt
June 15, 2004

Pit has remained a constant crowd pleaser in my family. We have gotten so into it, that waiting for the shuffling and redealing, especially with the maximum number of players, has become intolerable. So we devised a much faster way of dealing. After a couple good shuffles, the dealer literally throws the cards face down on the table. Everyone takes their nine cards, one at a time (to prevent hoarding). However, the two players to the left of the dealer need to take a 10th card.

Also, to add one more person than the game allows, we have the dealer sit out. In this case we play only as many rounds as there are players.

I would say the game favors players who don't get stuck on collecting one suit during a hand no matter how many they have or how high the suit value is, if they see another suit being often traded. Shifting suits in such a way can increase the chance of cornering the market first.

I prefer the original Gavitt's Stock Exchange!
June 13, 2004

I was in the process of updating my well worn version of PIT, when I came across Gavitt's Stock Exchange.

It seems that PIT was based on Gavitt's Stock Exchange, first released in 1903. For the same price as PIT $9.95, Gavitt's Stock Exchange came in an attractive looking tin that will last much longer then the PIT cardboard box.

Looking inside I felt like I was turning back the clock. I found a well packaged game, that included the original game box, 1903 rules, as well as updated rules, so you can choose to play in 1903 or 2003. The basics of both games are the same, you trade your cards and try to corner the market, but there are rule variations in Gavitt's Stock Exchange that make playability better, such as the point scoring.

Ideal for the whole family, it's a game I enjoy playing with the kids as much as friends. Setting up is a matter of dealing the cards and starting play.

You probably already have PIT, but I found that for game playability, presentation and price, Gavitt's Stock Exchange is my choice over PIT.

Great Game
January 05, 2004

This game gets requested at most of our family reunions. You can play over and over again and the game never gets old. The first time we played we started with 4 people. When everyone saw how much fun we were having (there are lots of raised voices in the game) others joined in. Soon we maxed out at eight players. Real family fun with easy rules anyone can learn.
