This review is from: Top Cards - Pit (Toy)
It's a card trading game where there are no turns and everyone yells out the number of cards they want to swap all at the same time - the aim being to get all nine cards you hold to be the same - very simple idea and enormous fun. It will work with 3-8 players but it's best with five or more in my view.
I played an ancient version of Pit with my family when I was a child and it was one of the best games I ever played (generally at Christmas when there was a big family get together). We have only recently managed to get a set to play with my family now I am a grown up adult. Both my children love it as does my wife, and my mother in law!
Anyway - this Christmas we had four Chinese students spending Christmas Day with us. Their English was pretty good but not for games requiring complex English language. So I decided to give Pit a try. A huge hit with them - they were soooo competitive with their ONE ONE ONE; THREE THREE shouts!
As long as you can count to four and hold nine cards in your hand it is a fantastic party game for all.
