Gameplay in Brief:
Players trade with each other while trying to gather a complete set of one commodity in Pit, a fast-paced and often loud card game. It has been in print for 100 years, giving many generations of game players a shared experience.
Pit was almost certainly based on the successful game Gavitt's Stock Exchange, invented in 1903 by Harry E. Gavitt of Topeka, Kansas. Out of the Box Publishing published a centennial edition of Gavitt's Stock Exchange in 2003.
