Everyone has seen it sitting in Toys R Us, but not many realize the game Pit was developed by Edgar Cayce.

Just found it out over at another site and figured it would be pretty cool info for over here.

I may be in the minority but I've never heard of this game & I used to work at TRU as a kid. :shock:

Still, it is odd/funny that Cayce turned out something like this that has apparently been popular for over a hundred years.

Pit is a commodities exchange game played with cards with different items listed (stuff like wheat, corn, oil and silver) on each card. During play, each person is dealt nine cards and keeps them hidden from other players view. Then players begin the trading phase by blindly offering 1-4 cards (all of the same type) by calling out the number of cards they wish to trade. An offer is accepted by another player by holding out the number of cards called out face down. The trading continues until one person has nine of one item or eight and the bull card. Points are given based on the type of card the person "goes out" with and each ame last to a predetermined point value or number of rounds.

I completely forgot to update this. I went to the Goodwill store (best place to find older board games and such for a song-found a complete originalo Axis and Allies for two bucks the same time as this) the day after I had written the description of Pit and found a complete, sealed copy of the deluxe edition (which means it has a cool bell like they show being used for bellboys) for a buck.

I wonder if Cayce ever saw me buy it?
