I recently wrote a game engine for the card game “Pit” and posted it to my Github.
The Card Game
Pit is a commodities trading card game. It’s quite fun, and good for groups up to eight. Even though I only recently learned of it, the game has actually been around since 1904, when it was first sold by Parker Brothers. The game play involves trading cards with other players until you complete a set of nine of the same card, at which point you yell out (or ring the bell) and declare that you have cornered the market and won the round. Trading consists of yelling out offers and making deals to exchange cards (blind, and always for the same number of cards) with other players. It can be quite hectic, and is probably something like an actual commodities trading floor.
