We started the night with a few hands of the noisiest game of the lot - Pit. The trading game that involves everyone simultaneously trying to swap cards with other players trying to collect all 9 cards of one commodity.
I'll need to re-read the rules to determine if there is a penalty for falsely closing the market without having the required cards, not that it would have made much difference as I think we all tried it at some point. The game is supposed to be the first to 500, but after about 8 rounds we decided to call a halt on proceedings as the highest score was only 180. I'm not sure if there are any tactics to this game other then being able to shout louder than everyone else and being prepared to trade whenever possible, but it is certainly a great deal of fun.
