There are 81 cards, divided into 9 colors. The cards are so simple that only painted with that solid color. It supports up to 9 players. The game play is:
1. Deal 9 cards to each player
2. You trade arbitary number of your cards to others, aquiring same number of cards.
3. The trading is in free format, there is no 'round', 'phase' etc. Just trade like in a market.
4. The first player collect 9 cards with same color wins.

The game is very simple but has lots of fun. Does anyone knows the name of this game?

Pit uses these mechanics, but in the more common versions has a different type of grain on each card. Each grain is worth a different number of points, which you get for collecting all 9 of that grain. You play a series of rounds to get up to 500 points. Other differences are that pit has two optional wild cards and I think it traditionally has only 7 suits.

Gavitt's has fewer cards, according to the pictures here.

There is also Billionaire (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/6776 - the date of 1996 is incorrect, it's been around longer) but I think this also has only 8 cards in 8 suits.

I recall the name is Billionaire.!! Thanks very much
There is no $$ concept and the graphics is nothing (just solid color). I think I'm playing a 'clone' of this game blush
Last time I played it is 10 years ago so may be it was 8 suits....

Wheedle (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/5393) also plays similar to this.
