# Any one else love the game "Set"?

## Recommended Posts

Where has this game been all my life? Ds and I had so much fun during math this morning :D.

Are there any other games like this I should know about? I would love for math to be a blast more frequently!

We love Set. I prefer the online version to the cards b/c I'm never quite sure when to give up. :lol:

I loved Set. I notice that now there's a 3-D version -- using small blocks you can turn to a particular pattern on a particular side.

We own it, but I still don't get how to play it. Anyone want to give a quick "for dummies" tutorial???

DS received SET for Christmas, this reminds me to pull it out to play this weekend. We have enjoyed so many new games this month!

Here's a few more games from the SET family that you might like...more games!

We love Set. At least, I do...I wouldn't let the kids stop playing it with me the other night. :)

It took me a while to care to open the box, then a little longer to figure out how to play and "program" my brain, but once we got it down - it's great!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it goes something like this:

A set comprises 3 cards all the same or all different in at least one of 4 attributes: color, shape, shade and number.

Some examples:

All the same color, all the same shade, all the same shape, different number (1, 2, & 3) = set

All different shapes, all different color, all different shade and all different number = set

All different color, all same shape, all same shade, all same number = set

All same color, all different shape, all different shade, all same number = set

Blink is somewhat similar, but faster moving. Qwirkle is like a combination of Set and Scrabble...

We love Set too! Another favorite here is Rush Hour. Another plus is that both of the games are small, quiet, and will keep ds busy for LONG periods of time. I tend to keep one in the car to take in to restaurants, dr offices, and other places where ds may get restless.

We also love SET! Even the 3.5 yo gives it a go (with help from Dad).

Other games of mental merit (and that are fun) which we like:

Chocolate Fix (independent)

Blockus

River Crossing (independent)

Bananagrams

Gobblet

Frog Juice

We just got Carcassone for Christmas, and 8 yo DD loves to play with the adults (strategy-type game, fun, non-violent).

Love SET

Also:

Blockus

Quirkle
