This fast-paced, fun card game will give your child’s brain a workout – and yours too! To play, you compare patterns on the cards and find a SET of three cards before anyone else does.
At first, I thought this game looked too simple and that it wouldn’t keep my interest as an adult, but it came highly recommended from friends so I gave it a chance. And I couldn’t have been more wrong! The shapes are deceptively simple, and finding a SET is challenging enough to keep adults on their toes too.
Another plus for this game: Your child can play the game alone. So when they come to you saying, “I’m bored,” don’t say a word. Just put this game in their hands, and they’ll be all set.
This is a fun mental workout for the whole family!
Note: The manufacturer says this is for ages 6 and up, but according to several other families (including mine!) most 5-year-olds and even some 4-year-olds are ready for this game.
From the Manufacturer
This award-winning game challenges players to race to find as many SETs as they can. A SET is three cards where each individual feature (color, shape, number, and shading) is either all the same or all different. The first player to see a SET calls out “SET!” and grabs the cards – there are no “turns” and no luck here!
Not only is this game fast-paced fun, it also builds skills and exercises the brain. Because it has a rule of logic and because players must apply this rule to the spatial array of patterns all at once, they must use both left brain and right brain thought processes. At the end of the game, the player with the most SETs wins!
SET is perfect for a wide age range and number of players (including solo play!) and is a fun intergenerational game as well.
