Day 85 / 101 - Set

If you are looking for a quick, inexpensive, and simple-to-play game that will challenge your thinking in ways you've never imagined, Set is it.  We were introduced to this game several years ago, and it still remains one of our favorites.  It is a game of visual perception where a player is trying to locate 'sets'.  A set is three cards in which each of the four features is either all the same on each card or all different on each card, when looked at individually. The four features are, symbol (oval, squiggle or diamond), color (red, purple or green), number (one, two or three) or shading (solid, striped or open).

This game requires both logic and spatial/intuitive thinking.  You really have to train your brain to see the 'sets', and if I haven't played in awhile, I am rusty the first few rounds.  I have seen my children develop in their thinking skills more with this game, than any other game we've played.
