Mathematical Games: The Game of Set

At this website you’ll find the directions (accompanied by
illustrations) for how to play the game of SET. In addition, you’ll
find a FREE printable deck of SET cards.

In SET, each card in the deck has a picture that contains 4 features
including: color (red, green, or purple), number (one, two, or
three), shape (diamonds, ovals, or squiggles), and shading (solid,
outlined, or striped). All of the cards in the deck are different.
The idea is to find a SET — which consists of three cards in which
each attribute is either the same on all three cards or is different
on all three cards. The game can be quite challenging and is lots of
fun for the whole family.

If your children enjoy regular SET, they may enjoy playing the online
version of the game
