Anyone at any age can enjoy this game and find a set or two. Our foursome had two in their mid-20s and two in their mid-50s. This game is perfect for a family game night with middle-schoolers too. It's a great mental exercise disguised as a fun game that can teach efficiency, awareness, and perseverance.
The game starts with twelve cards face-up on the table. The directions say this is fast-paced, so I was thinking something akin to the card games Spoons or Slap-Jack. In reality, the only things moving quickly are your eyes. You have to look at the cards to find sets of 3 that match three of the four characteristics, or none at all. So you study every card (it's not uncommon for the group to sit for three or four minutes silently staring at the table) and eventually find a set. It's not a race to that card, you simply have to shout "Set" before anyone else does. After that, you can take your time grabbing your cards--you already have first claim, so there's no rush. However, you get penalized when you're wrong (and you will be wrong, frequently), so be careful.
Scoring are as follows: you count the number of sets you found. That's it. But remember, for each wrong guess, you lose a set (we put them into a discard/burn pile). In each game we played, the winner had four or five at the end. It's not a high-scoring game, so if the leader only has a few sets, everyone is in the game until the very end.
The basic idea is that there are 4 qualities to a card, the shape, the color, the number of shapes on the card, and the shade of the shapes (blank, shaded, solid). In a setup of 12 cards, the first person to spot and call "Set" gets to attempt to take three cards that have all of the aspects of the card either all the SAME or all DIFFERENT. For example: All three have to be the same color, or all different colors; you can't have two purple and one green, they have to either be all one color or three different colors. They all have to be ONEs or a set of one, two, three. They all have to be diamonds (for example) or all different shapes (diamond, circle, squiggle). And, finally, they all have to be solid or all different (one solid, one shaded, one blank) in the more challenging version.
The great thing about this game is that it's good for gamers who are really into other, more complicated games, but also great for kids, families and other people who aren't normally into "serious" games. Great for a tabletop game day OR a family game night.
It's simple, compact, easy to carry/travel with and a quick enough play time that even someone with a short attention span for games can still enjoy.
It's a fantastic pattern-recognition game, and requires much attention. I admit I'm not very good at it, as my visual perception isn't up to par with those I've played, though I still like to play it. It's also a good solitaire game.
The cards themselves are constructed similarly as Bicycle poker cards, though not threaded, and, after 5 years of having and playing with my own set, they've held up well.
From Christmas parties to late-night sessions, Set is a great game that's easy to set up and easy to put away.
