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.
Another cool thing about this game? You can play it by yourself! I work with kids and adults with various anxiety disorders and ADHD and this game is great for all of them! For anxiety, it can help take your mind off of the anxiety and put your focus to something in the "here and now", and for ADHD it helps develop focus, persistence, working memory and general executive functioning skills. This game is so affordable, I would argue that this needs to be in every classroom!
The best part of this game is that there's no luck involved. I'm not gonna win because my cards are better than yours. We have the same cards at the same time. It's 100% skill.
You can make it into a drinking game too:
* If you get a Set you get to assign a drink.
* If you call Set and you're wrong, you take a drink.
* If you realize somebody is terrible, then when they find a Set it's a social.
A handicap we've come up with (because some people are profoundly better than others):
* Person A has to find two Sets before they can say Set. They do get credit for both of them. They are also able to find a 5-card collection of 2 sets. (There can be overlap between the two sets. Don't like it? Find one of those two before they find both of them.) When we do this, we determine score just by comparing stacks. (So 5-card Double Sets count for less than 6-card ones. A nod to the haters.) We use 15 cards when we do this to increase the chances of there actually being 2 sets out there. (PS. It turns out that remembering the first Set once you've found the second is a big part of the handicap.)
* If person A is still whooping everybody, then they have to find 3 Sets before they can say Set. Same thing with overlap allowed, and we use 18 cards for this scenario.
