Description Edit | History

In SET, each card contains 1-3 objects, with all of the objects on a card having the same color, shape and shading, e.g., two purple shaded ovals. Colors, shapes, and shadings come in three different types: green, purple and red; oval, diamond and squiggle; and solid, shaded and outlined.

All players compete simultaneously and try to claim sets of cards in a single pass through the deck. A set consists of three cards that are either all alike or all different in each attribute. For example, if all three cards have the same number of objects, but three different shapes, shadings, and colors, then those cards are a set; if two of the cards have a common attribute that is not shared by the third, they are not a set.

To play, one person takes the deck and lays out twelve cards face up. The first person to spot a set collects those three cards; if the player was mistaken, then this player cannot claim a set until after another player has done so. After someone has claimed a set, the cardholder lays out three more cards. (If all players agree that no sets can be claimed, then the cardholder lays out three more cards. These cards aren't replaced after someone claims a set.) Whoever claims the most sets wins!

4 alternate SET cards
an alternative deck of SET cards. each card shows two colored shapes inside each other. instead of (color - shape - numer - fill) you have to find (shell color - core color - shell shape - core shape). there is no green color, so this set is partialy colorblind friendly.

1 French Rule
Le but du jeu consiste à observer les cartes exposées sur la table pour être le plus rapide à identifi er un SET. Chaque carte présente des symboles qui combinent 4 caractéristiques: COULEUR (rouge, vert ou mauve), FORME (ovale, vague ou rectangle), NOMBRE (un, deux ou trois symboles), REMPLISSAGE (plein, hachuré ou vide). Un SET est un ensemble de 3 cartes dont chacune des 4 caractéristiques est soit totalement identique, soit totalement différente aux 2 autres cartes. Qui sera le plus rapide et trouvera le premier des Sets de 3 cartes parmi les 12 posées sur la table ? CONTENU : 81 cartes, règle du jeu.
