Set actually has a bit of strategy. Here's an article I wrote about it. Thought someone here might find it useful/interesting/nonstupid.

Nice article! You are not the first and I dare say will not be the last person to write a paper about SET. For example:
http://www.math.uchicago.edu/~may/VIGRE/VIGRE2008/REUPapers/... for a paper about Affine Caps.

Very cool! It also reminds me: Set was invented by a scientist, in this case a population geneticist, who used cards with symbols on them to represent blocks of phenotype/genotype data. The symbols were fun to stare at, and eventually became Set. Story here.
