Description Sample Pages
 
The object of the game is to identify a 'Set' of three cards from 12 cards laid out on the table. More challenging than it sounds this game integrates logic and spatial reasoning. Suitable for use by chlidren as young as 3 through to adults. Can be played solitaire or with a group.

Rules:
The object of the game is to identify a 'Set' of three cards from 12 cards laid out on the table. Each card has a variation of the following four features:

(A) Color:
Each card is red, green, or purple.

(B) Symbol:
Each card contains ovals, squiggles, or diamonds.

(C) Number:
Each card has one, two, or three symbols.

(D) Shading:
Each card is solid, open, or striped.

A 'Set' consists of three cards in which each feature is EITHER the same on each card OR is different on each card. That is to say, any feature in the 'Set' of three cards is either common to all three cards or is different on each card.

Because the SET® Puzzle involves learning a rule of logic, players must invoke their "left brain" thinking skills. Left brain thinking skills, such as logical thinking, are the ones predominantly taught in modern western society. However, to find the 'SETS' players must examine the spatial array of cards and locate, in the overall pattern, the cards that satisfy the rule.

To do this "right brain" thinking skills must be used. Right brain thinking skills are usually associated with spatial, intuitive thinking. These skills are usually underdeveloped. To effectively employ creative thinking requires use of both left and right sides of your brain.

Both right brain thinking skills, and whole brain thinking receive little attention in school. They remain underdeveloped as we go through life because only a few occupations such as a football quarterback, pilot, or artist require them. However, everyone will gain by developing them. Every time you find a 'SET' you are using your whole brain and increasing your potential to be creative.
