    Excellent family game

    My kids loved this game. It's more challenging than it might seem at first glance, thus keeping the boredom level low for adults, yet easy enough for my 8-year-old to master. Making the required matches involves lots of thought on several levels for each round. An intelligent game that makes for good interaction between players.

    A Game That Keeps You Coming Back for More!

    SET is one of those games that keeps you coming back, even long after you've "mastered" it. The fact that everyone plays at the same time keeps it interesting, and the game definitely keeps you on your toes. Its so fast paced and so much fun. My daughter's beat my husband and I every time. Great game for the entire family and makes a gwonderful gift for teachers. SET also travels well!

    Great Card Game for All Ages

    I lost several times playing this with my nine year old niece. I also won this ten times in a row against my husband. In conclusion, this is a great card game for everyone in the family to play.

    Learning has never been so fun

    Great game for all ages. Need to help out younger kids at first to understand the concept. My son is 5 and he can find some of the more difficult sets now on his own. Teaches stratedgy, logical thinking, sorting, all sorts of great math and analytical skills. Not to mention it is a blast to play!

    This game makes the perfect gift. Adults, little kids, teens, all genders. At first you think, "Oh. A new card game. Meh." Then once it's open and a few cards are set out, BOOM! You are all hooked. As I look at all of the games we still own and still play (youngest is 18) , this one earns top billing as the best and most played of all time.

    Set is an amazing, fun game that keeps you playing for a long time. Highly addicting, and nice for kids of all ages. I had fun when playing with others. This game makes you think and look for sets, and it is very fun! Although it is had to understand at first, the habit of finding sets catches on.

    Stimulating and Fun!

    Since the moment I was introduced to this game, I have been hooked! This can be played individually or with a group. I love that versatility. My only dislike is the fact that the initial game that I started playing came in a case and the one I purchased did not. The case is so easy to carry and transport, but the one I have is not so easy.

    This game is great for family time, as well as for Solitaire. Itis a sure party game that will provide fun and help you develop attention to detail, simultaneously. I highly recommend this game. My daughters even play with me. the 7 year old is really good. And the 3 year old is even catching on.

    Great game, but the one issue is that, if you're familiar with the game already, you will have a decided advantage over anyone new to the game. This can be frustrating for people new to the game.

    Great for kids and adults

    This is a game that keeps your mind active. The kids love it. I saw my kids play it elsewhere and now they love to bring it out and teach other adults and kids to play. My son is 13 and gifted, and it is fun for him to see how sharp and quick his mind is. Everyone can learn and play and it is so portable, it is good for quick fun anytime.

    FAMILY FUN, FUN, FUN!!

    We were introduced to this from my daughter's Critical Thinking Class and we all love it! Whenever two of us start a game, everyone else just joins in. Even though the younger kids (6 & 9) had a tougher time catching on, once they figured it out, they always want to be a part of the fun in the end.

    Great Game! Family loves the challenge!

    This game is one of those that takes practice. The more you play it the better you get at it. It's a great memory game and recognition game. It really helps perception and logic. Don't get discouraged... keep playing!

    SET: The Family Game of Visual Perception

    My whole family loved it. We played it at Christmas. It is fast paced yet requires some skill and competitiveness. The instructions weren't very clear but once we practiced playing a couple of times the instructions began to make sense. The age of the people who played,understood what to do and liked it where male and female between 20yr. and 49yrs and varied from a school teacher, maintenance person to a captain in the military. I believe This game really makes you think and most any one can play it. We even had my granddaughter involved who is 8 by keeping score because it's pretty fast going. It's lot of fun when you have a group to play too.
