Set

The boys received a new game for Christmas - Set: The Family Game of Visual Perception. The object of the game is to identify a "set" of 3 cards from 12 cards laid out on the table. Each card has four features which vary as follows:

(A) Symbols: ovals, squiggles, diamonds
(B) Colors: red, green, purple
(C) Number: one, two or three symbols
(D) Shading: filled in, outlined, striped

A "set" consists of 3 cards in which each of the card's features, looked at one-by-one, are the same on each card, or, are different on each card. All of the features must separately satisfy this rule. In other words, shape must be either the same on the 3 cards, or different on each of the 3; color must be either the same on the 3 cards, or different on each of the 3; etc. (game explanation taken from instruction guide)

Do you spot any sets???
