This review is from: SET Game (Toy)
Set is a fantastic game that children seem to pick up much more quickly than adults because they don't tie themselves up in knots trying to understand the rules. It is quite tricky to explain what constitutes a "set" of three cards in line with the rules but once several examples are shown and justified, it becomes more apparent. I purchased the product only because a friend who had played it as a child showed me the game, lent it to me and it was an instant hit with my family and friends (I know at least 1 friend has bought her own set of Set!). Have played with just other adults, with adults and children aged between 7 and 11 and used the pack of cards with a 5 year old just as a sorting and identifying game. Asking players to justify the "set" encourages verbal explanation of the visual perception and reasoning that goes on inside your head! It is great fun and can be played as competitively or as co-operatively as you choose, by as many as will. It's very easy for me to call "Set" and then suddenly realise that it isn't at all, which the children find hilarious, especially when they're spotting the very obscure combinations!

Very valid point when you state: "children seem to pick up much more quickly than adults because they don't tie themselves up in knots trying to understand the rules".
