This version of the game of SET® requires all players to work together
as a team. It can be played as a solitaire or with a team of any size.
SETS are made according the standard rules.
To obtain the maximum number of SETS in each layout of
twelve cards, so as to achieve the maximum number of points as a team.
Players work towards increasing their team or personal best score.
Twelve cards are laid, face up, on the table in a 3 x 4
The team identifies as many SETS as possible from the twelve
cards. All SETS must contain 3 cards each, you can not remove 2 SETS that
share a card. If there are 2 SETS that share a card the team must decide
which SET to take and which to leave so as to give the highest probability
of obtaining more than one SET when replacement cards are put down. After
all possible SETS are removed from the cards on the table, the score obtained
is added to the running total: then new cards from the deck are laid down
to bring the total back to 12. If there is no SET among the 12, additional
cards are added, one at a time, until a SET is found. The team receives
a penalty point for each card it must add over twelve to enable it to
find a SET. When the deck is depleted the game is over. The total is checked
against the individual and/or team's personal best. There is a performance
rating indicated below.
If only one SET in 12 is found (leaving 9 cards) 0 points
If two SETS in 12 are found (leaving 6 cards) 1 point
If three SETS in 12 are found (leaving 3 cards) 3 points
If four SETS in 12 are found (leaving 0 cards) 5 points
If no SETS are found,
for each additional card needed over 12 -1 point
