Rules for The End Game SET®

Remove 'sets' considering only one attribute at a time. For example, if eight cards remain (and no sets can be formed) with one card having 1 symbol, three with 2 symbols and four with 3 symbols, by ignoring everything except the number of symbols on the card, you can make one 1-2-3 'set', one 3-3-3 "set" and you are left with 2-2, so the missing card has to have 2 symbols. (It doesn't matter how you break up the 'sets". For example, you could have made one 2-2-2 'set', one 3-3-3 'set', and you are left with 1-3, so the missing card again has has 2 symbols.) Continue this process for each of the remaining attributes and you can uniquely determine the missing card. Amaze your friends! This always works (provided no one has made a mistake taking sets during the game).
Here is an example with 11 cards remaining. See if you can figure out the missing card.
Here's the challenge:
Figure out what the missing card is in your head, and then determine if the missing card makes a set with two other cards on the board. In this case, it does:

The missing card is the two striped purple diamonds.The winner (there isn't always one) is the person who can call "SET" and pull two cards out that make a set when the missing card is turned over.
