The nine-year-old is back with me today, and as well as spending the weekend playing Rummy, we’ll also be playing a card game called Set.
It’s a fascinating game all about visual perception. You have to spot sets of cards with the same characteristics – shape, colour, number and shading – or a set of cards with completely different characteristics to one another! The person with the most sets at the end wins.
Being a visual game, it’s very hard to explain, but you quickly get the hang of it and then it’s addictive. I’d recommend it to anyone who likes card games.
Don’t play the nine-year-old, though. She’s the undisputed reigning champion and will definitely beat you!
