Phil has fanboyed over multiple games. Some of which Heather has really enjoyed, some of which she has barely tolerated. Now it’s Phil’s turn to be a good sport. Set is a pattern recognition card game that Heather grew up playing and is now introducing to the husband. Not a game I was familiar with but apparently very common and very popular.
After watching the game, it’s not hard to see why. Will Phil spoil Heather’s run? Will Heather finally get one over on Phil’s stupidly long on-screen winning streak?
Only one way to find out.
This is also a very inexpensive game to pick up since Set is a card game and so doesn’t need a plethora of pieces or a board.
This delightful playthrough of the boardgame Set is going to be a great watch for anyone looking to learn the rules and gameplay, and a fantastic way to learn by watching.
Set is a pattern recognition game where you want to collect a set of cards that are all the same – or that are all different (same shape or look but different color/shades). The object is to get more sets than your opponent. If you get more than them then you win at the end of the game. Each set is worth a point.
This is a thinking/quiet game but it’s a fun pattern recognition one that is easy to learn, easy to play, and a lot of fun training that eye hand coordination and those quick recognition skills.
What Phil & Heather Think
Set is a longtime favorite of Heather, and was one of the few games that she played consistently prior to meeting (then) future husband Phil and his other gamer friends.
Yeah this is usually Heather’s game. I’m pretty terrible at fast pattern recognition, but it’s a fun little one to bring out and figure out.Phil, one of the rare times he doesn’t have a lot to say.
