You might know the popular game SET. On the surface, this card game appears to be a contest of pattern recognition; however, it is also connected to many deep mathematical ideas, some of which have appeared in previous Math Horizons issues (for instance, see February 2007 and April 2017). In this article, we explore how we can change the mathematics behind SET to create a new variation of this classic game.
