Set Game Tips

Leave a comment

I got into Set Game about a few month ago. Though not an expert by any means, I am getting better. And through trying to get better, I could not find any online resources to tips for this game. Here are some tips or ways of thinking that may help you.

First, for me, I usually get between 1 and 2 minutes. My record is 36 seconds. Although sometimes I do get into 3 and 4 minute territories.

The basic premise is all the same or all different.

I try to identify rare linking cards and work off of them. If there is only one 2, then I look for a 1 and then think what would be the only usable 3 to go with it. If it’s not there, scratch that and move on.
Look for the rare linking cards.

I see what colors are present and if there’s 3 of something right away. This is usually easy to analyze quickly.

Be methodical. Check all equal fills, all 123s, all 1s, 2s, 3s, all equal shapes. The same fills, numbers, shapes should be easy but they are sometimes left out and you usually kick yourself when you find it at the 3:30 mark.

Don’t worry about duplicate sets. Don’t bother checking your status on the side, it’s a waste of time.

Narrow down what is possible what is not possible. If there is only one card with a singular item on it, you can do a 1,2,3 with that card only – so exhaust all possibilities with that right away.

Do you have any other tips?

Video Encoder Endorsement: Super (C)

The best video encoder!

http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html

It is hard to find a program to convert your video files.
Many programs don’t have the options, and many have licenses and aren’t free.

There is almost always a free program out there – open source or otherwise – that will solve all your problems for you. If only you knew about it.

I want to hand in my endorsement of the day – Super (C)

This program is so powerful, it can convert just about any video file to just about any video file.
from the site: aac, ac3, amr_nb (for ring tones), amr_wb, mmf (for ring tones), mp2, mp3, mpc (MusePack), ogg, wav, wma

I use it almost every day. There are so many options and the quality is great. The speed is relatively fast too. There is nothing substandard about this converter at all. In fact, this is the best encoder I have ever used, paid for or not.

Check it out and if you have something better, let me know. Have fun

What are the best Facebook applications?
good question. Seeing as how there are at least 50 new ones every day, there is no way that this page can ever stay up to date. Also, applications should only get more intricate as we go along.
So, put a comment to this post your favorite application and what makes it so good. Let’s all learn from eachother. Thanks!
