I have always enjoyed games, especially when incorporated into the classroom. I can still remember the game my fifth-grade teachers had us play to explore colonizing a new world. One of the most impactful games I’ve played is SET®, which has become a go-to for mathematics teachers as a means for exploring geometry, combinatorics, probability, statistics, and vector spaces (Larson Quinn et al., 1999; Waddell Jr., 2017). I first learned the game in the seventh grade and continue to play the game today. How many sets do you see in Figure 1?
