I Won the Set Duel!

I have played Set since July of 1999 when I was introduced to it in a discrete mathematics course at Rutgers University. I played every single day. That's a lot of games. It is the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning. I have learned that a good time for my Set game is a good brain day. A bad time will be a slow brain day. Then I stumbled across the Set Weekly Challenge at Debra's deblog.com. The times of the Set players there astounded me. I wanted so badly to win the badge for a week but it seemed impossible. Until yesterday! My time of 48 seconds beat everybody (and that's saying a lot because I use a laptop with no mouse, I still play it first thing in the morning without caffeine, and my competition have had times as low as 20 seconds).

I can only claim this award until next Saturday night when another player will walk off with it. I wish I could keep it in my sidebar and list the dates that I won (there may be more!). But alas, I can't. So stop by deblog — Debra is an amazing woman involved with TwitterLit, KidderLit, and BAFAB.

  1. Looks fun! We play in school, and I am pretty good. Maybe next week. (though I would have missed you by over 20 seconds this week...)

  3. Good for you!

    I never played this before, so I had to try. It will take me a while to get anywhere near as good as you, but I can see how this could get addictive. I will be playing again.

  4. I'm going to have to get back to the Set site. We have the game at home but haven't played lately. I'm sure my sons and I could get addicted to the online version. Cool!
