Group 'Em - A Variation on the Card Game Set

Group 'Em is a solitaire puzzle game where you must find three cards which make up a group.


What is a Group?

Each card has 4 properties:


  • A Color: Red, Blue, or Green
  • A Value: One, Two, or Three
  • A Shade: Light, Dark, or Empty
  • A Shape: Circle, Triangle, or Square


Three cards are said to be a group if the following conditions are met:


  • All colors match or differ
  • All values match or differ
  • All shades match or differ
  • All shapes match or differ

In short, each property of the three cards must match or differ from each other.


Examples:

The above example meets the following criteria:

  • All colors differ
  • All values match
  • All shades match
  • All shapes differ

The above example meets the following criteria:

  • All colors match
  • All values match
  • All shades differ
  • All shapes differ


Hints

It is rare that among 12 cards you will not be able to find a group. However, if you are stuck, there is a Hint feature built into the game. By selecting 2 cards on the board, it will tell you which card is required to complete the set. This can be very useful when you're first learning to game.

Discarding 3 Cards

If you find yourself completely stuck, or just tired of the current cards, you can discard 3 cards at random from the board and replace them with cards from the deck.


Challenge to Get 27 Groups

Although there is no way to lose the game, it is possible to complete a full 27 groups. This requires a great amount of planning and luck. Can you finish the deck without discarding any cards? Good luck!

This is my submission to Trijam #150. The theme was "Grouping". The goal is to create a game in 3 hours. My final development time was 2:55. I hope you enjoy this game.

iba a quitarle una estrella porque no se me daba bien pero eso seria injusto.
