The object of the game is to identify "sets" of three cards. Each card is unique in its four features:

A "set" consists of three cards on which every feature is either the same on all of the cards, or different on all of the cards.

The game includes the variations: Classical, Dancing Cards, Beat the Clock, Continuation, Beat the Clock (extended time), and Solitaire. All variations can be played with either one color or three colors, and all have their own Hall of Fame. (Description from the box)

You should probably create an empty folder for the game in advance, because the installer will dump six items into whichever folder you select.

This is identical to Mind Thump. The people behind this game threatened to sue the life out of Stairways Software for MindThump (and EVERY copy was removed from the internet). They didn't count on Mac Garden users tho Smile

This is a very stupid, slow and difficult implementation. If you want a fun arcade puzzle experience, I recommend MindThump over this any day!

I think this one is somewhat rare.

EDIT: Not another is still for sale by the publishers. So maybe not so rare after all, if anyone is bothering to buy a copy.

EDIT2: I can't work out from the publisher web page whether the version they currently sell is for classic mac only. If it is for OS X only, then I can reinstate the download here.
