If it will make you feel better, feel free and study the extra game types. Chances are they will not be on the test though. My guess would be that if LSAC wanted to mess with June test takers, it wouldn't be by bringing back an old game type, it would be to add something no one has ever seen. With that said, good luck!

That may be, but you're also talking about 4 games out of hundreds. Doesn't really justify spending too much time learning one game type due to the possibility that it may appear. It possibly could, but it probably won't.

I agree. I suppose you should become somewhat familiar with the format, though I seriously doubt it would appear on an upcoming LSAT. The test makers would be much more likely to include a game that everyone screwed up from an experimental section on a previous LSAT.

I think PowerScore identifies "Process" games as "Mapping" games. They're a bit tough. Chances are high that they won't be on the test, but I'm definitely playing it safe and playing with them regardless of its frequency.

PT16, Game 4
PT13, Game 4
PT12, Game 4
And a couple more. Kaplan calls them 'process' games.
Oh, god. Switch and Mutate games. There was one in PT 18, too, and I swear there have been other ones since then that I can't immediately track down (though nothing in the 40's or 50's).
We spend half a class on them in TPR classes, and my line is that it's extremely unlikely that you'll see them on test day. Practice them a bit to make sure you know how to do them just in case, but don't spend huge amounts of time thoroughly mastering them. They're from a bygone era (the 1990's).
