It used to be that on the first question of each game, you could apply each rule to the answer choices and, generally, eliminate 1 choice per rule. Now, sometimes multiple rules go unviolated, and, instead, one rule (or combination of rules) will violate multiple answer choices.
Sometimes, especially on PT 59, it seems the right answer is "hidden" in a way such that I have, more than once, eliminated all five answer choices, only to have to redo the whole thing.
They're not harder to diagram or "crack," necessarily, but the mechanics of solving them has become more difficult.
You really need to take a 'time out' break for R&R like RTF now if you are taking the October test!
You have the signs and symptoms of LSAT over-saturation and burnout!
When you have variables constantly dancing and rotating in your head with sets like FGLNPST FGHJKLMN echoing in your 'self talk' and are stressing about whether to sequence or group them and whether there is a numerical distribution, it is time to take a day or two off to decompress!
When in that 'blindly staring at the sun' paralyzed state of mind from hitting the PT's and games a bit too hard you have to take at least one day off to walk away from it and get perspective.
ION: The dino game was an advanced difficulty one, but was nothing new in terms of type, unusual surprises, and all that. It involved numerical distribution of the elements in ways that many games have tested in the past. The rules dictate some basic math distribution parameters.
