We're doing the workshop on Tues. even (the 11th), so just like everyone else, we're really hoping that the scores are released soon or else we're going to be up all night preparing. PM if you would like the sign-up link.
I agree about speeding up the simpler games. Most normal people aren't going to solve games 2 and 3 in 8:45. But game 4 can be done in under five minutes. You shouldn't prepare people just to be able to knock out games like 2 and 3 in 8:45, because games like that are hard to predict. All you can do is give a flexible test-taker the tools so they can calibrate when they see something they weren't prepared for, but those games would still take time. It's just as important being able to solve the easy games like 4 in under 5 minutes, because realistically, if you couldn't do 4 in 5 minutes, you probably won't be able to finish that LG section as a whole.
