Logic games

Postby Fianna13 » Sat Jun 02, 2012 11:58 pm

For those who are killing games, I just have 2 questions for you guys. 1. Which methods are you guys using? Powerscore/Manhattan/Velocity, etc. 2. when you guys do the questions, do you draw the diagram for individual questions next to the main diagram on the bottom or next to the questions like powerscore suggested?

I wouldn't say I'm "killing" games but I'm finding that PowerScore's methods work the best for me. And if it's a local question then I do my diagrams next to the question.

Powerscore.
I do a mini-diagram wherever there is room. Generally next to the question but I have been known to fit a fair number of hypotheticals into little cracks here and there.

1)IMO M is better than PS. I read both and blended them together.
2)Like Dozo said, if its local, working the problem out next to the question is a good idea.

I was doing logic game type puzzles since I was a kid, so I didn't have to learn them
However, I drew my diagrams wherever I found space on a page. The location should just be wherever is easiest for you.

Thanks for the quick responses guys! :D I noticed that powerscore doesn't divide grouping games into in/out and assignment like manhattan suggested. How do you guys approach grouping games? Do you guys just do conditional chains for all grouping games or have a different approach for different types of grouping games? Games has been killing me, its quite depressing :(

seriously, just practice
Do any and every logic game you can get your hands on, from any source (preferably ones with not just the answers, but also explanations). You start figuring out how to solve them pretty darn quickly
