Grouping's hard for two reasons:
1) You've practiced a lot of ordering games, so you're comparing your abilities on grouping games that you're just learning to ordering games that were built on a foundation over a period of weeks. Grouping games are going to appear harder because of that.
2) Ordering games have a visual/spatial element that most people find easier to deal with than the conceptual basis for grouping games. In ordering games, you've got a beginning and an end. In grouping games, you just have a few groups.
For grouping games, the most important thing to do is to memorize those 4 relationships. Know them better than you know your girlfriend's birthday. Every grouping game comes down to being completely familiar and comfortable with conditionals/those 4 big rules. If you can read a rule, see that it negates only the sufficient condition, and automatically think 'at least one', then you're golden here.
After getting those rules down, just practice. Ordering games you can 'see' the order; grouping games are more reliant on trusting your work. As you get better, you'll build up confidence, which will make you feel a lot better about the games.
