Zero were guesses. I know I went -0 on LG, RC on the other hand....

I didn't have a hard time at all. I didn't feel as though I guessed on any. This makes me almost nervous that I missed something though with everyone else having such a hard time.

I feel this way as well. The game was definitely a little unusual but not too bad. Now I'm second guessing myself :(

Yeah, same here. I thought I went -0 in games. Aside from being awkwardly worded, I didn't find the zones difficult at all. But everyone else seems to disagree. Now I feel like I'm missing something...

I wouldn't worry. It sounds like a few of us at least would have been in the same situation if we didn't have an initial freak out on the first game that wasn't warranted at all. Not a bad game section in general if you got the first 3 games quickly. The 4th was just time consuming.

2 (half-)guesses, but I didn't have enough time to really check the rest of my answers. For all I know, I can go -5 on that game. I hope it will be -2/-3. The worst part is that the game doesn't seem difficult right now, when I'm not at the test center. Oh well...

I don't know what but I guessed on all of the first and last! I usually go -1 to -4 on games. My middle two games were curiously void of an answer choice so I guessed that for like 8 questions...hope I get about half.

I can't afford to cancel :(

Yeah, that sounds right. (This seems to be treading into questionable content territory...)

No, I thought they were pretty damn easy in retrospect. Unfortunately I just looked at games three and four and freaked out. When I finally calmed down I was like ugh! I should have done these first! I ended up having to fly through them, and as such, probably didn't do well on them.

True. I worked my way quickly enough through the first three to still have 10-11 minutes left by the time I got to zones.

That's not ideal. Without getting too specific (because of both required secrecy and a complete inability to remember the rules/questions), there were definitely rules specific enough to answer at least half of the questions without guessing, provided you had the time to do so.


I agree. I ended up with 5 minutes for this game and did manage some questions very quickly on rules alone. I never got my head around a diagram for this game so just did some quick plugging in for one more question and then made a not particularly educated guesses on 2.

The key for me was not panicing and triaging it. Not great but hopefully I got more than half right.

Agreed. A few could be worked out based purely on the rules (though who knows if I read one of them right). I hope I got those right and that one of my 'guesses' worked out.

The wording of the rules really blew me...I just couldn't get a handle on what they meant. Had like 15-17 mins going into this one, and I know I missed 1-2 for sure. LG is usually my strong suite, so any misses really hurt. I don't even think this will ultimately be considered a "difficult" LG considering how cupcake the first 3 games were. :cry:

I don't think you need to worry...I flipped out at zones at first too like most people, but once I stopped trying to diagram I got through it quickly. It was an annoyingly easy game once I 'got' it (almost too late...didn't have time to check my answers).

This. Once I gave up on trying to build scenarios, I went through this fairly quickly. Had about 10 mins going into this one, so I never felt the need to rush. Thought this whole section skewed towards the easy side.
