The setup for me included the basic rules and the one zone restriction. I had no comprehension of the overall game or any inferences. I just got right into the Qs because I knew I only had about 7 min and that there are always some gimmes. Turns out a lot of the questions were pretty basic hypo questions or just asking you for simple first-level inferences. With time and less pressure I doubt this game is that hard. But at the same time, I don't think the questions were designed so that if you didn't have a good understanding you were hooped.
My experience exactly, except I had 5 minutes when I started. Maybe I missed them, but I didn't see many inferences that would lead to a powerful diagram.
I agree. I had only 6 minutes left. After wasting time and trying to figure out how to diagram it, I jumped in to the questions. After the first 2 it clicked that it was a grouping game. The questions were actually straight forward and easy if you didn't try to diagram and just referenced the rules. Trying to figure out how to do the diagram zones cost me -2 due to time unless 22 and 23 were D.
I wonder if people who didn't do a study found this problem as challenging as those who "learned" how to do LG?
