Nope. I'm expecting an in-out with ordering though, no real reason why other than that I'm expecting June's LG to be gross. That being said, I'm looking forward to finally going toe-toe with LSAC.

Maybe, but unlikely. Since they've only appeared a few times and those times have been many years apart, plus there have been reports of them in experimental sections at least once or twice in the last several years, they are an elusive rare game type that you cannot rule out even though the chances of getting one are small. Unfortunately, even though the chances of getting one on any given administration are really small, the chances of one appearing again at some point are pretty good. The good news is that when one does pop up, everyone will be just as surprised as everyone else and have to quickly adapt to it in order to perform well, so the well prepared test takers will do just fine and all will be good for them.

Not off the top of my head, but I think there's a swimming game that fits the bill. I'll do some digging tomorrow. Although, there's also the possibility of a game requiring a bunch of hypos, for example PT 68, G4. I doubt we have four difficult games, but I'm betting one of them will be tricky. And obviously, this is all speculation, and should be read as so.

Off the top of my head, the dog-show game is an advanced-linear/in-out hybrid.

A circle game would actually be pretty sweet, assuming it is an eight person game or less. Using the LGB's pin-point method for diagramming these makes them much easier.

Pure speculation, I can see them doing something with weird wording like the bread truck game to throw everyone off. I don't see a super hard LG, I do expect at least one difficult RC possibly of Noguchi like proportions. There have been difficult LGs recently, I think they're going to try and catch everyone sleeping on RC since the last crazy thing they did there was adding CR.
