Classification is overrated. Once you get good at games, you never think "this is an advanced linear game, so I'll approach it this way". Instead you consider what the rules say and how they fit together. At least, that's been the experience of most LSAT instructors I've talked to.

Classification is a training wheel used to make games less frightening. It gets in the way once you get good.

No classification system will help you with a game type you haven't seen before. But knowing the types of deductions you can make in LG will help you. Any new game will have some similarities to previous games, even if it's a completely new type.

For games you don't know, check out the 7Sage or LSAT Blog explanations (after trying to draw it yourself). They'll give you a basic idea of one approach that works reasonably well. Use that to figure out an approach that makes sense to you. There's a ton of variation in acceptable LG diagrams.
