### PT 68 - Game 3

Did anyone else find this game to be tricky? How would you classify this game? I understand it is somewhat linear, it really threw me a curveball during timed conditions.

It slowed me down the first time I took it, mainly because I confused the voicemail and the maintenance columns and that threw me off for a solid minute, but when I reviewed it and took a look at it, it's really a pretty easy game with very limited options. I haven't seen the 7 sage video for this one, but I bet it would help you out.

I don't have it on me now, and haven't seen the video, but in your main diagram, draw all the possibilities- there aren't that many. Something like (and these are random numbers, but only 1, 2, and 3 are possible)

1,2 2,3 2,3

2,3 3 2,3

There really aren't many possibilites. Once you have that, each question is pretty easy.

Dude, don't feel bad. I got my ass raped by this particular game...on the REAL LSAT.

I'm not sure what I would classify it as, but after my Manhattan training, this was cake.

Below is how I diagrammed it. Once you figured out how it worked (just as all games) it became just as easy as the first two in the section.

Yeah, after seeing the Manhattan explanation it was super easy! Just during timed conditions I thought "what the hell is this game".

December was terrible. I had 2 RCs, struggled with the 3rd LG, and didn't even get to the last 5 LG questions. When I retook it though, everything but RC was easy. I'm not sure if my nerves were so out of control, or if I just didn't have the understanding of the test that I now have. I'm guessing that it is a bit of both, but hopefully more of the latter.

Same lol. I seriously had worst case scenario on that day. 1st section was LG then my 3rd and 4th sections were both RC...back to back and absolutely mind-fucking.

LG book. That's all I needed. After the LG book, I found most games pretty easy just because of the changed way that I approach setups.
