How to keep track of moving variables in LG

Postby ltowns1 » Thu Feb 12, 2015 2:03 pm

I'm really good at figuring out the inferences that need to be made on games,but I get sloppy when it comes to placing my variables in my hypothetical, especially when it comes to what can move where. Do you have any tips for how to represent variables that can move?

If the variable can be moved based on formal logic, or it can only move between 2 or 3 slots, splitting the game board is often a good idea.

I had similar issues on my first prep-test, but creating a master game board (and then copying it for each unique question) seems to be the go-to method. Take a look at 7sage videos for some examples of what we mean.
