How completely do you diagram your games?

Postby Lukky » Tue Jun 16, 2015 6:22 am

Out of curiosity, how completely do you diagram the logic games?

I feel as though diagramming reduces my chances of error at the expense of speed. I'm using the Powerscore Bible right now, and creating a diagram or two isn't so bad. However, when I have to create a couple of different diagrams with subtemplates for each (because of split possibilities), it takes up a lot of my time.

For those of you with skilled and experienced with this section, what worked best for you? Is it ok to create a base diagram and kind of work things out mentally for some of the questions?

In my experience, the games that require multiple diagrams usually need you to start them all off at least. It helps to keep everything organized.

I set up a basic template with the rules next to them and then put in any constants in heavy pencil. I find it helpful to leave lots of space below the diagram and then for every q just write the scenario below the diagram and I never erase, just continue to do each q below the last. This is helpful when you get to a "must be true" or "Cannot be true" question, chances are one of the scenarios you used for an earlier q can help eliminate an answer. Saves time by not erasing, not making multiple diagram templates and having your old work to recheck certain qs. Hope this helps!!
