Test Your Thetan Levels in this Brand New LSAT Logic Game

It’s the weekend! Time to take a (short) break from your LSAT prep to relax. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m definitely going to see The Master this weekend, since PT Anderson is probably the greatest filmmaker of our generation. You should all see it too!

Anyway, in honor of this movie, I’ve put together a fun new LSAT logic game. Enjoy!

Seven people have been stopped on the street for stress tests – Carl, Daniels, Eef, Flaquente, Geonkole, Horticulture, and Ittatitta. The people giving the stress tests hope to convert some of these people to Scientology. Anyone converted will be converted one at a time, first to last. The following conditions apply.

Opera and Froyo: The Supreme Court LSAT Grouping Game

Note: The following statements are purely fictional. The names listed are in no way intended to represent actual people. Any allusions to real events are merely coincidental.

Nine Supreme Court Justices: Alito, Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan, Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, Sotomayor, and Thomas, are presiding over the case California v. United States (2012), involving California’s ‘Remove Arizona from the Union Act’. At issue is whether it is constitutional for California, the most populous, economically powerful, and generally awesome state, to force the secession of Arizona from the United States due to its controversial immigration policies. The Justices will vote either ‘For’ or ‘Against’, according to the following conditions:

Before the Party, Try Our Cinco de Mayo LSAT Logic Game

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo. Contrary to what many perceive, the holiday is not Mexico’s independence day: it celebrates the defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Cinco de Mayo is celebrated more widely in the United States than in Mexico, where it’s mainly celebrated near Puebla. Don’t let that stop you from partying, but consider augmenting your festivities with some Mole Poblano. In honor of Cinco de Mayo, here’s an LSAT logic game.

I’d recommend that you refrain from trying it the morning of May 6.

A travel club is planning a trip to Mexico. The club will visit at least three of the following seven states: Guerrero, Hidalgo, Jalisco, Michoacán, Nayarit, Oaxaca, and Puebla.

Sink Your Teeth into an Easter Bunny LSAT Logic Game

Easter was yesterday, and by all reports the Easter Bunny had another successful campaign. But before any old rabbit can gain the title of Easter Bunny, he must audition.

Here’s an LSAT logic game on that very subject:

Seven bunny-rabbits: Fluffy, Harry, Jack, Playboy, Roger, Trix, and Velveteen, each audition exactly once for a position as Easter Bunny. No two rabbits audition at the same time. The following must obtain:

Roger and Peter audition consecutively.
Velveteen auditions at some time before Jack or at some time after Trix, but not both.
Fluffy auditions at some time after Trix and at some time before Roger.
Harry auditions at some time after Fluffy.

Tis the Season for a Christmas LSAT Logic Game

This Christmas, due to the lingering effects of the recession, along with the rise of easy online shopping options like Amazon and Best Buy, Santa Claus has been forced to cut costs to remain competitive. He has outsourced gift production to India (largely due to the high demands of the Elves Union), and has downsized his reindeer squad to 7: Blitzen, Cupid, Dasher, Komet, Prancer, Vixen, and, of course, Rudolph. With only 7 reindeer pulling his sleigh, however, ensuring the optimal order of the reindeer is essential for flight. Help Santa save Christmas by figuring out the best reindeer order for his sleigh with the following restrictions:

• Each reindeer must be assigned a position pulling the sleigh, and each reindeer can only be assigned one position, 1 through 7

More Fun and Games with Analytical Reasoning

Most LSAT students have a love/hate relationship with the analytical reasoning section (aka logic games). When things click, analytical reasoning can be surprisingly enjoyable. When they don’t, it can be immensely frustrating. Some students come to love games so much that they’ll sacrifice study time from other fun sections, like reading comp.

Analytical reasoning most often becomes a frustrating affair when students neglect to take time upfront to get a grasp of the game and the rules. Rushing the setup to get to the questions quicker is a surefire way to actually lose time because you’ll constantly be checking your answer.

Below are two hard homebrewed games, tailored especially to help your analytical reasoning practice.

Quench Your Thirst with an LSAT Logic Games Quiz

By now you’ve been introduced to most of the LSAT game types (including ordering games and grouping games), and you should be getting comfortable with the various rules. To test your skills, I’ve created two original games with some complex interactions. You’ll notice some of the questions don’t have answer choices – that’s to force you to anticipate and properly identify the deductions rather than plugging and chugging through the answer choices. Good luck.

You have eight bottles of alcohol in your cabinet: Absinthe, Bourbon, Cristal, Dewar’s, Ethanol, Gin, Hennessey, and Jaeger, and as a thrifty consumer you always pregame before going out to the bars. Having just finished a practice exam, you estimate five shots would be a nice start to the evening. But you’re not sure which to take. Thankfully, you have your LSAT skills to assist you in your selection, which must conform to the following restrictions:
