Choosing the Right Path on Those Tricky Profiling Games

For most logic games on the LSAT, it’s pretty clear how you should be setting up your game. If Little Jimmy is going to eat six bowls of cereal and you’re figuring out what order he eats ’em in, you draw six spots on your paper and fill them in. If you’re figuring out who’s on the varsity volleyball team and who only made JV, your groups are the two teams, and then you figure out who was lucky and who wasn’t.

Tiers Without Fears

Most LSAT Prep systems approach ordering games in more or less the same way. First, we start by showing you the classic 1:1 ordering game. Some call these “basic linear” games or something to that effect. But the idea is: you have a certain number of players you have to order, and a certain number of places to put those players, and those two numbers are the same. You have to watch eight Netflix series? On a 1:1 ordering game, you’ll watch them one at a time, first through eighth. Or you have to visit six fast casual eateries? Well you’ll visit one per day, from Monday to Saturday.

Making Deductions in Ordering Games

Even without any practice, an LSAT student could take home a section of logic games and solve it by slowly working through each question by process of elimination. The problem with the LSAT, as we all know, is that this is an exam with strict time constraints, and you just can’t master the Logic Games section in a 35 minute period without using deductions.

Stabilizing Unstable Grouping Games

Recent administrations of the LSAT have seen an uptick in a certain type of Logic Game that we at Blueprint like to call unstable grouping games. If that phrase seems like a string of gibberish to you, here’s an example of the type of game we’re referring to:

Mastering the Second Stage of Your LSAT Studies

Santa’s made his list and checked it twice, and students in Blueprint LSAT’s Winter classes are getting a special gift this holiday season — the gift of starting a new family of Logical Reasoning questions! (The verdict is still out on whether this means they’ve been naughty or nice.)

Tricky Ordering Rules

One of the keys to unlocking the LSAT Logic Games section is to represent the rules as visually and completely as possible. Most of the time, doing so is relatively straightforward, but there are some rules that are trickier to understand and visualize. Today, we’ll talk about some tricky rules you might see in Ordering logic games and how to approach them to squeeze every last bit of information out of them.
