When someone tells you to “play the numbers” in a Logic Game, does your mind go blank, or even worse, to some kind of ill-conceived gambling scheme? If you’re not yet comfortable with playing the numbers, then you’re in luck (with your LSAT aspirations at least). Playing the numbers is mainly going to be a method deployed on overbooked and underbooked logic games. It’s a way to determine the parameters of the game (the smallest and largest numbers you can use while applying all of the game’s rules). This allows you to narrow down the game to a few possible scenarios. Let’s look at a couple examples to see how you would “play the numbers” in an actual game.
For years, Blueprint has strived to offer the best LSAT prep, whether you’d prefer to learn in a classroom or at your own pace from the comfort of your home. So we’ve offered live classroom courses at major markets all across the nation, for students who want a consistent schedule and the option to ask questions to an instructor who knows the LSAT inside and out. And we’ve also offered, for those who like to go at their own pace or who can’t make it to a classroom a few times each week, an on-demand online course, which covers the same material as the classroom course, but through online videos students can access at any time.
