Most people believe that the game section (analytical reasoning) is the most difficult part of the LSAT. They’re right. The games are disproportionately hard for two reasons: First, the questions are complex, convoluted, and subtle. Second, it is the most highly “timed” part of the test. That is, you are intentionally not given enough time to finish.

The game section is also the most contrived part of the test. The possible arrangements of a group of people around a circular table has little correlation with the daily activities of a lawyer. The writers of the LSAT use the games as a litmus test, to see whether you have the intellectual ability to make it in law school.

Although this may sound intimidating, everyone taking the LSAT is in the same situation. You probably have never seen this type of problem during you academic career. No specific college course will prepare you for them, except perhaps mathematics.

Furthermore, games are the easiest problems on which to improve, for two reasons: (1) The process of solving a game is very systematic. (2) There are only a few different kinds of games: just three major categories, plus a couple that don’t quite fit. This chapter is dedicated to classifying the major types of games and then mastering their systematic solution.
