I hate this question like I hate the devil!

My fingers are crossed that I don't get a bad boy like this on the real exam! It would be nice if you could tell us other questions that are similar to practice...

@DrKumar,

This is a challenging game indeed! I would recommend experimenting with the setup here, since it is a non conventional game, it is more visually intuitive to set it up as an actual map with 5 cities rather than a chart or a table with the rules. For me, this made the game a lot easier to understand.

This is a rare game and I cannot recall anything similar on the LSAT, but it does not mean you would not encounter any unusual games on your test. It is helpful to practice rare game types and to try different approaches before looking at the video explanation to see what works best for you.

Good luck!

Hi Irina!

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! Can you please explain how you diagrammed it? If you only knew the expletives I was spewing when I was doing this one, LOL :D

Hi DrKumar,

We actually have a video explanation for this game including setup and going through the questions! Check out that game in the app and hit the play button on the top right hand corner, and you'll be taken to the video.

Maybe this will help! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

@DrKumar,

There is a video explanation which provides one possible way to setup. Since this is one of the few LSAT games that uses real locations, which are easy to visualize on the map - that was my approach https://imgur.com/a/RvmKgf3 . I essentially thought about the maximum number of nonstop flights that could originate from each of the cities - 1 for Montreal, 2 for Honolulu, 3 for Toronto and Philadelphia, and 4 for Vancouver, and since every city that had a nonstop flight to Honolulu had to have a nonstop flight to Toronto, this meant Montreal could not have a direct flight to Honolulu. I think there are multiple ways you could set this game up, that is why I was saying you should feel free to experiment here.
