Ready for a Logic Game Workout?

Take the Logic Games Challenge! Manhattan LSAT posted Logic Games Challenge #34 and they invite our listeners to join in the chance to Win $200 off any LSAT Course or any Manhattan LSAT Strategy Guide (your choice!). The latest challenge: Party Problem (Easy)

Before you start let us tell you something! You’re about to play the first of two “sister” games (go ahead one game in the archive for the second one). Taken together, the pair can be useful in thinking about how challenging games are derived from simpler ones. Both of these games are pretty tough – though this one should be slightly easier. The LSAT doesn’t usually deliver easy games of this type, so we figured we’d honor that tradition and make them both tough.

  • If Matt comes, Sara will come.
  • If Lance comes, Oscar and Pam will not come.
  • Matt will come to the party unless both Lance and Reena do.
  • Sara or Tracy, but not both, will come to the party.
