    Comprehensive List of Circular, Mapping, and Pattern LSAT Logic Games

    A tutoring student of mine prepping for June asked me recently if I could put together a list of Circular, Mapping, and Pattern games that have appeared over the years, hoping to ensure that if the next test continues recent trends of LG weirdness he'll be ready.

    So while it's always a reasonably safe bet that you won't see any games like the ones noted below, savvy test takers are ready for any eventuality. To that end you'd be wise to review a few games from each of the categories here, particularly those from any tests in the 2000s or later.

    Here's the list:

    Circular:

    • June 1991 Game 1

    • June 1993 Game 2

    • February 1999 Game 3

    • October 2003 Game 4

     

    Mapping:

    • February 1992 Game 4

    • October 1992 Game 3

    • October 1992 Game 4

    • December 1992 Game 3

    • October 1993 Game 4

    • June 1995 Game 2

    • September 2016 Game 4 (this is the infamous computer virus game; we labeled it Linear/Mapping)

     

    Pattern:

    • October 1993 Game 3

    • February 1994 Game 3

    • October 1997 Game 4

    • June 2014 Game 4 (trading workpieces; first pattern reappearance in almost 20 years)

    • December 2015 Game 3
