In the course it refers to four hybrid games.

What is the difference between a Grouping/Linear and Grouping/Sequencing.

The example the follows the 4 types refers to a grouping/sequencing.

What is an example of a grouping/linear that is not also sequencing?

They sound a bit redundant.

Hi ericj_williams!

Both Basic Linear and Pure Sequencing games involve placing variables into an order. The difference is that in a Pure Sequencing Game, you only have sequencing rules and in a Basic Linear game you may have sequencing rules but you also have other rules that are not just about where the variables can go relative to one another, but also where they can go relative to the base, such as "L must go 2nd or 3rd."

So a Grouping/Sequencing game is a game that has grouping rules and sequencing rules and a Grouping/Linear game is a game that has grouping rules, sequencing rules, and other linear types of rules.

Hope this helps!

Best,
Kelsey
