I had trouble diagramming this. I was not sure whether to use subscripts or not. Is there a rule of thumb about when to use subscripts for a second variable set or when to use a third layer?

Hi AT,

It really depends. The rule I follow is that, once I read the game scenario and rules, is that if I feel the game is too complex to track without subscripts, then I'll go ahead and use them.

In this game, I didn't use subscripts. I simply pulled the inferences out from the groups, and then went on from there without worrying to much about the bird types.

Please let me know if that helps. Thanks!

I split this game into two templates after discovering that the glassware could go either 3-4 or 4-5. Right?

Temp 1: WJ 3-4
M P W/J J/W (F, K :longline: S)

Temp 2: WJ 4-5
(F, K :longline: S) W/J J/W M P

Splitting it this way really helped me zip through the question since so many of them were global. Is there any other strategy you would suggest?

Hi ToluOj!

That's exactly how I'd set up the templates. Good job!
