These diagrams show the rules used to decide when the concert promoter will schedule bands (U, V, W, X, Y, Z).
Refer to these diagrams when solving this game. Copy them on your own page, and on each question make a new version of them in order to follow along with my explanations. You’ll learn much more if you draw along.
The setup section explains how to build this diagram.
Notice that all six variables are represented, along with their rules. This setup makes it pointless to draw a separate list of the variables (UVWXYZ). Such a list adds no value, and wastes space and time.
This setup also makes it easy to visualize possibilities. You don’t have to hold any rules in your head.
It’s difficult to explain what you see inside your own head. But when I look at these, I can see V – Z – X floating over the diagram and interacting with Y and U.
Obviously, whether or not you can do this depends on your visualization skills. But I expect it’s a learnable skill to some extent. Practice seeing the variables move around over the diagram: it really comes in handy for sequencing games.
