Are Older Logic Games Harder? (Ep. 321)

More admissions questions have been rolling in, so Ben and Nathan kick off today’s show by diving into the mailbag.

Listener Shannon wants to know if the older logic games (specifically, those on tests 1–50) are harder than those on newer tests. Ben believes that the games became easier starting around test 40.
