June 2007, Game 2, Setup

The content provides an in-depth analysis of a hybrid game in the GRE prep, focusing on a mix of ordering and floating grouping game strategies, specifically for arranging films over three days.
  • The game involves placing three films on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, with the possibility of showing more than one film per day but not exceeding three.
  • Rules primarily focus on the last film shown each day, necessitating a unique symbol to denote this in the game's strategy.
  • An important strategy is the introduction of a new symbol to indicate the last film of the day, adapting the traditional ordering sketch to accommodate up to three films per day.
  • Key rules include restrictions on the last film shown each day and prohibitions against showing both of two films on the same day, leading to specific placement strategies.
  • The approach to questions involves starting with global questions to establish a possible game outcome, then addressing local questions with specific rules, and using previous work to aid in solving subsequent questions.
