Run, Don’t Walk, to This Godzilla-Themed LSAT Logic Game

Godzilla opens in theaters today. This dinosaur with human arms has quite the nuanced history. This kind of nuance is the stuff of killer LSAT questions. So, in honor of the masochistic dinosaur fetishists at the LSAC, the LSAT blog brings you an original Godzilla-themed Logic Game, complete with B-movie plot hole!

During seven consecutive days, Godzilla will visit seven cities: Albuquerque, Billings, Chula Vista, Detroit, Erie, Fresno, and Guangzhou. Each city is visited exactly once. During each visit, Godzilla will fight exactly one of her seven enemies: Varan, Oodaku, Rodan, Titanosaurus, King Kong, Mechagodzilla, and Spacegodzilla. The outcome of each fight will be judged a win, or a loss, but not both, for Godzilla. The following is somehow known about Godzilla’s visits and fights:

Godzilla visits Billings and Guangzhou before she visits Albuquerque.
Godzilla visits Fresno, where she loses, after she visits Albuquerque.
Godzilla doesn’t lose any fights after her fifth visit.
Godzilla wins her fourth fight.
Godzilla doesn’t fight Oodaku first or last.
Godzilla fights Mechagodzilla and Spacegodzilla consecutively, winning both fights.*
Godzilla fights King Kong in Chula Vista after her visit to Fresno.
Godzilla fights Rodan second.
