Wait a year re-take it and go to grad school or do something unique with the extra year.  After you graduate law school you'll be glad you took a gap year anyway.
Does the fact that I'm trying to do it, do it for you?

I have a lot of respect for people that put themselves through LSAT hell again.  I was scoring consistent 176-178s; even a 180.  Ended up with a 169.  I just couldnt make myself go through it all again.

What was your average score?  Any guesses on why you went down so much?

Amen.  Even though I definitely felt like I scored toward the lower end of what I could do (in all the practice tests I ever took, I never missed more than 2 RC questions.  So naturally on the actual test I missed 4...), there was no way in hell I could put myself through that again.

I would say to wait a year and get some sort of substantive job in the interim.  In regards to your questions about the games section, definately enroll in a class (I took TestMasters and believe it was the best money I ever spent).  Games are all about setup and time management, and watching a 99th percentile instructor map out games and take you through them step-by-step makes all the difference in the world.  I actually started off missing 6-8 questions in the games section, and aced the section on the actual LSAT (too bad I missed a combined 15 questions on the LR sections).  So definately take some time to work and invest in a class.  Just my .02, hope it helps a bit.
