Quickly sorting and resorting many players

Postby skepticCS on Mon Nov 16, 2009 3:17 pm

I am currently planning a tournament with 32 players who will match up in 4 rounds of 4 8-player standard games. I want to shuffle the players so that they, more or less, play a unique set of opponents each round. Is there a simple formula I can use to quickly do this?

One more element: players are organized into teams of 4 (8 teams), and players from the same team cannot compete against each other. Don't know if this will make things easier or harder.

Here is the tournament if anyone is interested:

It may help you, but with what you're asking you may have to figure it our manually....

That's a really nifty website, Lindax. It doesn't seem like it will work for this tournament, but I can definitely use it in a future one. Thanks!

I think that you could use the windmill-system for this.
In your case you would need as a start two 2x2 windmills (with 3 games per team).
Then reshuffel the teams and do another 2x2 windmill.

Another option is running a half standard competition (7 games per team).
