Hi there,

I am really working overtime to try and figure out how to score tomorrow's beer games.
We are working with 9 events that I would like each team to participate in only once. However due to the lack of RSVPing, there will be anywhere from 8-19 teams. Could you please help ASAP.

Thank you so much!

To stand any chance of having a nice schedule there must be an even number of teams between 10 and 18.  For example here is 14 teams A to N - where (say) the rows are the 9 rounds and the columns are the 9 events.


(K E) (G D) (H N) (F I) (L J) (C A) (---) (M B) (---)
(---) (C I) (G M) (J A) (B N) (L E) (F D) (---) (H K)
(M I) (H L) (---) (---) (C E) (B D) (K N) (J F) (G A)
(B L) (K A) (---) (H E) (F G) (---) (J I) (C D) (M N)
(J C) (---) (L I) (G B) (K D) (F N) (M E) (H A) (---)
(---) (F M) (B A) (C N) (H I) (K J) (---) (G E) (L D)
(F A) (---) (K C) (M D) (---) (G I) (B H) (L N) (J E)
(G N) (B E) (J D) (---) (---) (M H) (L A) (K I) (C F)
(H D) (J N) (F E) (L K) (M A) (---) (C G) (---) (B I)


and here is something similar for 16 teams A to P:

(H G) (C A) (---) (P L) (M D) (N O) (J B) (K I) (E F)
(C E) (P N) (M L) (I H) (A B) (J K) (F D) (---) (O G)
(---) (K O) (I G) (C M) (J F) (A L) (E H) (P D) (N B)
(K L) (G D) (P B) (J N) (---) (C F) (I O) (E M) (A H)
(O B) (M F) (C J) (A G) (I L) (E D) (P K) (N H) (---)
(N D) (E L) (F H) (---) (P O) (I B) (C G) (J A) (K M)
(A P) (J I) (E N) (B D) (K H) (M G) (---) (F O) (C L)
(J M) (---) (A O) (K F) (E G) (P H) (N L) (C B) (I D)
(I F) (H B) (K D) (E O) (C N) (---) (A M) (L G) (J P)
