20 teams and 10 competition stations 2014-06-04
From Joel:
I have 20 teams. There are 10 competition stations. Each station will accommodate exactly 2 teams to compete with each other at a time.

Each of the 20 teams needs to compete at each of the 10 stations exactly one time.

Here's the catch I cannot solve: how to schedule it so that each team plays EVERY OTHER TEAM once and only once, while never repeating a station.

A schedule for 6 teams over 12 weeks 2014-03-09
From Paul:
So I have a question. I noticed you came up with ways to create schedules and we are having a really hard time making our lineup correctly. Basically we have 6 teams that will play over a 12 week period every Monday night. The time slots are 1 hr each playing at 6, 7 and 8. We would like each team to play 3 games at each time slot over the 12 weeks. Is this something that can actually be accomplished?
Thanks so much for your help!
