I am having a euchre tournament of five tables and one of six. I am looking for a schedule to fit this amount of people. I can only find for a four table.

I have 11 teams and need to create 3 game guarantee tournament. What format should I use?
You have two options: 1) Create double elimination or single elimination with consolation tournament. You are guaranteed to have 2 games for each team. Now you can manually add games for 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th place. This way you add one more game per team for at least 3 games. 2) Split 11 teams into 3 pools - 4 , 4 and 3 teams. Create preliminary round robin rounds for 4 , 4 and 3 teams. Then advance all teams to seeded single elimination tournament. Seeding is done based on the results of the preliminary stage. This way each team also plays at least 3 games.   
I need to create a 1-day tournament for 6 teams with 1st round being a blind draw then a modified elmination bracket. Is there a way I can manually create a bracket that fits the tournament I am hosting?
You can do almost any tournament configuration manually. However for manual/custom setups there will be no graphics - just game list that you create. However you still have all the features. You get tournament website, game alerts and rankings if you need it. The easiest way to do custom/manual tournament - go to 'Leagues' and create single round robin (even if you need elimination tournament). Go to 'Schedule' and delete games that you do not need. Go to 'Reorder Games' and change game order and/or delete rounds that you do not need. We can assist you if you send us your requirements. Contact support via email

Software automatically advances winners and losers of elimination tournaments. Once you post a game score software analyzes who is the winner and who is the loser and advances them to the appropriate bracket. Please ignore empty nodes.
