Just realized, the problem is trivial in all cases if you allow N rounds for N players. Just skip the round where "your number" comes up.<br>
For 6 Players in 6 rounds..<br><br>
1: 6-5-4-3-2-B<br>
2: 5-4-3-B-1-6<br>
3: 4-B-2-1-6-5<br>
4: 3-2-1-6-5-B<br>
5: 2-1-6-B-4-3<br>
6: 1-B-5-4-3-2<br><br>
For 5 rounds, 5 players..<br><br>
1: 5-4-3-2-B<br>
2: 4-3-B-1-5<br>
3: B-2-1-5-4<br>
4: 2-1-5-B-3<br>
5: 1-B-4-3-2<br>
Don't know if this is exactly what the OP is looking for, but it reduces the tournament calculation to a count and lookup problem.<br><br>
