( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm trying to figure out the optimum approach for a pyramid game:

Player A can appoint 3 people below them, players B-D can each appoint 3 people below them, etc. with the end result being seven tiers and a maximum of 1093 players.

Each person accumulates points, calculated daily for 14 days, according to how many people are below them and, after earning at least 49 points, they 'win'. Each person can demote themselves to switch places with the person immediately below them. For the most people to win I need to calculate how many points are earned by each person and the the optimum rotation of positions.

Any suggestions on a good approach or module to learn for a beginner? I've looked at Tree:MultiNode but didn't seem quite what I needed...
