I have a game where there are 12 teams. One round is where 3-4 teams play at the same time and only one team wins. I'm looking for how to put a schedule for all the rounds needed to determine the champion team.
Example: Let's say I have teams A-L (12 teams): First round teams A-D play, let's say team A wins. That would be 1 round, 1 winner. So I would need 3 rounds to get 3 winning teams, then a final round where the 3 winning teams play.
But I'm looking for a more "fair" way of getting a champ where teams could have a loss and still be the champ. And I can't figure out how to schedule the rounds to do that in a 12 team competition where 3-4 teams play at the same time in a round.
