Challenge #247: Pairing Partners

9 - Comet
Spoiler

I spent a long time going on completely irrelevant tangents before finally giving in and looking at the hint! The only thing I can't work out is why there is so much duplication in the output for my Macro, but that's easily resolved with a summarise tool!

This was a real brain teaser.

Thanks for this challenge @PhilipMannering

its not the exact answers but it does create unique pairs.

PS: let me see how was the solution workflow built to get those answers.

Cheers and Happy Analyzing 😀

Merry Christmas🎅

My solution for challenge #247

8 - Asteroid

Done with this as well.

All possible pairs have been created, however the week number might be different.

10 - Fireball

Hi! Intermediate? This was a tough one haha! 😉

Spoiler
8 - Asteroid

Simple solution using the Circle method described in Wikipedia - needs a bit more work to make it work for any even number of people.

7 - Meteor

No macros. 'Advanced' dynamic solution. Used 8 tools.

Spoiler

Quite interested in possibly shorter solutions.

Great challenge.

9 - Comet

Found myself heading down the macro-rabbit-hole with this one and then pulled up before flying into the mountain. Ultimately solved the challenge and then rethought my approach creating a generic answer that will work for both even and odd counts of people (the odd scenario removing the bye each week). All in all pretty slick!
