Decided not to look at the wikipedia page as an idea hit me straight away so the logic may be different but it works. Made a batch macro to do this but I could have easily made it an iterative one.

 

This solution will work for any even number of people. I enjoyed this.

Implemented the Wikipedia solution in Alteryx, but it will work for even or odd numbers of people 🙂

Used the formula from wiki as the iterative check:
([Max]-1) != ([Engine.IterationNumber]+1)​

Hi,

 

This was a super cool challenge. Learning the way how to use the Circle method was really fun!

Just for fun, an implementation of the Schurig table method, which will work for odd and even counts.

Was a bit challenging to get my head around at first but understanding the rules for the wiki helped!
