**drwls**, Thursday, January 28, 2010 at 1:23pmBy seeing how many arrangements I could make with N players, I found that for N = 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 players, the number of arrangements is 2^(N-1).

If this trend continues, the number of possible arrangements of N = 7 players is 2^6 = 64. Figuring it out with numbers (1 through 7) is easier than doing it with "straws" of different length.
