I think we've got the following so far, if I've made a mistake let me know. The interest in this swap has been pretty high so cheers all for joining in.
The plan will be to post on or before weekend of 27th May. I'll open the feedback thread that weekend too.
It looks like the field is too small to have Excel cope with the third bottle so I'll come up with another plan and post swaps early next week. Any suggestions on how to organise them will be gratefully received.

I can picture the logic in my head but I won't be in front of a pc until tomorrow night to actually try it out. I'll PM you about it.

How about you first remove the two folk swapping 2 beers. Then give your three beers to the three people below you, samale’s to the three below him, etc. Wrap around from bottom to top for the last few. Once all are done, swap four beers at random with the 2 folk with 2 swaps.

Nice one, thank-you. Secret Santa was easier with almost 50 people swapping either 1 or 2 bottles. Clashes within and between swaps happened, but much less frequently. Good luck👍

We ran the 3 bottle cream ale swap along those lines and it worked well.
Thinking it through Gonzo and Fireblade just need to swap a bottle with each other and a bottle with either one or two of us who fancy an extra bottle. I’d be happy to take one for the team on that front (or even two😂)

I think everyone who is taking part has owned up, and a big thinks to @jceg316 for organising the swaps.

Send you address to the brewers who are sending you beer, and send your beer out tail end of next week or at the weekend.
My eyesight can just about manage the tables. If you're even more Mr Magoo than I am drop me a message and I'll reply in a really big font.
Looking forward to seeing how everyones beers turn out and the feed back that follows :hat:
