For a while I have been looking at using Excel in Swiss Blood Bowl tournaments, as I believe it offers the most flexibility. I’m finally getting there!
Please have a play, try and spot mistakes, and let me know feedback. You will need to have Excel, and to enable Macros. Latest version at the bottom. I would not recommend using this for tournaments, as the last couple who have tried it have managed to break it! Stick to Score, unless you have a strong reason for not doing so. It did work for Eurobowl though!
|Version||Summary of Changes|
|ExScore v1.2||First published version|
|ExScore-v2.2||Major format overhaul, increased flexibility, Scoring function added.|
|ExScore 3.2||Full results table added, ready for implementing tiebreakers. Opponent score fixed.|
|ExScore-v3.3||Full tiebreakers implemented. NAF upload file added.|
|ExScore-v4.2||Fixed net casualties. Group results implemented, but not Group Swiss draw yet.|
|ExScore-v4-3||Thanks to Alex Bucher for spotting the tiebreakers were malfunctioning. Hopefully fixed now!|
|ExScore-v4-4||In preparation for lots of testing by people, a few tweaks. Hopefully should be usable in an individual tournament now!|
|ExScore-v5-1||Ready for Eurobowl! Please do try to break it, and let me know how you do!|
|ExScore-v5-2||Slight bug with >100 coaches, and tidied up the interface. Hopefully it’s nice and clear now!|
|ExScore-v5-3||Added a button to allow manual choice of group fixtures – suitable for exciting first round draw!|
|ExScore-v5-4||Final Eurobowl version, as I read the small print and realised that Team Opponent Score was the main tiebreaker!|
|ExScore-v7.1||Back to playing – added in a tab to show the Stunty Cup. Spent some time trying to add in extra Bonuses, but there were too many knock-on effects, so parked that one. 2 should be enough for people!|
|ExScore-v8.0||Getting sorted for Eurobowl 2018. Added a Presentation tab for putting on websites and the like and also for printing to enter results, plus some colour coding.|
There is a Credits page in there, giving due thanks to Kaper on the ExcelForum on whose work the spreadsheet is based.
