This is the most basic of events. From the main menu select the [New] event option [Ctrl-n]. The event wizard screen is shown.

The Teams section wizard is now showing. Change the values as you need.

 

The number of teams in the section is the most important item. The number of boards per match is used for VP scales and masterpoint rules.

 

It is assumed that all teams play all other teams in the section. A result is expected from each match. The exception is when there are an even number of teams. In a mirror movement the teams from one half meet those of the other half, not playing the teams in their own group.
