If your league or tournament is round-about a "good" number of teams, try and fiddle
it to exactly the good number. For example, if you're at about 8 teams, fiddle
it to exactly 7 or 9.
One way to do this is by varying the number of players per team: if you have not-quite-enough teams, decrease the number of players per team, and hopefully you'll be able to pick up one more team from each team's overage. If you've got slightly too many teams, increase the number of players per team, or encourage teams to field a "spare" player each.
