The optimal number for a draft pod is 8 people, but it can be often hard to get a even multiple of 8.
If there are an odd number of drafters how should the pods be split? Also if there is any justification as to why it's done that way that would be nice to know.
I am aware of the Wizards Event Reporter, and that it can split players into pods automatically. I want to know how to split pods by hand, in case I ever need to run an event with pencil and paper.
