PlayRight- A “Sorting Hat”

Soluble has today released its newest app- ‘PlayRight’. A better way to choose teams for games, drama or improv performances which ensures every player gets a fair turn, and gets to play with a good mix of other players.

Developer Peter Johnson, said “I went to an improv show where they were drawing player names out of a hat for each game, but they’d sometimes get mixed up and put names back in, or keep pulling out the same pairings of people. As I was surprised that I couldn’t find an app to do it better, I wrote one”

Add players, then select how many you’ll need for the next game. The app will track how many times each person plays, how long they’ve sat out for, and how many times they’ve played with each of the other players, then picks the best possible group for the next game.

If you want to include or exclude a player (perhaps they had asked to play a particular game? or two of the players don’t get on well?) you can move them into or out of the next game before announcing who will play.

Try it out as a free download with up to 4 players, a one-off purchase will upgrade it to remove the limit on player numbers.

You can find ‘PlayRight’ on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and M1 Mac, on iOS 15 and above.
