ok, let me explain with numbers

Alphaland has Bob, Carol and David in their team
Betaland has Eve and Phil
Gammaland has Joe, Irene, Kyle and Lisa.

Scores

Bob 18
Carol 14
David 10

Eve 14
Phil 12

Joe 17
Irene 14
Kyle 12
Lisa 11

Now, Alphaland and Gammaland take away their worst player

Alphaland 32 / 2 = 16
Betaland 26 / 2 = 13
Gammaland 43 / 3 = 14.33

I suppose it's not really necessary, but I thought it'd be a slight advantage to popular countries - it would avoid a 4-man team being punished because the 4th player doesn't tip on the final two days, for example.

And yeah, a winner each week is stupid, don't know what I was thinking there

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again
