Pure Solomon Draft is a bit unwieldy in UFS, owing to the nature of the game, but fixed Solomon is much easier once you get past selecting the card pool, and arguably the hardest format you can play, so it's good test of skill. Players take turns splitting piles of 8 cards at a time from a large stack (of say, 90-120 cards). The first player in each pod splits each pile however he or she likes, and the second player picks one of the piles for themselves. Then it goes back and forth until no more cards are left. This results in uneven distribution of cards between players but it's completely skill based, as splitting and selecting the piles properly is very difficult.
