I want to run a Howell movement with six tables, but the players want more than 22 boards total. Can I specify 27 boards with three boards a round and add +howell+rounds9+ to get a 9x3 Howell, or will the BBO software reset to an 11x2 Howell but play only nine rounds to give a 9x2 movement?

That will work but you need another + before howell e.g. +howell+ +rounds9+

Actually, it works either way. The code looks for `+howell+` and `+rounds9+` independently, it doesn't matter if they overlap.
