Cyclic pairs movement, usually dictated by movement cards, allowing competitive play with as few as three tables.

Unlike Mitchell movements, pairs change directions at some tables. In a full Howell movement, all the pairs will play all the other pairs.

In terms of fairness and sociability, a Howell scores highly. However, the shortage of stationary pairs and the lack of flexibility about the number of boards played means that their use is relatively infrequent. Howell movements for 5 tables (9 3-board rounds) and 7 tables (13 2-board rounds) are the most popular.
