    You should count them. Of course systematically. Start by choosing one team.

    Here is the idea. Let say you have 4 teams instead of 10 and they are team A,B,C,D Team A played: 2,2,2 times with B,C,D Team B played: 2,2 times with C, D (the game with A is already counted above) Team C played : 2 times with D So in total there were 6+4+2 = 12 games
