Does it count as sitting next to the same 2 neighbours if you only sit next to one of the two?

And I suppose they drink whine through their noses as well.

there should be 42 combinations. or 14 is that right? Is it to do with binomial expansion or exponential?

Nothing to do with binomial, sequences actually- I think. There are thousands of combinations.

It's simple just kill them all of until only 1 survives.
Kind of like a cross between battle royale and come dine with me?

I think:

On the first day have ABCDEFG going around the table, then cycle ADE to give 2 more. Then BEF, CFG, DGA, EAB, FBC and GCD, each gives 2 new combinations (excluding the orginal order from each rotation). This give 7*2+1=15 seatings.
