/worldborder set <the starting size>
/worldborder set <the final size> <duration of time it will shrink to that size>
/spreadplayers <x> <z> <minimum spread distance> <maximum spread distance> true <list of players>
It could work for team play or every-man-for-himself style. I'd also punch up a bunch of /scoreboard commands to get some rankings up.
