**Reiny**, Friday, February 1, 2013 at 7:53pmYou wording is confusing me.

You say, 3 people are chosen at random, then each is given a gift card

What group are the 3 people chosen from ?

You say, "The first person selected will get to choose between the two remaining cards" . What happened to the first card?

Then, "The third person selected gets the third card

What happened to the second person?

Would it just be:

the first person gets to pick a card

the second person get to pick a card

the third person gets the remaining card ?
