You 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 ?
