    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 ?
