Help creating pseudo-randomized groups

Hi everyone

I'm not used to using forums and have probably entered this in the wrong place as well but I really hope you can help with this, and I'll try my best to explain my scenario.

I am planning an activity where there are groups of 3 people and in each group there are 3 different roles (a,b and c). I need to allocate groups so that each person has an equal number of turns in each role and where the groups are regularly changed so that there is as little repetition as possible.

eg. In a set of 12 people, the first round is person 1 is a, 2 is b and 3 is c as a group and then person 4 is a, 5 is b and 6 is c in another group. In the next round I would then look for people to have different groups and different roles as well if possible.

Just to make it a little more difficult (for me at least) I then need to be able to do this for different set sizes (8,9,10,11).

Is anyone able to help me figure out a way of doing this.


Thanks everyone
