As a TD it's easier for me at crunch time to shuffle individual cards vs filling out new ones.
The three player rule is a good one if you know ahead of time.
the ultimate screw is after you send out groups you find out someone is either late or not coming at all. Two part Scoreboard solves late issue. "Here is where they started this long ago"
Solution 1 depending on how many are in the group behind them the short group might wait and pick up another from that group. On course solutions are always my first choice.
Solution 2 Another is have dropping player inform TD on their way out. Nothing is stopping the short group from allowing others through till the TD can sort it out.
