That's what I would have imagined, but I didn't think it's the case. See my comment below, though!
Eririn - maybe :p
if all three of you guys had different picks then this is impossible, but if 2 or 3 of you had the same first pick then it is just unlucky..
Wrong - all three of us had different picks, and it happened...
I think I've worked it out though..
A & X put territory i as their #1 and j as their #2
B & Y put k as their #1 and l as their #2
C & Z put m & n.
So, A gets first pick, and gets i. X gets second pick, and can't get i, so gets j instead. Then B gets his pick, which is k, and when Y picks next, they can't get k, so get l. Similarly, C gets M and Z gets N.
That, surely, has to be what happened! IMO, this is silly - picks should alternate by team - it should be AXYBCZ, or a variant thereof.
