The way to get around this problem is to have one person sit in the same seat for the entire process, while everyone else shifts one seat over and ropes around the tables. I decided option c would be the least awkward and identified the trio spots by placing little stars at the seat. Everyone still moved over one seat each round like usual, but they occasionally found themselves in a trio instead of one-on-one.
