What happens when I run out of cards?
(STANDARD RULES EDIT v1.2- change made May, 2015: The description below will differ from the First Edition v1.0 rulebook) When a player is supposed to draw a card and there are no cards in their personal deck, that player will flip over cards from the Shop Deck (make sure it is shuffled) until there is five face up cards in a row: this is called the SHOP. There may already be some cards in the shop, in that case just fill the open slots. The player must now select their card
Resolving an Action
Most Actions are resolved the moment they are played, and will be discarded shortly after they are announced. Action cards that effect combat like Epico Bean and Ultimate Blast will remain face up during the die rolls and then will be discarded afterwards. Actions that draw cards, like Dead Limb Disco or Commaback will normal resolve quickly, but can take longer if the players runs out of cards and the Shop must open.

What constitutes as an Active Limb?
An active limb is any head, left arm, right arm or legs that have not been blown off. A Malfunctioned limb, Level 0 base armor or a limb with a Construction Pod are all still considered active limbs. Shoulder armors are add-ons and are not considered active limbs.
How can I regenerate limbs?
In the base set of PBL ROBOTS a player can only regenerate a limb by using: Regeneration Pod (ARMOR) Scales of Regeneration (ARMOR) Bethany Lee (CREW) Tataya Park (EXPERT PILOT)
How can I get rid of an Expert Pilot?
An active Expert Pilot can only be removed by using the action card Gamblers of Pioria or crew member Unknown, or by being replaced by another expert pilot. Destroyer Sky is the only exception, as she is the only Expert Pilot who removes herself at the beginning of any turn in which the attack counters are exhausted.
Getting Shero with Smitty Lesson
If a player has Smitty Lesson as an active crew member and is in critical form (only one active limb remaining), that player may discard Smitty Lesson on their turn to search their deck or hand for Shero and immediately put him into your robot. If Shero is not in hand, nor in the deck, shuffle the deck and Smitty Lesson remains discarded. Shero can attack the turn he is put into the cockpit as long as no other moves have been made.
