I know you can't get resources when the stack runs out but I just played a 5-player game and we ran out of 5s in the middle of Act IV. We weren't sure what to do on the space that lets you trade in any card for a 5 or the job that gives you a 5 as a reward. Do you take a 3 (the next highest denomination that had cards left), take a 3 and a 2, or do you not get any benefit at all?
You take a 3... the next highest down. Always take a single card of next highest down if the one you are to take is not available.
Also, for the ally that lets you shakedown the front of a business three times, does the person who owns that territory get that benefit three times as well? Thanks.
They do get the benefit
