Stick 'em up!
The rules are pretty clear that a player must pass if he doesn't have enough money to recruit. But must a player pass when all 8 of his row slots have Crooks in them?
A player doesn't have to pass just because he's sent a crook to each target.
What if he knows for certain that a particular Hangout has an Accomplice in it, and he has enough money to recruit from that Hangout? Is he forced to pass even though he has this legal play available?
He can still explore any hangout he can afford and recruit a crook from it. Normally, you must send the crook you recruit to a target, but in this rare situation if you recruit a crook that you can't send to any target - that is, if you didn't recruit an accomplice - just return the crook to the box instead and end your turn.
