1. Determine the cards to add to your hand and to Automa’s hand before each voyage by revealing the topmost 6 cards from the solo deck, making certain to orient them as Automa cards (purple flag at the top left). Remember to take the corresponding cards from your deck.
2. Add the 6 cards to Automa’s hand. Her hand should always be organized as a face-up horizontal row, which is sorted left to right in increasing rank.
3. Give Automa the correct number of doubloons based on her reputation.
Designers’ Tip: We suggest that you don’t spend time studying Automa’s character abilities in your first plays. In most cases, they are similar to the ones on your cards.
