Hey There...I have a question about the cardiovascular exercise.....If you pick up your robot at any time during the game, will points be taken off from the cardiovascular wheel at any time or each time?

Also.....The rules state that the robot must go back to base after each click...does that mean that you can't set the robot to turn continuously while at the wheel?

Lastly....once thew robot picks up the medicine and takes it back to base...are kids allowed to take the medicine from the robot or does the robot have to drop it into base?

Thanks a lot...I hope you guys can help....

Quick question. In the bowling, where does the bowling ball begin the mission, in base or on the bowling lane?
