The Babylon Project was our last best hope for peace. It failed. In the year of the Shadow War, it became something greater, our last best hope for victory.

I was looking at the wooden gaming tokens by Fantasy Flight Games, but there is a discrepancy.

"These packs of 50 high quality wooden gaming tokens include a wide assortment of tokens available in red, blue, green, yellow, black, and white."

4 Cubes
4 Hexagonal Cylinders
4 Round Cylinders
4 small Disks
4 large Disks
6 Pawns (Meeples)
4 small Buildings
4 large Buildings
4 Ships
10 Rails/Roads

By my math, that is 48 pieces.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

FFG bad math, typographical error or life is too short?

But 50 is describing the "wooden tokens". Those last two aren't wooden.

The wood material for those is of such high quality that it doesn't exist yet. But...they'll send them out to you in Q5 free of charge.

This is the response I got from FFG:

Thanks for your message! According to the package itself, there are actually 6 small buildings, not 4. We just need to get that changed on the site, but that does amount to 50 pieces. Let us know if you need anything else!
