My Z-Man 2014 edition copy has 29 traders in each color. The rulebook and contents list here says 27 traders. Which is correct?

The player board holds 15 traders, 3 merchants.
The score marker is 1 trader.
The first player's stock is 5 traders and 1 merchant.
So is the first player's supply 6 traders as per the rules, or 8 traders per my copy?

Do I have too many traders (exactly 2 extra of each color?)

I cannot seem to find a reference to how many traders are in the first players supply.

(Yes, I know supply and stock varies by player, but for clarity I specified first player)

I also have several of the expansions. Did one of the expansions come with 2 extra pieces per player?

My 2010 Z-Man edition has 27 cubes and 4 discs in each player color, plus one black cube to mark the number of completed cities.

Neither expansion came with additional cubes.

Sterling, you seem to have two extra cubes. As John mentioned, neither expansion came with additional cubes. I have the Argentum Verlag 2009 edition which includes the following table in the rules showing the contents of each player's supply and stock to start the game:

| Supply | Stock
Startplayer | Merchant & 5 Traders | 6 Traders
Player 2 | Merchant & 6 Traders | 5 Traders
Player 3 | Merchant & 7 Traders | 4 Traders
Player 4 | Merchant & 8 Traders | 3 Traders
Player 5 | Merchant & 9 Traders | 2 Traders
