My game contains 8 Upgrade Tokens which, according to page 5 of the rulebook, should be enough.
But according to the game setup (rulebook page 8/9) you need 9 Upgrade Tokens (Hospital:1, Water Treatment:2, Educational center:1, Laboratory:2, Greenhouse:3).

Is this an error in the setup explained in the rulebook or should there be 9 Upgrade Tokens instead of 8?

I just came to the same conclusion.

There are 8 upgrade tokens but 9 spaces where they should go - the overview image even shows 9 tokens.

There are also 8 Unavailable tokens but even with 2 players you only need 7 - should one of them maybe a upgrade token?

Same here, we placed the first one unlocked in the empty space.

Just noticed the same myself. I think in our demo game you could build in the first space right from the start, but I thought this made it too easy.

The solo game is brutal.

The prototype rulebook linked on the KS page, only shows 8 tokens in the picture (Greenhouse only has two). So, since the picture in the actual rulebook is different, this must have been some last-minute change, and therefore it seems 1 token is missing.

Bye

Yesterday I played my first solo, and just put an unavailability token in the right-most spot of the greenhouse. I guess this is a good solution for 1-2 players as there's no need for more than 2 spaces.

According to an email that REDIMP sent out today, the left-most spot on the Greenhouses should be empty. So, only two upgrade tokens are required for the Greenhouses. The rulebook is in error.

During the game preparation we do not place the upgrade token on the first action field from the left in the Greenhouses. That spot remains empty, and the upgrade tokens are placed only on the second and third field.
