Hey. I just finished punching the game and there's two start player tokens. The rules say I should have only one. Is the other used for something else?

I guessed it was a spare. Likewise I have one extra citizen token that isn't used (once placing all there are two left over, rather than just the one as the rules say there should be).

Yes, if you play with Kellyanne Conway, she gets the alternative start player token.

Yeah, I have a spare as well. The extra citizen had me convinced that I was missing a citizen space somewhere in the game for the first 3 plays or so.

The citizen is actually awarded to the player who built the most trade stations.

The start player marker is legitimately spare. (Using the same die lines is cheaper than having it not be cut out).

But even putting a citizen on the map, I still have one left over.

Yes, the TMG version came with an extra start player marker and an additional citizen as well as some extra coins if I remember rightly.

I don't know if the DLP version had any of this as mine is TMG. My assumption is as suggested above; that it's due to using the same template for the punch boards. Some games come with blank tiles in this instance, but it's nice that these have been printed properly so will function as spares if others get lost or damaged.

Not many things which I read online make me actually laugh out loud.
I had to take a few seconds while my wife asked me what was so funny.
