Breaking out my counters and sorting into a counter tray I found that I have 2-Italian XXIV corps counters. I assume this is a mistake. What was the 2nd XXIV counter supposed to be? There are two gaps/numbers omitted in the Italian corps, XV and XVII. Was the 2nd XXIV supposed to be one of those numbers?

I just went through my Italian counters and I also have an extra XXIV Corps, but after looking over the Italian setup on the 1914 mobilization setup and the Italian reinforcements, it looks to be just an extra counter. I'm setting up to give the game a go and I've already found a few mistakes. I might be missing 6 German reserve scu's, one space is referenced with the wrong coordinates on the setup sheet, and another space appears to be misnamed on the setup sheet. It's demoralizing to find this many mistakes when I've barely gotten into the game.

Osowiec which is supposed to be in D7, I cannot find it on the map, so I assumed it is Olita, which is the space below Kovno on my map.

Also, there appears to be a misprint on the Mobilization Setup card. 5 GE Reserve SCUs should start the game in the Reserve Box.

Thank you again for the clarification. I know a lot of work goes into these games and I appreciate what you guys do.

The second IT XXIV Inf. Corps appears to be an extra. No IT LCUs are missing. So, it's a spare in case you need one.

Is there a reason why this mistake was made?

I googled Osowiec and it's a castle in Poland.
I can only find Olita on old maps of Europe.

There was a WW1 fortress in the area that Poles call Osowiec and Russians called Olita.
