In scenario one it says Box L all four red diplomats. Box M French diplomats Talleyrand and Reinhard. Are these the wrong way around?
You are right! Due to a last minute change just before this game got published, the position of both boxes have been swapped. This is also the case for all other scenarios.
The official errata are on their way. Box "L" should be labeled "M" (and Box "M" should be labeled "L") on the Counter Tray Sheet.
