My copy of Netzwerk comes with a different number of sticks for each player. But the manual states 20 sticks for each player.

Is my copy missing sticks or later editions of Netzwerk come with fewer sticks?

Morisi comes with more sticks for two of the colors to support the two-player variant. Perhaps that's what you are seeing in Netzwerk.

The Netzwerk German manual states that each player should have 20 sticks. But there are 18 for White & Black and 15 for Grey & Brown.

Jumbo probably cut the number of sticks (to cut the costs down) after the manual was printed.

When I received my copy of Netzwerk, I had the same problem. I couldn't tell you now for sure, but it sounds as though your contents matched mine. I queried Jumbo via email regarding this, but never received a response. I also sent an email to Funagain, who promptly supplied me with the number of roads stated in the instructions. So, I have a set of components that matches the printed manifest.

At any rate, I would bet the statement above is likely right on.

Just got this from Ebay today. Same count of 18/18/15/15 for me.

Did anyone ever resolve why Jumbo reduced the number of sticks in the box and if either a) more sticks are available or b) different rules are available?

I should add that I recently obtained a mint condition copy of the game and I too have the 18/18/15/15 distribution of the black/white/grey/brown sticks.
