Some sets had the company credits and player money confused, with some early sets having 5,000 in company credits and only 2,600 in player money. When this was identified the amount of player money was increased to 4,000, and later to 5,000. 
A Unit 1 fixing kit was available that provided an additional 2,600 player money as well as five more tiles.

The certificate limits shown here for games involving Unit 3 are different to those on the Unit 3 inventoy page. These figures are from the Unit 1 rule book. The figures on the Unit 3 page are from the rule book for that game. Make your own choice on which figures to use. Bear in mind that the Unit 3 rule book is the most recent and could therefore be considered to be more appropriate.
