Hello,

as far as I understand, the order tiles are used to determine the first player for the next round, and the order in which players buy assistants.

But why does the order of buying assistants matter? There are enough assistants so that each player can get 1 every round so they won't run out, and beyond this I can't think of any reason. Am I missing some rule?

So, are order tiles 2--4 only meaningful in the last round, when they also give victory points?

I've only played once, but a very fun game so far!

Iavor

Answering my own question, at least in part: I just saw that the turn order tiles are also used to resolve ties during the military phase, so that makes them more useful.

I still can't think of a reason for the order of buying assistants though.

You can use glory instead of money to buy assistants, and the order of spending glory can matter a lot since it is assessed after assistants are purchased.
