Does the icon mean

Have 6 assistants?

Or have 5 assistants + your starting worker?

I initially took it to be assistants but the icon is the main worker icon. I kept getting 5 new assistants and counting it as a loss, but then I looked closer and wonder f those were actually wins?

Like Grzegorz said, it is 6 assistants.

Try to build cheap buildings only like Mill, Brick Manufacture, Sawmill and put the assistants you bought in them and ignore to make a huge chain.

Other good buildings are Cattle Ranch and Weaving Mill if you have one of the cheapest (less than 6 coins) in your hand to help to with the income.

Do not try to build every turn, having 6 buildings, including the charburner is enough to generate the economy to buy 6 or more assistants.

Good luck!

Thanks for the responses, so I was right in the first place!

I managed to get to the 6 assistants last night in my last player, after posting here. And yes, it took some luck on getting the right cheap buildings in the right order - and then getting lucky enough with some decent market flips to produce enough to buy more assistants.

Really enjoying it.
