If you're playing multiple Villages, keep a careful count of your Actions. Say how many you have left out loud; this trick works every time.

The Secret History of Village[]

In an article on Board Game Geek, Donald X. Vaccarino commented on the development of Village:

This got better and better during the very early days of the game. One of my friends always went for Village and could not win a game. So over the first few weeks I gradually improved it to its current level. It's cool to see people arguing about whether it's too good or not and well I guess to keep that interesting I should avoid commenting myself. *whistles*[1]
