I love this game... randomly seeding the resources into the action spaces makes each round's action valuation a bit different each time, which makes each game flow a bit differently... you must try and get points in all areas and lead in points in at least one area to win... love the flow of the game, timing new workers, actions and dying workers together is everything... can't wait for expansions to increase the options even further!

Nice eurogame mechanics and original theme. I play Village everytime I can. It's the most tense game I know and the pleasure of playing it is always a 10.

Simply, Amazing. Great game, with a pitch perfect theme. If you want a game that uses it's theme NOT as a gimmick/throw in. Look no farther then "Village". Amazing.

I'm not saying I invented the turtleneck. But I was the first person to realize its potential as a tactical garment.

This may well be my favorite Eurogame. I love the blend and variety of planning ahead, worker placement, and resource management. The game also has a really philosophical theme with great aesthetics. And you never know who is going to win until the very end! Brilliant.

One of the best (if not the best) Eurogames I've ever played.
Great theme and feel of the game, with a great deal of strategy.

This is a worker placement game with a twist, eventually your workers (or "family members" as they are called in the rules) will die, which at first made me little sad when I lost some of my workers early in the game. But late in the game (a bit too late in fact) I realized that it can be desireable to have your workers die off early in the game to get them into the village chronicle before the other players (a bit morbid I know, but there is lots of easy points to be obtained that way).

This is an awesome euro game. Many paths to victory, lots going on, and the meeple death is really cool. I love it - very charming game and a great design that was well tested and all works together perfectly.

Great game with an interesting mechanic.
Lots of strategies, but you need to do a bit of everything.
I like the way how collecting resources and taking actions is connected.
Some things may seem a bit illogical, but hey, it's a game.
The board looks great and the components are nice.
Fairly easy to teach. Takes some time because of the possibilities, but after the first round (round - not game) everybody knows whats going on.
I've played with 2 and 4 so far, works well either way, it gets much tighter with 4.

This ended up being much different than what I expected. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of choices and their sometimes dire consequences for my meeples!

One of my groups' favorite worker placement games. The theme can feel a little dry at times, but I really like the time mechanism and planning each generation of workers.

I am so impressed with this game! Excellent scalability.

Update 7/20/14: Played this game with 4 today. Previously, we had only played this with 2, and it is EXCELLENT with 2. Of course, it's even better with 4. What a great game. We played with 2 muggles and the Village totally clicked for both of them by the end of the first round, maybe before. On the surface, this is not a gateway game, as its weight and variety of options can be quite daunting for a non-gamer. Interestingly though, it's that same variety that offers new players a good deal of options for strategic planning. You can literally just pick any part of the game, exploit it to the best of your ability, and still feel like your doing well. Plus, the game is not that "tight," even with 4. I felt like I got to do pretty much whatever I wanted. This looseness, if you will, opens the game up and eases the stress for non-gamers. Fantastic game. Can't say enough about how good it is. I never thought it could be a gateway, but I was wrong!

Raised from 8 to 10 when played with first expansion ...I expect to raise to 11 with the port expansion which looks even better than the first expansion if possible

Add the expansions and this works well with 2-4. One of my top 10 no doubt.
