Hi everyone,
last night i was playing village with my gaming group: i love it so much, play it almost once per week and, until yesterday, never had a problem with the rules. Now, i have a doubt: what happens if i have to kill a member of my family and the oldest one is still inside the black bag (because he's not being introduced into church yet)? And then: where do i have to bury him? He's not inside the church yet...
here's what i think:
1) I guess that, in that situation, it's the one who's still inside the bag to die... the rules say you have to kill the oldest ones.
2) I guess that he should be buried in the graveyard near the church..

let me know what your thoughts are,
thanks in advance,
regards,
Pablo

From the rules:

A dying family member must be visible at the time of his death. This means that he must be either on the game board or on your farmyard. Family members still in the black bag cannot die, nor can ones that have not yet entered play.)

This is no cheating!

The collection box (black bag) is under the hand of god!

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

IIRC it's not in all versions of the rules for some reason.

umm, you can't cheat death.
you still have to kill someone. it has to be your oldest visible family member.
so, if you have a year 1 guy in the church bag, and a year 2 guy in the Council, your year 2 guy will die.

If you've a very good timing (especially at the beginning of the game) it is possible that no one dies.
Try to start like this: consume a lot of time, let 1 member die and trigger the second death by going to the black bag with your third member in the bag.

Remark: very strange in this game: marriage and getting children still works with no family members on the board... all under the hand of god devildevil
