So what's the point of the contagious villager? Why would they willingly handout those contagious cards? It seems to me they would just only hand out safe cards first before handing out the contagious cards. Is it just a way to divert attention away from the plague doctor after a few rounds?

The idea is that they provide a bit of cover for the plague doctor, as they might have to hand them out and people wouldn't exactly know who did it (except the person infected by the CV).

We still found things too chaotic in our couple of plays of the game. Wanted to like this one, but even these other roles coudldn't really fix the game's over-arching problems.

Hi AJ. We just played with the Contagious Villager, and it worked out well. We gave the Contagious Villager only 3 Safe cards, plus the 4 Contagious cards, plus the Silent Villager card and 2 roll dice cards. So by the time you are in Round 3, (passed 2 cards in Round 1), the Contagious Villager is harming others with Contagious Villager cards or Roll Dice cards.

Ok, next time we play with Contagious Villager, I'll try less Safe cards. Thanks!
