At the start of a game when you get to select five villagers you must:
1. make sure ALL five of them like "running"
2. all five must be "male"
3. Select four Villagers age 14 - 28
4. Select one child no older than 9
It is annoying to constantly have to click the reject button but in the end the results are worth it. Since they are REALLY quick at getting wood to build, I'm pretty sure nobody would want them to have to have to take some time off to nurse a baby.
After you have your villagers make the food bin out of the bamboo,
DO NOT take down the hungry totem yet. Once you dismantle that the
Two yellow mask Heathens will relocate to the Mausoleum. It's only at about 100% blockage but there are two blue mask Heathens that you got to annoy to get to work once you completely unblock it the heathens won't go over there. My PERSONAL advice, do NOT dismantle the knowing totem BEFORE the hungry totem.
