Hello everyone. It's been some time since we've had a game of Resistance, so I'll be hosting one (without story) for everyone to enjoy. If you've never played before, feel free to jump right into the world of uncertainty and lies. I promise lots of fun. :)

The game takes place over a series of 5 "missions." The Resistance is trying to complete 3 missions successfully, while the spies are attempting to sabotage 3 missions. First one to 3 wins.

I will serve as game master. Once we get enough people to play (5-10 total), I will PM everyone their allegiance (either "Resistance" or "Spy"). If you are a "Spy," I will also PM you the names of your co-conspirators.

A "leader" will be chosen at random for the first mission. The leader has 2 important functions:
1) The leader will assign various "role" abilities to players. These are one-shot special powers a player can use to learn more information about someone.
2) The leader will assign players to the "team" for that mission.

Missions will have a varying number of players who are selected; the leader picks a team, then every player will vote on whether or not they approve the team by PMing me. Once all the votes are cast, I will post the voting results. If a majority approves the team, the mission starts. If not, the mission does not start, and the next player in line becomes the new "leader" for that round. This continues until either a mission is approved, or 5 consecutive mission teams are rejected (in which case the spies win automatically.)

Once a mission team is approved, those players will PM me their choice of action during that mission. Resistance players will ALWAYS choose to have the mission succeed by sending "Success," while spies have a choice: they can either elect to have the mission succeed (to throw off suspicion), or they can "Sabotage" the mission.

Obviously I'm very far down the list, and if my turn comes it won't be early in the game anymore, but if I were the first leader, I would do exactly that: pick myself and the following two leaders to try to gather more information about them.

Then if the mission is successful, we could repeat the same people on the team, hoping that they're all Resistance. And if it is not, we would have gathered more information about who in that team could be a spy.

Aah, so much talk whether my words are trust worthy or not I don't know what to say! It's interesting being in a position where one's "attacker" is arguing that you're trustworthy whilst one's "defenders" are arguing the opposite. However, I would like to clear one thing up.

Lou, I'm getting the impression you're unaware there's two votes to be had before a mission is passed or failed. I'm sorry if I've misunderstood your post, but I don't want anyone to have the wrong end of the stick.

Being a spy I can vote YES now, and assuming enough others vote YES, THEN it'll go through to the second vote, and it's in this second vote that I can vote SABOTAGE instead of SUCCESS, and bring the mission down. So enough people voting YES now is no guarantee the mission will succeed.

Ah-hem... I wasn't actually defending you, per se, Yeti. I was more defending Devi and her reasoning behind her choice of teammates.

Lou, right now we are voting on whether the team will go on the mission.

If they don't go, nobody wins.

If they do, one of the members of the team can Sabotage, and the spies win.

If they are all Resistance, or all vote Success, the Resistance wins.

If enough people vote for the team not to go on the mission, leadership will move down to the next player on the list, who is Bela.

Sindy, I would very much like to see those games that you mentioned earlier.

In this game, Yeti claims to be a spy by Page 2 of the thread:

He says he must be a spy because he is sure Molly is a spy and they are both selfish, so he must be one also.

There's no Molly in game and no banter either.
