After years of anticipation, the Battery Boardwalk has finally opened its doors to the general public. The residents of Sleuthville come streaming in through the ticket booth--a line stretching as far as the eye can see. Among those gaining entry is a group of elite detectives with complimentary day passes to the attractions, invited specifically to keep an eye on things. A week prior to opening, the higher-ups at the Boardwalk had received anonymous threats of sabotage and murder if the Boardwalk was not torn down immediately. However, the proprietor was not one to submit to intimidation. Thus, on opening day, a group of highly-ranked detectives were tasked with keeping the park safe.

Unfortunately, there have been rumors floating around that some in the ranks of the elite had been approached by the mysterious threat-maker, and were now working for him to guarantee the day would end in disaster. It is said only those who turned to the dark side knew who the others were; everyone else had to eye each other with suspicion and make their own judgements. Although the team has been compromised, there is no time to vet and assemble another one on such short notice. Yet the day is young and there are plenty of opportunities to ensure opening day is a success.

The detectives’ job this fine day is to make the rounds of the park and keep an eye out for any suspicious or potentially dangerous activities. If opening day goes off without a hitch, the Boardwalk is sure to bring in millions, and the detectives would stand to receive a substantial cut for their services. But if it were to fail, then Sleuthville would be plunged into financial ruin and return to the days of never-ending guilty clients and exorbitant Shady fees. Oh no.

Will the Battery Boardwalk’s grand opening be an unparalleled success, or will it go down in flames accompanied by nothing but the screams of disappointed visitors? Stay tuned to find out in this installment of The Resistance.

There is not any way that Aspen will vote NO for this as she is a spy. Sal, you are on a mission with two spies. If either or both of them were Resistance, you or Bela would know they had lied about me because that would make one or both of you the spies.

The bottom line is this: If you are Resistance and you are NOT on this mission, you have to vote NO. It doesn't matter who you believe, at least one of the three is a spy.

I agree with your logic as you have stated things. How nice. :)

I'm just not sure I agree with all of the premises.

This has been enjoyable so far.

Sal, there is NO reason Zara and Aspen "are the same, whatever they are". I know you didn't state that as a fact, just as a feeling, but that's a very baseless assumption to make and stick to.

What I know so far is that:
there is ONE (no more, no less) spy between miss snopes and Aspen (because of mission 2 and their contradicting claims) and so the other spy is either Sal or Zara.
Also, at least one of Zara and miss snopes is a spy.

I don't know about anybody else's allegiance. This team has the potential to be spy-free, but I think I'll vote a little closer to the deadline because I want a little more time to think about everything. miss snopes, even if the Resistance members not on this team voted NO, if everybody on the team voted YES, that'd be a majority. There's something about your first paragraph that's bothering me too, I'll have to look at it later.

I think the team I'm leaning in favour of is a team of myself, Sal, and miss snopes, but I'm not 100% sure yet.

(Yeah, sorry, one last thing)

I think getting greedy and packing on two spies to the team will be the spies' downfall. :D

Bela you're a very bright young lady and your mastery over words is a great skill you possess. It's that latter that has me worried. You can make your theses sounds true, even when they aren't. In essence, you are very will suited to play this game. I know that my first paragraph about about this case being crystal clear is jumbled. It was a stream of consciousness statement. If I had thought to structure it better it would have been more effective, but I wanted to get it down before I forgot my points. I will give it another go, if you think that might help explain anything. I have already stated what I think everyone is based on a vote to approve a team a little earlier also, if that helps any. But I would be happy to rewrite that paragraph.

It would be illogical to put 2 spies on a team. Plus Miss Snopes is a spy. So that only leaves one other person.

Sal, I can agree with you on typing stuff out while you've still got it clear in your own head so that you don't forget it, but I'd still love to see that rewrite. I don't think you've outlined where you stand anywhere here yet (I might have missed it, I'll be re-reading the whole thing again anyway so I'll keep an eye out for it then), although you have congratulated us numerous times on being so very confusing (well, the newer Resistance players at least :P) - saying that you're not sure who's who in game of Resistance is not telling us where you stand, everybody (Resistance) started there!

I'll try to go through everything now and figure out what I'm trying to get across. If anybody else has any thoughts, please, add them.

Here's what I have said.

I believe that everyone has voted as their allegiance should indicate. I think that the Resistance has voted yes and the spies have voted no. We shall soon see.

You' have the time stamp, you'll have to go back to see the way people voted and you'll know what I think.

I'll use my card to take STRONG LEADER. I won't be using STRONG LEADER now.
