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.

Sal, I have been solidly Resistance the whole game. You may be wary of what I say, and sure, I can say one thing and do another. But my actions, my votes, at every point has been Resistance because I am Resistance.

Sal, I have been solidly Resistance the whole game. You may be wary of what I say, and sure, I *can* say one thing and do another. However, my actions, my votes, this entire game have been firmly Resistance. I'm not comfortable sending a random team first thing every mission, so I vote NO. I don't trust teams all that easily, especially not the very first proposals.

I'd like to end the game with this mission being the Resistance's third win. I think the team we should go with now is a team of miss snopes, Sal, and Bela. I'd posted what I knew yesterday, and if I had to form a team, I'd have to pick between you and Zara, and Aspen and snopes. I don't have much at all to go on with that pick, but I think it's our best bet for now. I know you think Aspen is more likely to be Resistance because your mission with her was a success, and I shouldn't be pointing fingers when Mission 1 was the same with us, but like you said yourself, that is a great way for a spy to remain hidden and appear trustworthy. I don't know why you lot think I might be a spy; when I'm a spy, I sabotage everything, every chance I get! I know that's not the best thing to say when I'm trying to get on a team, but I'm very serious about that. I'll remind you Sal, to have some faith (and I really really hope you're not pulling a long con!) :D

Oh, the first portion of my speech was posted on its own. So that's why it switched to a different page.

Bela - up until now I've had a strong conviction that you are probably Resistance, even though I couldn't put my finger on why exactly. I've also had some suspicions that Sal could be a spy. However, this ongoing back-and-forth with Sal now looks like a spy trying to convince a Resistance member that she is 'innocent'.

I know you are all lovely people in real life. But in terms of this game I'm giving my response to people's actions so far.

And Sal, I agree with you wholeheartedly on this game being played very well so far : )

If that were the case, Zara, I would play STRONG LEADER, skip Sal's turn, and in case my proposal were rejected, my fellow spy (according to you) miss snopes would eventually be the fifth leader, forcing everybody to approve her proposal no matter what.

Also you all really don't need to qualify all your accusations with "I'm sure you're actually good, but here you're a spy!", it's a game of Resistance, nobody's going to take the accusations personally. :D

(Sorry, that was me logged into Shireen. I'll pull a snopes and say it again as myself. :P)

I hear you but don't agree that your 'logic' is the obvious path that anyone who is Resitance would take. Your decision not to play the STRONG LEADER card now could be pure tactics. You are putting a lot of effort into trying to convince Sal (in particular) that you are NOT a spy. And Sal is the next leader ....

If you are a spy and you can convince Sal to have either you or ms snopes (or both) on his team then the spies can score a SABOTAGE - thus making the scoreline 2 apiece for the Spies and Resistance. It would all come down to the wire on the final mission. And you'd still have your STRONG LEADER card to play : )

Glad to know you're not taking it personally, lol.
