Hello everyone. I’ll be hosting another game of Resistance, and I encourage all lurkers from the previous game(s) to come out and play! We’ll keep it simple with just gameplay and no story this time. And if you’ve never played before, feel free to jump right in, because we all need more imaginary problems to worry about. :)

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.

I would say you made a sound-like-good reason, Sindy.

But look, the 1st team was also approved by Zara and shell and you just put your suspicion on AspenK. I would view it as an intentional "suspicion". And you know what, while reading your argument, I found this "possibly because you're both spies and he didn't want two spies on one mission". Let's see:

+) The 1st team Sal, sindy, AspenK ---> sindy say No
+) The second team: Ty, sindy, AspenK ---> sindy say No
+) Sindy suspects AspenK --> She has reason to not pick AspenK on the next team when she becomes the team leader

And "possibly because you're both spies and he didn't want two spies on one mission"

Does that make any sense? I can only say that you made a good reason but that reason, ironically, is against you.

anyway people approved the 1st mission which might be my bad to pick this team. But at least we see your thought, Sindy. We all will see what happens with this mission and then, the very next team pick.

In answer to your question shell, I'm going to copy and paste what Sindy said earlier today because it was the exact reason I voted NO this time:

"Why did I vote no? Because Sal skipped over you (Ty) - possibly because you're both spies and he didn't want two spies on one mission. Aspen K for whatever reason was very supportive of the team Sal proposed - possibly another spy?"

Now it could very well be that Sal did skip Ty for the reason he said and AspenK could have been so supportive of Sal's proposed team for the reason she said also but for now, I'm going to be suspect of every single comment, action or lack thereof.

And my 3rd reason was because Sindy voted NO to Sal's proposed team (which she was on) so it made me think she knew and/or suspected something or was wanting to hide something & since the 2nd proposed team had 2 of the original 3 members on it (including her), I decided those 3 things were enough to make me vote NO this time.

Actually, I didn't think I was suggesting a division. I was merely stating how I look at and approach the game, just as several others have ALREADY done.

Sal, I was slapping myself on the wrist - not anyone else. :)

Honestly, my number one reason, Sal, for thinking you might possibly be a spy is because having read all of the Resistance threads, I don't remember you ever being a spy - so I'm thinking surely you *must* be a spy eventually, right? The odds have got be toppling over on the side of your turn as a spy coming round. :D

Ty - you have made a very good case for both Sindy and Aspen possibly being spies. I still think that this first mission will pass with three SUCCEED votes. But I'll be very interested to see what happens next ; )

And thanks Bela for explaining about voting on the mission team proposals. I hadn't realised that the five options to vote NO were reset with each mission. I'd thought we just had five for the entire game.

Sindy, I am sorry if I misunderstood. But you didn't read back far enough. I was a spy the first time I played this game. I don't remember who all the players were, but Yeti was definitely in that game.

Mission 2:

Mission 2 will consist of FOUR team members.

Sindy, the team leader, has been given two advantages to distribute to whomever she sees fit. They are:

KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON YOU: Receiver of this card may look at one team member's action (Success/Sabotage) on a mission they are on, after the results of the mission are in.

NO CONFIDENCE: Receiver of this card can veto a successful vote on a mission proposal, causing it to fail and forcing leadership to move to the next player on the list.

Sindy, please assign these abilities when you're ready, and then propose a team. Keeping one ability for yourself is acceptable.
