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 love to play again.

Everyone is being so analytical of the first vote, with little information to go on. Until a mission is finished we have little more then blind guessing going on. We will have to wait and see how things turn out on a mission to really know anything.

Umm... so saying your resistance is proof you aren't a spy. I dont understand why people state it. No one is going to say hi I am a spy. Haha. I am resistance though, no worries. I am just trying to follow everyone's logic. So many posts this game.

Thanks Bela. I tend to log in the wee hours of the night before a new sleuth day starts.

I try to keep track of when the 24hrs are up, and vote. Generally I have a little saboteur hanging around my neck trying to steal my attention, hence why I tend to play in the wee hours of the night.
Also, it seems like some people are trying to deflect attention from themselves. I am not naming any names *cough Ty, Sindy cough, cough* Sorry had to clear my throat.

Hmm. You are requesting the card be used on you. Is it in hopes that your spy partner will not be outed.
That would be a clever way of letting a spy partner know to vote sabotage, so you both aren't outed by voting sabotage. Hmm. Very clever indeed.

I think we should consider Sal's suggestion to change this game to "hunches" (just kidding).

Anyway, all reasons you gave is mostly based on your feeling, Bela (I think) and even you did not follow what you feel. I have to say I cannot get you. So forgive me for my vote, Bela.

This is the last thing I have to say about this team:

If we don't pass this team we will HAVE to accept whatever team is given us next round or Resistance will lose the game. With this team we will be able to determine, if the mission is sabotaged, WHO sabotaged the mission. Not so sure that will be true of the next team.

I think we still have one more chance, Sindy. If we disapprove 5 team in a row, we will lose. This is just the 3rd team :D

My thought was - I don't want to get to a 5th team.

Even though I am very curious as to why Sal and Ty voted "NO" for a team they were on, I am glad that this team went through so maybe those of us who are Resistance, can gather even a little more insight into which direction we should go. You all have done such a good job at talking through everything that I have absolutely zero idea who might be spies.

That leads me to when Ty said that it isn't the object of the game to figure out who the spies are. While technically I agree with you, looking at the big picture, it is critical to Resistance members to figure this out. Say it comes down to a 2-2 Resistance/Spies outcome going in to the 5th mission, we MUST know who the spies are in order to successfully put together the final team. Of course a spy would like Resistance members to not focus on figuring out who the spies are.....just saying.
