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 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.

Nice words, miss snopes

I would say it's a gender accusation. Am I right? I understand that figure out who the spies are is very important. What I said is the MAIN GOAL is to win 3 missions. And please put that quote in the situation I said it. It's when we got a successful mission which we should stick with to build our plan to, again, WIN 3 MISSIONS. But some body tried to change the team to FIND A SPY. And that's why I made a reaction to that work. Do you see my point?

Maybe I am not good at language to express my thought. I think some people here might get what I mean, however.

One more thing I wanna say to you, miss snopes: I think you are not following us on what we said. My idea why I said No to this team is very clear, I think. And you just keep saying you don't know why I said No on a team I am in. And I think it's not the only time you say that to people opinion. I have to say that you are not focusing well on the trace OR you are trying to distract people?

I modified the M1 team because I think the team I proposed is more likely to be all-Res than the M1 team + me. Why I think that is because yet again Sindy strikes me as a spy. So I've swapped her out for shell. So I really am going for another Resistance win by changing things up, rather than trying to figure out who the spies are by experimenting with a potentially-spy-containing team.

Sal, could you use SPOTLIGHT on yourself? You were anxious to before.

Okay mr. Announcer I would like to use IN THE SPOTLIGHT on Sal Iva. Since I have already sent you my vote, do you just make it public or should I post it here?
