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.

Zara, I didn't believe without strong reason. Please read all of my post since I used NO CONFIDENCE. I made a very long analysis there. So please let me know: You don't see that the analysis I made logical? Or what else you are thinking? I cannot get what is going on with your thought, Zara.

By the way, and you still don't want to let me know why you strongly believe miss snopes? Why?

I am here and working all the way back through everything carefully. I will have a team posted later tonight.

Good luck with your team selection :)

Ty - this will have to be my last reply to you on this topic. We have already moved on to another team selection and I feel that any comments/advice re spies/resistance would be best directed towards this. However, to answer your first question - yes, I have read all of your posts since you used the NO CONFIDENCE card. I understand your viewpoint. I disagree with it. I have explained why twice. I don’t think that people in general have a problem in regard to understanding - albeit they may well disagree.

In regard to your other question: as far as I’m aware I’ve never said that I “strongly believe” miss snopes. Where did you see this? In selecting my team I stated: “The players that I currently have most confidence in as being RESISTANCE are: miss snopes and shell marple.” (post made on Jul-17-2017 02:39). That’s a snapshot picture of where my thoughts lay at that time - based on the posts, arguments and general conduct on this thread. This is very different to what you’re claiming was said.

Anyhow that’s the end of this topic for me. I look forward to hearing people’s thoughts on the next team selection.

I have spent so much time on this today that my brain is scrambled.

I would like to propose a Mission 3 team of:

Ty
Aspen
Zara
Missy

After spending all day reading and re-reading, I feel the most secure about these 4 being Resistance. Now, I'm going to bed!

I know I said I'd say more once I sorted it out, but having reread everything I'm feeling confused.

As for your team Missy, I'm not sure. I'm going to sleep on it.

*drops a pin*
Yep I heard it. It is so very quiet around here. I think I know how I'm going to vote, it should be a yes unless someone can convince me otherwise. I'm not really fond of this team, but I'm getting to the point of something, anything, is better than nothing.

I would really like to hear Aspen's opinion of this team. Also maybe Sal could weigh in on some thoughts he has about the game so far. Also Bela, did you ever figure anything out concerning the use of the power cards?

I'm going to assume Ty will vote no for this team, seeing how he believes Zara to be a spy, and he used no confidence on my team, rejected Zara's for the very same reason. He suspects a spy.

Well, I’ve been waiting to hear some other thoughts on this team selection but - as you say shell - it has been very quiet.

I am thoroughly confused about this team. I *think* I have worked out why miss snopes has chosen these four players (i.e why she feels secure) but I’m not wholly convinced. I’d like her to share some of her thoughts with us.

I’m more confused about the allegiance of both Ty and Aspen than ever. In particular, it’s been a while since Aspen has posted here - and I noticed she hasn’t been online since 17 July. I hope everything is okay with you Aspen. It would be good to hear your thoughts : )

Shell, I'm not sure if you're telling Ty to vote no and he is aware of the fact or if you're hoping for the power of persuasion to get him to vote no OR maybe you're trying to use reverse psychology on him so he does vote yes. I'm not really looking for an answer to this but felt it important enough to mention.
