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.

Sindy, I'm going to have to disagree where you said "Yes, it's true power cards can be used effectively by the spies and the resistance, but if you have two people confirming one person's allegiance you can be pretty sure about that person's allegiance." That only works if the two people confirming are BOTH Resistance. In the last Resistance game, I was Resistance whereas Zara and Aspen were Spies. They each stated that powers revealed to them (in PMs) that I was a spy. So 2 people revealing something about a person means nothing to me unless I am 100% certain the 2 people revealing the info are Resistance.

Sorry, you'll have to wait. I had just put out my thoughts for shell and Sleuth ate it as I clicked post reply and I was booted off the website and had to log back on. I think I had made my reply clear and will try to recreate it, but I need some time and luck, luck in not having Sleuth make my reply disappear again.

shell, what I actually said was everything I have done has supported the Resistance. I believe that's true. I voted SUCCEED on a SABOTAGED mission. I used the IN THE SPOTLIGHT on myself in response to requests to do so by other players, not my own volition. I likewise used KEEPING AN EYE ON YOU and told the truth about your vote, didn't I? I think a spy probably would have said you voted SABOTAGE to muddy the waters. But again, that was done in response to requests from other players. I would have preferred to hold those powers until their usefulness was greater, later in the game.


I have tried to use that same logic to point out some points that I felt were confusing and even contradictory, to try to clear them up for everyone to see. You say I haven't given you much to go by. I disagree. I have done everything to accommodate what has been asked of me and done it openly and truthfully.

@ Miss Snopes

What happened in your case would be low adds - but that certainly doesn't mean it can't happen. However, in the end they figured it out. After a while all those clues eventually add up - hopefully. :D

The spies are doing a very good job in this game - which makes it so much more interesting.

This is only the 2nd time I've played and because the spies falsely accused me right out of the gate the first time I've played, this is actually the first time where I haven't known anyone's allegiances. It's much harder this way. :)

@ Snopes 2 people revealing the same thing that they learned through pm does tell you alot.
It links them together. That is how I figured out the last game. There were only so many scenarios that would work. And I wasn't playing in that game, so I didn't have even the option of knowing I was Resistance to help eleminate one person.

@ Sal, yes you did reveal I voted succeed, but the reality is, I'm the only one who is 100% sure you are telling the truth. Because it doesn't say you have to tell the truth. As far as the others are concerned, you could be a spy who voted succeed while in the spotlight to make you look resistance. Then the other spy votes sabatoge and you use keeping an eye on them ( which would be me in this example) and then post that I also voted to succeed. Putting suspicion on Bela and Ty. Basically muddying the waters. Don't worry if you truly are resistance, I'm sure you will point me in the right direction. But worry if you are a spy, I won't let you fool me easily.

Sorry all. RL has been taxing. There are lots of posts I haven't had the ability read yet. I am unsure of team chosen at the moment though.
