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.

Your cat is probably wondering why you didn't pad the chair for it a long time ago.

I have a feeling this team might be a spy riddled team, but I'm going to vote Yes. I'm curious as to what will happen. I think this team can tell us alot.

Also just to let you all know, it appears I am going to be chaperoning my daughters band camp this year. I will be in an area that has bad reception. I will be leaving August 6 and will be back on the 11th.

Ty - I'm going to post back later today with more detailed thoughts on this team. Unlike shell I feel that this team won't enlighten us, but may well muddy the waters even further.

@ Miss Snopes - you're so right about the cat, Missy - yeah, it's about time you fixed him a proper spot, Plebe (meaning Sal)! :)

Now, to serious stuff. About Sal's proposed team...

It has three people that are highest on my "most likely" list. And yet you would think a spy certainly wouldn't put other spies in his team. Unfortunately, if this team sabotages the mission with the people on the team it's not going to help me narrow down who the most likely culprit is.

However, if we reject this team we'll be stuck with whoever Ty proposes for his team. At this point, I think I'd rather see what Ty's team looks like.

Anyway, that's my two cents worth...

As mentioned in an earlier post, I still have strong doubts re Bela. At present, I also rank Sal fairly highly as a potential spy. This means that I can’t in good faith vote for Sal’s team proposal of Sal, Zara, Sindy, Bela. I also feel this selection might be an attempt to potentially link a spy SABOTAGE vote with my name - since there have been a few ‘spy’ accusations thrown in my direction. Putting me on the same team as Bela is, I feel, possibly another way of trying to muddy the waters.

If this team is rejected (and I think it probably won’t be) then leadership would pass to Ty. My hope is that his selection would be Sindy’s suggestion (Ty, Sindy, Aspen, shell) for the reasons given below.

The team proposals that were most recently discussed as being likely to give us some useful information were those suggested by Sindy and Ty. These are summarised in miss snopes post of Jul-21-2017 07:50.

Briefly they are -
(1) Sindy’ choice: Ty, Sindy, Aspen, shell (i.e. the SUCCESSFUL M1, T@ team + one)
(2) Ty’s choice: shell, Ty, Sal, Bela (i.e. the FAILED M2, T3 team). Ty also suggested replacing either himself or Bela with someone else

I think that Sindy’s suggestion is by far the most logical. Why reject the core of a previously successful team? Yes, there may have been a spy lurking in there ‘hiding’ their identity, but if they reveal themselves now (and I think they would have to at this stage) then I call that ‘useful information’. We’d still have some working out to do - the spy’s identity isn’t handed to us on a plate - but its good base to work from. On the other hand, this might well be a completely RESISTANCE selection and give us another SUCCESS.

By contrast, Ty’s choice is a repeat of a previously failed team. Why earth would we want to do that?

Ok my typing fingers are on strike now. Back tomorrow : )

I'd like to clarify something; I'm pretty sure Ty never proposed sending the mission 2 (dirty) team on a mission again; he suggested this team *with* the change that one of us is swapped out for somebody. Obviously we'd never go for that team again.

I can't go for this team either...I considered voting YES to see how it'd go, but I think I'll take my chances with the team Ty proposes. I was going to ask shell if she was considering using her card before Ty's turn, but I doubt that will happen. Ty, if it gets to your turn to propose a team, could you have miss snopes, shell, and Aspen on it? shell because Sal vouching for her success vote means that for her to be a spy they would both have to be spies, which is more info than we have on anybody else right now. Of course, I'm also totally up to be on a team; please! :D

Mission 3, team 4: NO.

Okay, you all have convinced me that a yes vote on this team is not a good idea. And you are correct Bela, I have no intention of using my strong leader card unless I have too, or I am positive I have all the spys weeded out.

Ty I can live with Bela's team suggestion. I would prefer to have Zara, instead of Missy, but I won't vote no on any team you propose.
My choices in order of preference:

1) Ty, Sindy, Aspen, shell
2) Ty, Zara, Aspen, shell
3) Ty, Missy, Aspen, shell

From your opinion, I believe that this team (proposed by Sal) will be rejected. At least, Bela, me, Shell and Zara voted against it. So the burden to pick the team will pass to me and it is really a big burden since it's the 5th team in a row. That means any team I proposed will have to be accepted. So all the result will depend on my choice. So I have to consider thoroughly the new team I will propose.

And for clarifying, I've never supported for a team with a failure mission. Even the suggestion for that team with a replacement of me or Bela is not supported by me. I know I suggested it but because you guys were talking about taking risk with the mission to figure out the spies in return. I also said that I didn't like that idea. My way is the same from the beginning, we have to consider to win the missions. And that's the main goal.

So I like the idea of Sindy with a successful team + Shell. And that will be my proposal.

P/s: Again, no power. Sad :(
