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.

Thanks, Sindy, for revealing your allegiance to me and help me to figure out Aspen's allegiance too. I think your move is really good. Accusing me and Aspen will throw away an suspicion on you and keep at least 1 more your ally spy safe then you can sabotage 1 more mission. And it seems logical since the 1st mission including both of us was successful. So you can blame on the reason that because of 2 spies were on the same team. But Sindy, do you forget that this team was proposed by me? And this team got only 1 sabotage?

My suggestion to Resistance, since Aspen and Bela are next in line for leadership is to vote down this team and the next two until leadership falls to Shell and hope she gets some good cards that will give her the necessary info to pick out the third spy.

I haven't abandoned Sal - see my post above, Zara. I said I can't figure out which of them is the remaining spy. However, after going over the thread again with my newfound knowledge some of your posts make my nose itch, Zara.

That's why I was having a hard time determining who the spies were even though I had strong suspicions - because they were putting each other on their teams - something that in the past has been considered "not done" by spies but which for that very reason is *great* spy cover.

Resistance, if you reread the thread and look at the votes with the point of view that Aspen and Ty are spies, I think you will come to the conclusion that will lead Resistance to a win on this Mission.

@ Ty,

Ty, you're just a great big red spy flag waving in the breeze. Every post you make says, "Hi, I'm a spy."

Here's are the pros and cons in my mind regarding Sal:

1. He skipped over Ty who I now know is a spy.
2. However, he skipped over Ty to put me and AspenK (another spy on his team)? Why would he skip over Ty to avoid a spy and then put another spy on his team? It would look a little *too* suspicious if he skipped over too many people?
3. He has (to me at least) acted somewhat out of character throughout this game, but I have only played one other Resistance game with him.
4. In the Resistance game I played with him he was Resistance and as Resistance he skipped over players to include players further down the list because as he said lots of times the players at the bottom of the list don't really get to be involved in game play (if it's a large game). My point being it's not out of character for him as a Resistance player to skip over other players.

5. Sal was all to willing to vote "no" on his own team to pass leadership down to Ty.

@ Ty (2)

Yes, you did put AspenK on your team, but you also posted this after doing so:

Just sent the PM. Let's see what will happen:

1) First of all, I AM A RESISTANCE. And I am gonna prove that to you by this mission.

2) Sindy Voted No for this team? So weird. Is there any reason, Sindy, to refuse a team with you? Is that you wanna deny this team then team up with Bela for some reasons?

2) I hope my selection with Sindy in this team is right and the mission is going to be successful. If, just in case, we fail this mission, I will keep an eye on you, Sindy and maybe, your ally, Bela (I think)

________

Item No. 1) hit me the second I read it. You were basically saying you were going to vote SUCCEED on the boards. Evidently, AspenK didn't catch your meaning.

It seems you are very excited, sindy :D

It's easy to say anything and explain everything which you had conclusion already. Whatever, you and me now are definitely on the opposite sides. If you are resistance, so I will be a spy and otherwise. I think it's obvious to people. So let people give their conclusion based on the game process. Hope they will find the both sides we belong to :D

In regard to the failed Sal, Ty, Bela, Shell team:

If Sal is a spy, surely he would have lied about Shell's vote? If he's not a spy, and Ty and Bela are both spies, how were they able to determine who was going to vote SABOTAGE?

Okay, so here are my thoughts on the events from the past 24 hrs.

If Sindy is Resistance, then there is no reason to lie, therefore Aspen and Ty would be spies.

If Sindy is a spy, then she could be lying about both Aspen and Ty, or she could sacrifice one of them. As Resistance we would still need to figure out who is the spy and who is Resistance. She can't sacrifice both unless she plans on this mission succeeding and then sabatoge mission 5 herself.

That is all I have. I could have known more, but for some reason the person who seems to be regarded as most likely resistance and knows for a fact that Ty or Bela sabatoged mission 2, is the one who doesn't get the ability to confirm any of the speculations floating about. Well actually, Sal also knows it had to be Ty or Bela, but at the moment there is no consensus as to his alliance.

If Sal was a spy, lying about my vote would have only confirmed my suspicions that he is a spy. I've been trying to figure out why Sal choose me to keep an eye on. And there are only two reasons that make sense.
1) He is a spy and was helping hide the second spy on the team.
2)He is Resistance and creating a link between myself and him.

I need to follow the bouncing powers. And I also want to hear what Aspen and Missy have to say.

I'm going to have to comment on one thing at a time here because while reading through something jumps out at me but then when I read the next thing, I focus elsewhere. Let me start with this:

This is from Bela's post on:

Jul-29-2017 14:08

If Ty revealed his allegiance to say, shell, she'd know for sure who it was that sabotaged M2 and that could shed some light on the M3 team too. If you revealed it to me, Ty, I'd also be able to figure out the same. shell is the slightly more publicly trustworthy person, but if you are Resistance, I promise I will fight to have you on every team plus we'd know if shell and Sal are spies. We'll, I'd know, but I'll do my best to unravel the whole thing then from my point of view, and do my best to convince everybody of your Resistance-ness.

In the M2 failed mission, we have all agreed that it was either Ty or Bela that voted SABOTAGE (unless Sal lied about shell, but for now forget that part). So if it wasn't Bela, then she should know it was Ty yet she is still saying here that he could possibly be Resistance? This makes no sense to me. Bela, either you are the spy or you know Ty is. It's that simple. Yet you tell Ty to reveal himself to you? Why? So you can withhold that he is a spy from the rest of us again or so that you can keep the rest of us from knowing that you are the spy? Then again, it could possibly be you both are spies.

Now on to the other scenario: Let's say Sal did lie about shell's vote. Then that would mean that Sal and shell are the spies. From where I'm sitting, if Bela really were Resistance her first suspect would be Ty and her second suspect(s) would be shell with Sal as her partner. I find it strange that Bela keeps championing shell and saying she is the most public trustworthy person. Are you saying of the spies she is the most trustworthy?
