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 am sorry, people. I am exhausted from my work since yesterday. I will give more opinion when I feel better.

@ Zara

What does it matter if your name is linked to a potential SABOTAGE of this Mission? If the Mission is sabotaged, the game is over and the spies have won. You can then either celebrate your victory or lick your wounds of defeat. I don't understand what you're suggesting?

Um no Sindy - there may be only ONE sabotage vote - in which case its 2:2 for each side. Trying to link a RESISTANCE member to a SABOTAGE vote is one way to try and get them excluded from the final mission - and thus have the spies win the overall game.

What I meant Zara was, if Sindy is to be believed, she had already found 2 of the 3 spies. Aspen and Ty. So it can't be two more spies on this team, only one. Now of course that all depends on whether or not we believe Sindy.

The biggest *if* in the whole of the game so far ...

I don't know why a single spy in a double-spy round would bother to vote SABOTAGE since it would not sabotage the mission. Unless he wanted to create confusion as you suggest Zara. Why would I do that? Since I'm the team leader I would just put two spies on my team and hope the team went through.

When playing as a spy, I play to win. HOWEVER, I don't play games just for the sake of playing games.

THAT said, what everyone seems to keep overlooking is that I'm asking that Resistance vote this team down so AspenK is not a new mission leader and doesn't get power cards. We need the cards (hoping we get them) in the hands of someone most likely to be resistance - which in my opinion is Shell or Missy - so we can figure out who the third spy is and win the 5th Mission.

Sindy, if you yourself are a SPY then one clear possibility is this:

> You (falsely) named Ty and Aspen as SPIES.
> You then had to select a team for Mission 4 - which requires 2 SPIES to vote SABOTAGE in order for the mission to fail.
> Clearly you could not put Ty or Aspen on the team.
> Since there can only be ONE more spy your problem is - how do you get your TWO spies (i.e. you and whoever else you had chosen) onto the team in order to FAIL the mission with two SABOTAGE votes …. without giving the game away that you had lied about Ty and/or Aspen AND that therefore you yourself must be a SPY?

I think that you only realised how problematic this was after you had set up the situation - so now you want people to vote down the team.

Seriously, why would a RESISTANCE player want people to vote down a team that requires TWO SABOTAGE votes when she claims she has identified 2 SPIES anD eliminated them from the team?

It makes no sense at all, Sindy.

I get what you're saying about the powers Sindy. What scares me is that in this round of Resistance (Lurker) when given too much time, we Resistance members are led so astray by the spies and ultimately by ourselves as we "buy in" to their conspiracy theories that we run the risk of losing what we feel strongly about right now.
