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.

As I said, Sindy, it's easy to make any explanation based on a built-in conclusion. I said that just as every people here. Even you also said that you are a resistance and that you are helping the resistance. And if AspenK is a spy (and I am as you said), so how can I know that mission will be successful? Do you see the conflict in your words which you made among several current posts, Sindy?

"I didn't point this out when Yeti Face tried this gambit because of course at the time I was a spy – as was he."

That Yeti Face has the best gambits.

What do you expect when you walk all over Sleuthville with no clothes on Yeti?

Is it overly simplistic to infer from this result that players have voted according to their allegiance? If the spies have voted NO (or ‘missed’ the deadline) then we would have our SPY:RESISTANCE split.

This would make our SPIES: Bela, Aspen and Ty,
and the RESISTANCE: Sal, Sindy, shell, Zara, miss snopes.

Other supporting evidence?
1. It aligns with Sindy’s assertion that both Ty and Aspen are spies.
2. It aligns with Bela’s suspicious conduct from the outset of the game and her support of Aspen K.
3. It aligns with Aspen’s support of Bela.
4. It aligns with *one* interpretation of the M2, T3 result - where Sal used IN THE SPOTLIGHT to post his SUCCESS vote and also used KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON YOU to claim that shell voted SUCCESs.

Anyhow, this is just me thinking out loud and I may well have missed some other obvious points. As always, any data is open to interpretation.

Well, it’s late here so - over and out for now.
