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.

5) For M3, T2, Zara proposes a team of: Zara, Sindy, Shell & Missy. This would be 4 Resistance members under current theory. It was rejected because Sal, Ty, Aspen & Bela voted NO. Keep in mind, Bela voted NO everytime she wasn't on a team so I'm not focusing there.)

6) For M3, T4, Sal proposes a team of: Sal, Sindy, Bela & Zara. This was voted down 6-1 (Sal didn’t vote). Just noting this because he puts himself with 3 Res (under this theory).

7) For M4, T2 (2 sabotage mission), Aspen proposes: Ty, Aspen*, Bela, Zara & Missy. She was the only one of these 3 to have an opportunity to put a team together for a 2 sabotage mission.

These things on their own aren't big but they make ME feel good about proposing a team of: Sindy, Bela, Shell, Zara & Missy. I am not making this official yet because if this is voted down, Sal and Ty pick the next 2 teams before it gets back to Sindy for the 5th and last chance. Please give me any thoughts you might have, any holes anyone (Res) sees that I might be missing.

I think you’ve made an excellent analysis, Missy. And I feel that some things might have been clearer to us earlier on but our suspicions of Bela, in particular, messed things up.

I agree with your identification of the spies as Sal, Ty and Aspen. And now comes an important message for all member of the Resistance.

@THE RESISTANCE **PLEASE REMEMBER TO VOTE**

Remember that Shell is away and unable to vote. If even one of us misses the deadline then Missy’s mission team will be rejected on a 3-3 vote tie. I believe in this team selection and I hope you do too. *Don’t forget to vote*

I haven't proposed the team yet. I know Shell will be back tomorrow although I don't know what time.

I'm going to take a few more hours to run through a few more scenarios and see if anyone else has anything to contribute before officially proposing a team.

Lol, yes I know it's not *official* yet - but I'll be surprised if it changes.

And oh my, it's Friday tomorrow. Yes, shell will be back. This week has just flashed by.

Okay, from the evidence, of (Sal, Missy), Sal has to be the spy. Because Sal, Missy, and Sindy were all on M4 and there were no sabotage votes, there was a maximum of one spy on that team. So Sindy's clean, which means that the people she outed as spies (Ty and Aspen) were indeed the other two spies. Brilliant save, Resistance. :D. I will so be playing the next game differently. XD

I will be voting yes only to a team of miss snopes, Zara, Sindy, shell, and Bela.

Voted earlier today.

I'm surprised that none of the alleged spies have even attempted to fight their case ...
