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.

Well done Resistance and … a round of applause to the spies. You did well to keep us guessing and confused for so long!

Mr Announcer, you made my heart stop for a few seconds - seeing that word FAILURE as I scrolled down the page. Naughty, naughty : ) Many thanks for hosting the game.

Thank you to Sindy for her gift of $50K - that was a very sweet gesture : ) One one person actually took up my wager though. I’ll call him ‘mystery man’ since he placed his bet by PM.

Well played everyone. Looking forward to the next game : )

Very funny Mr. Announcer. I almost had a seizure. :p

Congratulations Resistance!

A well-played game by the spies - it could have gone either way. Great deductive work by my fellow Resistance members. I hope to play Resistance with you all again.

Oh my goodness, I wake up and read

Mission 5 was a FAILURE.

Not funny !!
Great job Resistance, I wish I could have been around to play the last Mission. I definitely will be playing again. Kudos to the spies, especially Ty. I had a difficult time believing you were a spy, it wasn't until you asked me to tell you what to do that I firmly believe you to be a spy.

Good job everyone. Well played all around. Resistance got there just in time, but Sindy you were great. You actually had us all pegged very early on and I almost swallowed my tongue when you identified us all so early on. I think we spies did well too, after all Sindy you had put me on a Mission 5 team. :)

"FAILURE" - not cool, Dashing. Not. Cool. This has definitely been the most confusing game for me so far, but it was a good game. Res, I'm sorry about all the confusion. XD. I'm not sure how many times I've said this now, but I swear I will only play next when I can actually pop in and read (and reread and overanalyse) all the posts. I look forward to seeing how Rabbit Doubt plays it though! :D. I'll PM you my guesses (...assuming there is something like an allegiance to guess :P).

Also, credit to Sindy; I have finally seen you play a Res game. It strikes me as very similar to your spy game. Hmm. XD
