Hey everybody. :D How about some Resistance? It doesn't matter whether you're an old hand or just somebody curious about all this "filthy spy" business and thinking about giving it a whirl - all are welcome to play! I won't be able to come up with a background story for this one, but you can throw in some drama if you wish. :D

Links to a few of the previous games for anybody that might be interested:

Rules:

The game consists of five missions; the Resistance needs 3 successful missions to win, while the spies are looking to sabotage 3. First team to 3 wins.

As soon as we have a final list of players (we need a minimum of 5 players, and a max of 10), I will PM everyone their allegiance (whether they’re a part of the “Resistance” or if they’re a “Spy”) and create a List with the names of all the players in a random order. Spies will also be informed of the identities of the all the other spies.

A "leader" will be chosen from the top of the List 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.

That's fine. There's no need for any of the rest of you to answer. I'm 95% sure Sindy and Sal are the spies, and I'd be willing to bet Benjamin on it. Therefore, I will not be voting for any 3-team combination that is not composed of LaSorella, Marc, and myself. Have fun.

RIZA: I did take a step of faith giving Sal the power, because I was giving him the chance to check on Sindy, and increase the chance of identifying the spies.

SAL: Ssince you did not use it like I hoped, I wonder if you already knew of Sindy which would mean you are both the spies.

MARC: where do you stand. I cannot still place you.

SINDY: I am willing to take a chance with this team, to see if there is a sabotage in the making.

Well, it seems the decisions have all been made, but I voted yes for the team because I was willing to take a hit for the Resistance to out a spy.

I was struggling with that strategy and then you posted: "If you're resistance and you're not on a 3-person team, vote it down." Well, I am Resistance, and I was on a 3-person team, so to me what you were saying was I should vote yes.

I didn't post earlier because this is the first time I've logged in since you posted Riza. I've been busy baking. :)

The team Sindy proposed, consisting of {Sindy, LaSorella, Riza} has been APPROVED 3-2:

Riza: NO
LaSorella: YES
Sindy: YES
Sal: NO*
Marc: YES*

*vote randomised

Sindy, LaSorella and Riza must PM me their SUCCESS/SABOTAGE votes - you have 24 hours. (Members of the Resistance MUST vote to have the mission SUCCEED, while spies can choose to SUCCEED or SABOTAGE).

My vote was intended to be no but I suppose this mission will show us who the spies are

Dear LaSorella, in regard to your last post...I am sorry that I did not use the power as you expected. Also, if I KNEW Sindy's allegiance them I'm a spy and know EVERYONE'S allegiance, not just Sindy's.

MISSION 3


Sal is the new leader. Please pick a team of TWO people (you may put yourself on the team).

Once Sal proposes his team, everybody will vote on whether on not they approve the team proposal by PMing me. If a majority approves it, this team goes on the mission; if not, leadership passes onto Marc, and so on. If 5 team proposals are rejected in a row, the spies win by default.

Your power (which you can give to anybody, including yourself) is...

NO CONFIDENCE You may play this after
a successful vote to
cause it to fail, forcing a
leadership change.

I log in after a nice Thanksgiving dinner to find my lovely team sabotaged. Can't say I'm surprised.

My initial thoughts after the first round were:

1) Both players were spies and didn't want to risk 2 sabotage votes or posting a "hidden message" on the message boards,

2) One player was a spy but didn't feel comfortable outing herself with only two players on the team, or

3) Both players were Resistance.

Then I saw Riza's post. It looks really good - and she asked a lot of good questions. But when I saw her post: "Therefore, I will not be voting for any 3-team combination that is not composed of LaSorella, Marc, and myself" I thought "uh-oh." This is a typical spy line to draw in the sand. Go back and read previous games and you will see this is something typically used by spies to excuse their refusal to vote for certain teams.

Also, Riza is typically a pretty quiet player, but all of a sudden in this game she's taking a strong role - another "uh-oh" in my mind.

I'd like to know what everyone else is thinking.
