How about a game of The Resistance?

#1

Post by boydster » Wed Nov 27, 2019 9:44 pm

I'm thinking about running a game of The Resistance here. We need at least 5 people to play a game. For anyone unfamiliar with the game, it's a pretty simple concept. You have a team of players called the Resistance, and a small team called the Spies. The Resistance team is trying to complete 3 missions successfully, and the Spies are trying to cause 3 mission failures.

Each round starts with a Team Leader nominating a team of people to run a mission. If the team is approved, the mission goes forward. If the team is rejected, leadership passes to the next person in line. Once there is an approved team on a mission, each team member sends me a PM stating whether they will support the mission or sabotage it. If everyone supports the mission, it passes. If anyone decides to sabotage, it fails.

Simple concept. Potential for lots of intrigue. I'm aware that this is a bit of a holiday long-weekend, so floating the idea now and if there is enough interest in the next few days, I'll kick a game off on Wednesday next week. Again, we'd need at least 5 people to make a go of it. The more, the merrier.

I'm interested, but I'll be at pax unplugged next weekend and wouldn't be checking in much.

Alright, well depending on the reception, if it looks like it makes sense to postpone until the following week I am certainly not opposed to the idea.

Also, games filled kinda slow back when we still played mafia here. So don't be surprised or dismayed if it takes a bit. :)

I'm entering into this with zero expectations. If it works out, it should be a lot of fun though. And if it doesn't, well, nothing ventured nothing gained right?

Alright shameless thread bump here. We've got one, possibly two players. Need a minimum of 5. Anyone else want to get in on this action? 9 out of 10 doctors agree, it's the best thing you can do on the entire internet.

Sounds complicated to my ape mind, but I'll try to give it a shot.
