      The Resistance Game Thread

      Dusting off this long-forgotten subforum (don't mind the cobwebs).

      I've been playing a lot of board games lately and watching a lot of TableTop on Youtube, and found this game that I really liked called The Resistance. It works kinda like Mafia/Werewolf, so I figured it could be adapted into a forum game much like Mafia is. Though not technically a role-playing game per say, it'd still be pretty fun, so I'm curious if anyone else would want to join.

      Kind of a general overview of the game: The story is set around a futuristic dystopia where rich corporations have gained control of corrupt government officials in order to rule the world however they see fit. An elite group of rebels, cleverly called "The Resistance", is seeking to overthrow this corrupt government and return power to the people. However, government spies have infiltrated the ranks of The Resistance and are looking to sabotage their missions and destroy the rebels from within.

      Or to see this game being played in its truest form as a card game, check out the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_QRczGzXqw

      So that's the gist of it. If you're interested, PM me or post in this thread (also add a title or funny saying to put next to your name on the player list). Or if you have any questions, put them here as well.

      Hi!!
      I love board games... 'Ludopata' is my name I'm not fully sure how it works, but I'd like to join the resistance Just one question about the missions and Spies, Is there a way to know who a spy is? Or set a mission as taking down a spy?

      Edit: Hahaha just watched the video... so, May I play? Add me if so as Box77 (The one who doesn't know)

      The spies will find out who the other spies are at the beginning of the game, but none of the members of the Resistance will know who is a Spy and who isn't. Therefore, they must attempt to deduce who is a spy and who isn't based on team selections when leader, voting patterns, and any other suspicious Spy-like activity (of course, paranoia will ensue, which will make it more fun).

      For each team selection, the Resistance's goal is to fill the entire team with Resistance members, as doing so will ensure the mission's success. The Spies' goal is to get at least one spy accepted onto a team, as this will give them the opportunity to sabotage a mission. However, they may choose not to sabotage (possibly to divert suspicion, for example). There's no player elimination like in Mafia or Werewolf, so there's not a way to "take down" a spy - you just avoid putting them on any teams in order to ensure a successful mission.

      Spellbee2, Box77 (and those reading this)


      Does anyone have any ideas on how we can get this done even More Simply in this thread (or in "Chat) (???)


      At point (3:41) of Will Weaton's Video, the game begins.

      (3:54) The Dude (Will Weaton) mixes the cards up and deals them out.

      Everyone secretly looks at their card to find out if they are Loyal or a Spy .

      Ok, when everyone knows what they are

      Everyone closes their eyes.

      Then Will Weaton say's,

      "Those who are spy's, open your eyes and make eye contact".

      Now close your eyes.

      Now everyone open your eyes.

      And the game begins. Here is Will Weaton's game.

      the above video looks really simple. The forum rules look daunting to me. But once we are underway it will be simple and fun.

      In 4 minutes of the Youtube you will get the gist of the game. It's from the (3:40) to (8:00) segment of the Youtube. Then they repeat this (4 minutes) four more times to see if the Spy's or the Good Guy's win.

      So

      Have a look at just the 3:40 to 8 minute segment of the video to get the gist of Spellbee2's game.

      And tell me what you think

      Here is the Youtube, again:
