Since mafia has gone quiet, I thought I would take the chance to hold a play-by-forum game of the resistance.
What is the resistance? Well you can get all the rules and watch the hilarity through tabletop - http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... _QRczGzXqw


Sign-ups close Friday night or anytime after as soon as we get five or more players
RULES:
1. No PMing!!! I can't regulate this, so please be good.
2. Do not quote my PM's or give hints about anything like colours, pictures that may relate to your alliance
3. Please attempt to take part in each day. I can't modkill you since there is no player elimination, but I can ban from further games if you don't take part.
4. Have fun! This is a light quick game.

How will this work on forum? These are my thoughts currently)
1. PM's sent. Team leader chosen after all responses received (random dice generator)
2. Spies are PM'ed a list of their fellow spies.


DAWN
4. Team leader chooses team for mission
5. Players have 24 hours to discuss and PM me their vote for the team. Anyone who doesn't vote in time limit will automatically be counted as a 'NAY' vote.
6. Team vote will be revealed on forum after all PMs received or at end of 24 hours. (yes, remember your vote will be shown to everyone)

DAY
7. Team members "receive" their mission cards. They will have 24 hours to PM me their decision. Anyone who doesn't vote in this time limit will be counted as playing a 'SUCCESS' vote.

NIGHT
8. Results will be revealed once all PMs received or after 24 hours.
9. Next player in number order will receive team leader.

RINSE and REPEAT until game end.

Please let me know your thoughts or sign up!

Picked up a copy of the game after watching the Tabletop episode. Really fun.

Msl, you just need to watch the first few mins of the video to learn the rules and how to play

As a reminder to new players, there is no player elimination in this game.

That video is long so I found a short synopsis of the game.
Quote:
The Resistance is a party game in the same vein as Mafia. The players make up a rebel group working to overthrow the (presumably evil) Empire. However, among their number are Imperial spies that seek to thwart the efforts of the Resistance!

Players are either Resistance members, unaware of each others' loyalties, or Imperial spies, the informed minority. The goal of the Resistance is to successfully execute a series of increasingly difficult missions, and the goal of the Empire is to sabotage their plans.

At the start of the game players are dealt roles and a Leader is selected randomly. Play then proceeds as follows:

The Plan: The current Leader must assemble a team to perform the next mission. The required team size depends on the number of total players and the current round. The first mission may require a team of only 2 or 3, but that number will rise on subsequent missions. The Leader can include himself on a mission, but he doesn't have to.

The Leader has 24 hours to make make his selections and submit them as a proposal. Once a formal proposal is made, it cannot be changed.

The Vote: The Leader's proposal is then put to a yes/no vote. Players will have 24 hours to PM their votes to me. When voting is finished I will announce the results and reveal how each player voted.

If the plan is accepted, the mission team proceeds as ordered. If it is rejected, Leadership passes on to the next player in line and he has 24 hours to submit a new proposal.

The Mission: The team then decides the fate of the mission. Rebel operatives must SUPPORT the mission, but Imperial spies may choose to either SUPPORT or SABOTAGE. All team members must PM me their actions within 24 hours.

Once I've received the player actions I will reveal the outcome of the mission.

If there are no acts of sabotage, the mission succeeds and the Resistance scores a point. If there is at least one act of sabotage, the mission fails and the Empire scores a point. You will not learn the identity of the saboteur(s), but you will learn how many acts of sabotage occurred.

After the mission, Leadership passes to the next player in line and a new turn commences. The first team to score 3 points wins the game.

I ended up watching the video after all. I learned the rules of the game, basic strategies, and that red-heads always lie.
