Description Edit | History

The Empire must fall. Our mission must succeed. By destroying their key bases, we will shatter Imperial strength and liberate our people. Yet spies have infiltrated our ranks, ready for sabotage. We must unmask them. In five nights we reshape destiny or die trying. We are the Resistance!

The Resistance is a party game of social deduction. It is designed for five to ten players, lasts about 30 minutes, and has no player elimination. The Resistance is inspired by Mafia/Werewolf, yet it is unique in its core mechanics, which increase the resources for informed decisions, intensify player interaction, and eliminate player elimination.

Players are either Resistance Operatives or Imperial Spies. For three to five rounds, they must depend on each other to carry out missions against the Empire. At the same time, they must try to deduce the other players’ identities and gain their trust. Each round begins with discussion. When ready, the Leader entrusts sets of Plans to a certain number of players (possibly including himself/herself). Everyone votes on whether or not to approve the assignment. Once an assignment passes, the chosen players secretly decide to Support or Sabotage the mission. Based on the results, the mission succeeds (Resistance win) or fails (Empire win). When a team wins three missions, they have won the game.

Rule Correction:

For first printing (2010 purchases), the expansion rules should read: "Games of 5-6 players use 7 plot cards, games with 7+ players use all 15 Plot Cards." and "...each Round, the leader draws Plot cards (1 for 5-6 players, 2 for 7-8 players, and 3 for 9-10 players)" - This has been corrected in the subsequent printings.

5 Card-sized mission track
I wanted to make a version of The Resistance that I could fit into a normal sized card box, and the big thing getting in the way is the size of the mission mats. This zip file contains PDFs which can be printed, cut, and placed into a Magic-card sized sleeve (preferably with a card for backing). There's one PDF with thematic sci-fi landscape artwork, and another that's just plain black and white. As a bonus, I also included all of the resources used to make these PDFs in nanDeck, if you'd like to see how it's done or modify them.

2 Spies Reveal "Everyone Close Your Eyes" (Andoid APP / APK)
I use this on my Android Tablet for smooth audio transitions into The Resistance Universe. It is a simple Android apk file with the "Everyone Close your Eyes" portion my mp3 built in. This is not on the play store since they want $30 for me to post an mp3 file! I've tested this on my Nexus 7 with no problems. You need to download "apk installer" from the Google Play Store if you dont have it already. Thanks for the positive feedback and even criticism!
