I loved Werewolf, but the player elimination and long playtime has made it lose its charm. This is Werewolf with more information, without player elimination, and playable with a smaller group. Awesome.

I've played this game since the PnP edition and really enjoyed it. Despite going into a game expecting the spies to win, I still get great joy out of playing this game.

The joy is contingent on who you play with though. Get the wrong people at the table and this game can be like pulling teeth.

Fantastic game, when you've got a reasonably sociable group this is a fantastic fit. Bluffing and deduction blend together rapidly with accusations and counter accusations flying, the only way to deduce who is spying is to translate their votes and the success of the missions they go on. Absolutely brilliant!

Went over very, very well with my group. This game is fun enough for gamers, but simple enough I could play it with family.

Beaten out only by Die Kutschfahrt zur Teufelsburg as the best large-group card game in my collection.

Exceptional game for enthusiasts, beginners and experts. It's player range (5-10) makes it perfect for mid-sized parties. Similarities with werefolves/lupus in tabula, but way better than that.

After about 20 games, I've increased the rating from 8.5 to nine, and it could go higher.
This game is fun, and tense tense tense when you get people working together on it. Such a great intuitive and logical experience.
--
Up to about 30 plays, and clearly this is one of my favorites. This game is a 10 for me, one of only three (Diplomacy, Werewolf are the others).
--
Another UPDATE. This game rocks. Best game ever, no question. I love it, can't imagine ever not wanting to play it. I've played it over 60 times, and I want more. In fact, I want to play it right now, and I just played it three times.

I like this game to be Star Wars themed. But either way, its a great idea for a group were-wolf type game. The benefit here is that there is no player elimination.

We've found problem with scaling to some numbers of players, but there are a few rules modifications to account for that.

I introduced this game to a group of casual/non-gamers and we had a great evening of fun.

With the right group, this is the absolute best party game. I always enjoyed Werewolf, but The Resistance surpasses it by a long way. No player elimination means everyone is always in the game at all stages. The deduction, accusations and diversions, combined in a game that takes less than 30 mins, makes this game a must buy for those who like party games.

much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

The best social game.
Better than Werewolf, although compatible due different number of players.
Any time you are 5-10 players and you are looking for a social game, look no further as there is no better game.

Have the retail copy now. I've played the playtesting copy before and the Plot cards really add to the game by providing several more layers of information. 1) Who the leader is giving the good/bad cards to 2) Who the people with the cards choose to use it on and 3) The actual effects of the cards themselves

If BSG and Werewolf had a baby, it would be this game.

1) Like BSG and Werewolf, it has hidden good guys and bad guy roles
2) Like Werewolf, it's more of a party game (5-10 players)
3) Like Werewolf, it's pretty simple and does not require a lot of explaining to new players
4) Like Werewolf, it doesn't take 3 hours
5) Like Werewolf, there's an open voting phase, but instead of choosing who to kill, it's whether the chosen people get to go on the mission
6) Like BSG, It has hidden "skill checks" (missions) where the bad guys can choose to support or sabotage
7) Like BSG, there is no player elimination
8) Like BSG, there are ways you can look at someone's loyalty card or assign them special roles (with the Plot cards in the retail copy)

After tons of plays in different forms, I've come to the conclusion this is best without roles and without plot cards. While the game IS significantly imbalanced in favor of the spies without plot cards, it is also a much faster, much more elegant game experience.

Prefer the theme of Werewolf more, but Resistance is better because everyone stays in the game until the end. Can stink if you play with people who don't enjoy the genre. Definitely dependent on your game group.

The tension of Battlestar Galactica or Werewolf, but playable in 20 minutes and without player elimination. It gets requested almost constantly now. It's just so awesome.

Great game, perhaps my favourite of 2010. I love Werewolf, and The Resistance gives much the same enjoyment but in groups as small as 5. It's also gone over well with non-gamers, who might have hesitated at ripping out throats.

No moderation and no player elimination makes this game much better than Werewolf. Apart from the limited number of players.

Balance is perfect.

Ah, The Resistance. My favorite game.

We've had some amazingly good times. We've had some dramatically bad times. There have been ups and there have been plenty of downs. We've had people storm out of the room, cursing, declaring they would never play the game again. We've had people sit and look at their phone the entire game. I've had some of my favorite gaming memories, staring into my friends' eyes, trying to read there every movement and breath. This game has created friendships, torn them apart, and rebuilt them. Resistance is more than a game to us. Resistance is the foundation that has brought us together.

But, alas, no matter how many times we say that we're completely DONE with Resistance, we always come back for more. We just can't stay away. I would like to say a very warm thank you to Resistance for providing numerous hours of enjoyment to my gaming group.

Played it twice with 10 players each time ! We had a great time, this could be better than Werewolf, it is more group friendly but require more thinking and laughing !
It needs to be played more to see how good the game is...
for now, at least as good as werewolf...

Love - absolutely love - this game. Whether you have five players or ten, it's hard to think of a better "discussion" game. Werewolf is good, but has two obvious drawbacks - the need for a moderator, and the player elimination (it truly sucks to be killed in the very first night of a long game). Resistance avoids both problems *and* adds in the voting mechanism so that players are presented with useable information about who might be what.

Balance-wise, playing without the plot cards gives a bias to the spies. I've played over 20 times without the plot cards and the resistance has won only once or twice. With the plot cards, the balance swings in favour of the resistance.

But you know what? Balance issues really don't matter. This game is all about staring at the person opposite you and convincing them that you are loyal, before turning to your left-hand neighbour and telling them that they are a no-good traitor who couldn't lie straight in bed. I can't think of a better way to spend 30 minutes with a group of 5-10 friends.

[edit - 4 months later] Did I really rate this game a ten? I was wrong - it clearly deserves an eleven. Yes, I know the rating scale you use only goes up to ten, but mine goes to eleven. Which is higher, obviously.

The only time I'd ever turn down a game of this is if it's past 2am and I've already played four games of The Resistance since midnight.
