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.

The mafia-killer. Does what I love about werewolf/mafia without player elimination.

A perfect filler.

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.

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he he lectured with

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.

Stefan Feld games are balanced and mathematically elegant while being obtuse, emotionally detached, and mechically inelegant. The most overrated designer of modern games. The King of JASE.

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.

I was so surprised by the amount of sheer fun this game is. It feels like BSG without any of the boring stuff. My favourite game for a large group at the moment.
