I have added sets of probabilities to The Resistance game page. I tried to insert the graphs here as well, but I just can't seem to apply the same wiki code to general posts and I don't feel like reformatting it a third time.

One of my primary goals in the design process was making sure the game scaled well between all numbers of players and remained relatively consistent in terms of probabilities. In viewing the probability table for how likely the Empire is to receive a set of plans, you can see the general differences between player numbers. Other than the 6 player game, which has a clear yet unavoidable outlier at the '2 plan' level, the probabilities are very stable.

The 'range' statistical measure is very useful here. There is only 28% max difference between games. No matter how many people are playing, it's guaranteed that the probability of an Imperial Spy receiving a set of plans is never more than 28% different between games, and even that is pretty rare.

Anyway, thought people might be interested.
