Finished my first werewolf game here on the forums. Hi #12. I was unable to convince the hunter not to shoot me and we lost. This took less than a week to do.

So, yeah, Resistance takes too long. I now understand the original structure of having solid deadlines - I think people were trying to make it more like the werewolf community here, but with the public voting vs. the private voting, and needing a vote from all players, it's really a different model.

Somewhere between 'no deadline' and 'solid deadline' has to be a happy medium, and I would like to find it.

My idea is to have a set period after the proposal during which the arguing happens. Vote deadline after that period. At that time, no posting until the votes are all in.

Same for proposals... have a proposal deadline, and when we hit that deadline, no posting until the proposal comes through.

I think we need to work to avoid the endless thinking that seems to occur sometimes, while forcing the players to play within a more reasonable timeframe. The way the game is taking forever is actually very stressful for the Rebel players and boring for the Spies.

Please weigh in - is it broke and needing fixed, or is it fine the way it is?

Note I don't say how long those deadlines should be... just that they should be there.

And the fact that some of those early Resistance games were run by BGG Werewolfers... so it explains the similarities. whistle

Those would be the mentioned 'people'. Hey, you go with what you know, right? Of course, when you could be lynched you show up to the thread. When there's no real threat, you hang back, check once a day... never post... forget to vote... heh.

I'd be ok with deadlines, provided they were relaxed over the weekend.

Who's your avatar now?

Agreed, and that's how WW does it as well. And that's how I always ran my games back when I was trying to enforce a deadline (ha!)

Oh...

I'm glad you're all getting into it!

I just can't... read it... with Clyde doing whatever it is that Clyde is doing. So I don't.

I wouldn't know! Hey, we've ruined my thread. That's why I posted a new thread instead of the signup thread.

Back on topic - I thought that "Werewolf vs. Resistance PBF" was going to be some sort of awesome online-only meld of the two games. Yes! I'll play that!

Wait, that wasn't on topic...

But yeah, werewolf as a social game kind of self-corrects for non-social pieces by removing them from the game. PBF Resistance makes that tougher. If everyone's quiet, spies have an easy time. On the WW side, we have done games specifically where not-enough-posting had some kind of negative effect. Can't think of any way off hand to incorporate that into Resistance, but tossing the thought out there.

You can't kill rebels, there aren't enough of them.

How about taking Werewolf's voting system, except vote for several people to go on the mission with you, and whoever gets the most votes goes? Now we've got a hybrid!

Hmm! This is an interesting variant. I thought you didn't like variants, Jyth?

I think the main problem with this is the spies would always vote each other onto missions. But that would remove a common convention for spies when they have two+ spies on the mission, I suppose...I'd be up for it!

It would be interesting and probably broken. I don't like variants. But this is a hybrid, which is different than a variant.

I mean theoretically, one could argue Resistance is simply a Mafia/Werewolf variant.

5 player game, for a two person mission, everybody gets two votes, and has to put them on different people. So it's like getting 5 proposals at once.

Nope. Mafia and Werewolf are completely different.

Yeah, I'd be up for playing and/or modding a game like that actually.

Different from each vote, not different from themself, to clarify. So you can vote yourself and one other person, or two other people, etc.

I wonder if Cassie could track multiple votes?

Public votes, or private?
