I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

/in. I'd prefer no plot cards - But some roles would be nice. I liked the avalon ones, but I'm sure there's a whole world of other roles too just like in mafia, so I'm fine with whatever for that.

Although, I guess I'm not sure exactly what plot cards are. So maybe :P

I voted for all of the Avalon roles, but any combination of them is fine.

There's not actually much more than what we had in that last game. The two big missing things we had were Lancelot (two roles, one is generally good, one is generally evil, but which is which can switch around before missions 3-5 meaning they have uncertain loyalties) and Excalibur (when proposing a mission you must give Excalibur to someone. They can choose to use it on another player to look at the mission card that player submitted, but then must swap the card for the unplayed card (pass <=> fail)).

Asides from that there's plot cards, which are a deck of special effects which the first leader on a mission draws from and uses. They have various effects - some are one time bonuses, others are permanent effects. The number of cards drawn depends on player count (2 per mission in 7 player). Plot cards apparently don't integrate especially well with Avalon, but it's possible. I've never done it.

I'm going to put myself down as a possible 7th player if you need to fill the numbers, but otherwise won't play. I would be happy to play but would also like to be an informed observer.

But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

What's Resistance?

What's Resistance?

It's a mafia-esque game of social deduction. A number of players will secretly be spies, trying to sabotage the resistance. Players take turns proposing missions of varying numbers of players. People vote on if they want the missions to go ahead or not. If a mission does go ahead, then people on the mission get the choice of passing the mission, and doing what they're meant to - or  sabotaging the mission secretly if they're a spy. Players find out how many times a mission was sabotaged, but not by whom. A mission only needs a single sabotage played for it to fail (usually). The resistance win by passing three missions, and spies win by sabotaging three missions.

The Avalon version introduces a few new roles which have new effects - most notably, "Merlin" who knows all the spies, who is counterbalanced by the assassin - a spy who, if the resistance passes three missions, can attempt to kill Merlin, and if she succeeds, wins the games for the spies.

That's a short overview. If you check the old Resistance threads, you can probably find rules and see examples of gameplay. The most recent game was a notably confusing one, so I'd look for very early or vanilla ones to see the basic game in action.

If we're going to have people who haven't played before, I'd suggest just having Merlin and Percival. I think that's fairly interesting, but it's also easy to explain and remember: Spies know each other, Merlin knows the Spies but has to keep secret, and Percival knows Merlin.

If it was up to me, I'd say 7 players, Merlin (and Assassin) and Percival and that's it.

It seems like there's some interest in another resistance game, post here if you would like to play. I am going to limit signups to 7 players max.

As for the setup, I'm open to run whatever the majority of players would like. I will be creating a poll with the signups -- please vote for your preferred option!

1) mail-mi
2) yuma
3) Jimmm
4) Chairs
5)
6)
7)

Need to add liopoil to this, then we only need two more players, or could even just play with 5.

Just as a reminder, if you need one more to get to 7 I'm /in, otherwise I'm /out.

I'll start this by Wednesday if no one else signs up.

With 5, I'm not sure how all of the roles would work. We may just play with Merlin and Percival, if we end on 5.

Pretty excited about this. They say 7 is probably best, and that might be true, but I do think it works really well with 5. Plus it's nice only to have 4 people to keep track of.
