From the Publisher...
The Resistance is a very intense social deduction game for 5-10 players. While it shares similiarities with games like Werewolf, Mafia and even Battlestar Galactica it has many very unique features such as a quick 30 minute play time, no moderator required and no player elimination.
Set in the near future, The Resistance pits a small group of resistance fighters against a powerful and corrupt government. The resistance has launched a series of bold and daring missions to bring the governement to its knees. Unfortunately spies have infiltrated the resistance ranks, ready to sabotage the carefully crafted plans. Even a single spy can take down a resistance mission team, choose your teams carefully or forever lose your chance for freedom.
Included in this release is a full expansion - "The Plot Thickens" is 15 additional action cards that increase the pressure and pacing of the game, and requires the spies to be even more deceitful if they are to achieve victory.
The Resistance artfully balances pure deduction elements with the social elements into a game that creates the adreniline filled moments of high stakes poker but in a full interactive and social event. Its not for the faint of heart, or slow of mind - but if you are quick on your feet you'll be proud of your hard fought victories.

|This game will make it so that you can play up to a 10 person game that isn't Werewolf (not a huge fan of that one). Through increasing missions, certain players are trying to sabotage the rest of the group while the loyalists are trying to pass the missions. There will be tons of discussion, accusations, and good times.
|One of my all-time favorite games.
The Resistance brings in all the social deduction elements of Werewolf, but also brings in several new ways to gather information, and it does all this while avoiding player elimination. The Resistance is probably the perfect short social game.
|I recently received this game as a birthday present and it has quickly become one of our absolute favorites! The Resistance is a game that is very simple to pick up and will allow for countless hours of fun. This game pits members of the resistance who are trying to overthrow a tyrannical government against spies who are trying to secretly supplant the resistance. All in all this game is well worth the price and one I would suggest to anyone who can gather up 5 people to play.
|For me, I find this game to have 90% of the fun of Battlestar Galactica in 10% of the time. Root out the traitors!
