Default The Resistance III


The 7 members of The Resistance meet in secret to plan a mission against their corrupt and tyrannical government. But the members know that there are three spies among them. Will the Resistance be able to complete three successful missions?

* This thread is always open for discussion.
* No communication is allowed outside the game thread among EITHER team.
* All votes will be PMed to me and then I will reveal the results.
* If you are nominated to go on a proposed mission, PM me your decision to SUCCEED or FAIL the mission, should the proposal pass, along with your YES or NO vote on the mission proposal.

Every resistance member received the following PM:
Quote:
You are a member of the resistance. Your goal is to complete three successful missions.

The mission sizes will be as follows:

MissionTeam Size
12
23
33
44*
54

Missions with a * will SUCCEED unless there are at least two players who choose to FAIL them.

Order for the leader's turn will be as follows:

#Player 
1Daphne GirlLEADER
2chunksmediocrities 
3Deadlokd 
4Contrapposto 
5Kael 
6Crumb 
7JEROME DA GNOME 

So Daphne is the first leader and must choose 2 members to go on the first mission. When you are ready to make an official proposal please put it in BOLD.

Please let me know if you have did not get a role PM from me.

Ok, since the first mission is two members, how about me and Chunks?
Proposed first mission.

Looks like a proposal to me.

Proposal 1.1: Daphne, chunks

PM me your YES or NO vote and, if you happen to be Daphne or chunks, include whether you would like to SUCCEED or FAIL the mission should the proposal pass.

Okey I voted. Our mission to write very stern letters of disapproval to our Congressional representative is GO.

Or are we on the mission where we spam shoops of dear leader spooning with Abe Vigoda?

I would be just fine with the same proposal, being that I suggested it as one of my two preferred options prior to proposal 3.1 being made official by Dl.

However I do not wish to make a proposal that will fall flat along the exact same lines regarding the voters, gleaning no additional info. That would be a totally wasted turn, imo.

I don't necessarily mind my proposal being turned down either so long as it gives us more of a pattern regarding who is voting what.

Okay, let's cross-reference what we have, the mission 2 votes with the mission 3.1 proposal votes, to see if any patterns are present...

3.1: Deadlokd, Crumb, ContraDeadlokdNoNoYesYesNoYesNo--
Mission 1 doesn't appear to tell us much but It actually began the process of clearing Crumb in my mind because i don't see him standing so separate from the rest of the pack as being a spy trying to blend in. His additional input appears to be pretty spot on as well. Therefore I believe he is a croissant-eating brother in arms.
I will be putting him in my proposal, regardless.

I found it a bit odd that Daphne expressed full confidence in chunks' proposal 2.1, asking myself why any actual member of the resistance would concede so easily, especially after a successful mission 1. I was of the opinion at the time that she might have done that for one of two reasons.
  1. With the conventional wisdom that one of the two players on Mission one is a likely spy and the other is likely resistance, what better way to clear at least one of them by putting two spies on the first mission? However, they wouldn't want to be together on mission 2. If they both had been on, and if both had failed the mission, one of the two would undoubtedly be a spy.
    or...
  2. Daphne was a spy and, though she was removed from the equation, one of her replacements was a spy. Therefore she was okay with chunks' proposal because she knew the mission would fail regardless.

Both Daphne and chunks voted "NO".
So did Jerome and Kael.
The fact that they all voted NO makes me feel better about Crumb and Dl.

Between chunks and Jerome, I believe one of the two Is a spy but I find it hard to believe that both are.
Both chunks and Jerome were on mission 2 yet there was only one vote to sabotage the mission.

I liked proposal 3.1

Right now I am curious as to whom those that voted "No" would suggest.

3/3 spies voted "yes" for that mission. That means that means that the likelihood that there were two resistance on it is essentially 0. All the spies would not vote for a mission with two resistance.

Because by my calculations there was only a 2/7 chance that there were two resistance on that mission. If you figure that the first leader is random and (if they are resistance) their choice for a second is also random.

This is way more complicated than I thought it was.

I don't understand how someone could fail the first mission with no justification. At the time you had no idea who would approve ort disapprove of the mission. I don't get it.

I would say I don't understand how someone could pass the first mission proposal with no justification. But it is a habit we have formed here, mostly because we are all new players. (This is only my second online game, but I learned a lot playing a game at BGG.)

Let me go through my logic. The first leader is random therefore in this game there is a 3/7 chance that they are a spy. They will likely chose a member of the resistance to go with them on mission 1 so right there 3/7 times we have a 1S+1R mission.

4/7 times the first leader will be resistance, if they pick a random player for their proposal there is a 3/6 chance that that person is a spy, so another 2/7 chance for a 1S+1R mission. That leaves only 2/7 chances of the first proposal being for a 2R mission.

Couple that base rate with every spy voting for the mission and I would say that one of chunks or daphne was a spy. Now this last changes a bit if I consider that the spies probably believe that they are expected to vote yes on a mission without a good reason. Which is certainly the style of play we have established in the first two :ff: games. But I am still sticking with either chunks or daphne being spy at this point.
