Movies The Resistance - Game Thread



I have randomized the player list. This table it the order that leadership will move. Adam will be the first leader.

#Player 
1Adam*Leader*
2SR71 
3Kael 
4Gonzo 
5Jerome 

In a game of five players there are three resistance and two spies. All players should already have a PM telling them which team they are on.

The resistance operatives will all receive this:
Quote:
You are a resistance operative. Your goal is to complete three successful missions.
For a game with five players, this is the layout of how big each mission team will be for the five missions:
MissionTeam
12
23
32
43
53

So the first step is for Adam to propose the two player team for the first mission. All the other players should feel free to discuss and suggest here publicly in the thread.

Game related PMs are not allowed between the players.

I'm going to need to see a resume, Gonzo. We're looking for applicants with at least 2 years' practical experience in blowing things up. Typing skills a plus.

Crumb, two questions:

Do the spies know each others' identities?

If a spy gets onto a mission, can they choose not to sabotage it? I'm guessing yes, only because otherwise there's no point in having people actually send you night actions, since you'd already know what everyone would do.

Can you put me last on the list for leader? I already don't know what is going on. This is going to be painful. I have no concept of how this kind of game works. Oh wait, I get it, Adam is in charge for first mission, and there are two spies, but we only know who we are, not anybody else. And you can't just ask point blank. Plus what adam and crumb said. OK, the spies know each other. ANyway, this blows, I have to go to work now.

Right, which just means that he will select the first candidates for the mission. All of you will vote on his mission plan once it is proposed. If it is not passed then you will propose two other people. I think you will be able to handle it. :)

SR, usually in these kinds of game, it's not kosher to edit your posts. Too much room for abuse, i.e. maybe someone slips up and says something incriminating, and then edits their post to remove it.

Do you have a specific question? :chin:

The idea is that you don't want to send the spies on missions, so if you can identify the spies and not send them on the missions you win. If the spies can get themselves on enough missions to sabotage them, then they win.

Gonzo just signs up, willy-nilly, for any game posted in the Colosseum. He probably couldn't remember which one this was, is all.

OK, I shall try to refrain from the edit abuse, as well as the slipping up.

He can ask whatever he wants. I don't think there are rules on what you have to answer.

OK. I will just say that if I was a spy, I would answer no. If I wasn't a spy, I would still answer no. You know what we/they do to spies right? That's right, boodah boodah.

Is it a given that Adam is not a spy?

From what I understand, it is not a given that anyone is not a spy. The starting leader is essentially chosen at random and the position of leader will cycle through everyone, spy and rebel alike. Plz to see Crumb for any necessary addendums or clarifications.

Kael is correct. Feel free to ask questions here. The only other important rule is that you cannot quote or pretend to quote private communications from me.

OK. Is anybody still here? I got lost over in some thread. Don't be afraid to tell me when I am screwing up the gaming etiquette, because I don't know it. Are we gonna play tonight or is it too late?

You are playing now, feel free to suggest to Adam who he should send on the mission. He will put forward his picks and then you can vote on them. The first mission is likely to be rather arbitrary, but that doesn't mean it might not warrant some discussion.

I'll just take a back seat and leave it up to the pros. It would seem like a good idea to leave me in the rear with the gear. I'll just monitor the radio, listen, and learn. I'll be cleaning my rifle, if you know what I mean.
