"Crazy-Intense Fun"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This has become one of my favourite games. It has the perfect blend of intense strategy, competitive role-play, poker-faced interrogation and good old-fashioned imaginative fun. If you think you can out-act, out-smart or simply out-argue your friends, this is your game. Bound to make enemies out of friends, allies from enemies and hours of fun, The Resistance is an adventure you'll want to do over and over again – even if it is just for you and your best friend to finally be the bad guys together.

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.

This updated edition of The Resistance features new game art and same core game rules. Now included is the Inquisitor expansion in place of The Plot Thickens for a streamlined extended game play.

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.
