Resistance is a sister to the irl Mafia, maybe you've played it at a party with friends. It's much faster than forum mafia and plays in real time, so games conclude in an hour, max, generally much less.

It's similar in that you're scumhunting, except nobody is lynched/killed, removing them from play. Instead, your goal is for the Resistance to Succeed three missions, with a possible five chances. It only takes one Spy on the mission to choose to Fail, except the fourth mission which needs two Fails. A certain number of players are voted onto these missions each time, and they then choose whether to Succeed or Fail.

Avalon is a King Arthur-inspired variant with more 'roles' including Oberon, a spy who doesn't know the other spies, Merlin, a wizard who knows all the spies but can be assassinated to allow a Spy win if he reveals himself, and Mordred, who is invisible to Merlin. We've often preferred to play this variant in the past.

We have used Skype in the past with everyone talking on it to discuss the game however this is not a requirement to play and we can go chat-only or use Discord, anything works tbh.

WHERE TO PLAY
www.theresistanceplus.com/
We've played on this site in the past when we get groups together or play with randoms.
Pokemon Showdown's Mafia Bot
The bot has a script for Resistance, uncertain if it has the Avalon expansion as well.

INTERESTED PLAYERS

Other people who have played:

WHEN TO PLAY
If we can get enough cooperative timezones maybe we can schedule having a Res fest once every week/two weeks/month. You can also feel free to ping people here or highlight them on IRC if you notice a lot of people on (and bored) at once and want to strike up a game spontaneously.
CURRENTLY SCHEDULED GAME TIMES/WHERE: none yet!

There is a pretty gentle learning curve and the games go by very quickly so it's much less weeks-long intensive than forum mafia. If you're interested in playing sign up and we can decide when/where to get games going!

Always down for this, pref. Avalon but vanilla Res is okay too. Would love to get one of those skype/disc ava games going again one time.

Thanks for signing up everyone!

Looks like we have a lot of people who evening-night is convenient for.

Do we want to try and schedule a game for this weekend?

Friday / Saturday / Sunday starting ~9pm CST since that seemed to be a pretty consistent "I'm free" time

Hopefully we could pick up some other ppl off IRC too if we're short any or someone like DLE/Bass might join

BTW I will continue to insist that Discord >>>>>> Skype, you can always use the web-client but I recommend the desktop client personally.
