The Resistance is a game where players attempt to deduce one another's identities. It is similar in structure to party games such as Mafia and Werewolf, where a small, informed minority attempt to mislead a larger, uninformed majority. The Resistance uses slightly different mechanics from similar games, and was designed explicitly to avoid player elimination and increase available information for decisionmaking.
Games take upwards of half an hour, and are played with 5 to 10 players. The published version of the game includes a board to track progress, role cards, voting cards, mission success/failure tokens, and additional game-modifying plot cards. The Resistance is regarded as more complext than similar party games, giving the players more information and opportunity for deception.
I actually met Travis Worthington from Indie Boards and Cards last week, at Gen-Con (IB&C is the publisher of The Resistance). He's a really nice guy. Also, my friend won the tournament (part of the winning team in the last game), so he won every game IB&C produces next year!
Arismendy Alcantara doubled and Javier Baez singled. Baez also struck out twice. Brett Jackson led off, and walked once and K'ed thrice. Iter Vehemens ad Necem. Justin Bour singled, and Rubi Silva walked.
Another boring pitcher alert. Felix Pena allowed a run in 2 innings. Brian Smith went 2 scoreless, and Al Yellon (I mean Al Yevoli) went 3 scoreless innings. Sheldon McDonald allowed a trio of runs in 2 innings. 7 hits! Ugh.
Too much to list.
