Battlestar Galactica in 15 minutes Review by David
Quality

Replayability
This is a great social game with the feel of Werewolf/Mafia, minus player elimination and the need for a moderator. It's Battlestar Galactica distilled, done in 15 minutes. However, it's hard for the resistance to win, unless either: 1) they're all thinking logically, or 2) they can reliably identify the spies from "tells." That's not a knock against the game, but worth noting. (Posted on 8/15/12)
Excellent game for big groups Review by obsidian3d

The rules are simple, you can say anything you want, anytime you want. Just figure out who the spies are, or try not to give yourself away if you are one.

It's a great game with the right group, has great components, plays quickly and can be taken anywhere. I highly recommend it. (Posted on 2/1/12)
An excellent game for groups Review by KR

The resistance is one of those games that is always brought out at parties. You can play with 5-10 people and it is a fairly short game lasting usually under 30 minutes. A quick explanation of the game is that you play as either a resistance member (the good guys) or a spy (the bad guys). If you're a resistance member your goal is to have 3 completed missions. If you're a spy than your goal is to sabotage 3 missions. The game, in a sense, plays out similar to Mafia or Werewolf. The games can get heated with accusations flying around the group but that's all part of the fun. I definitely recommend The Resistance if you're looking for a good game to play with a group of people.

Good 8 person game Review by Riedsio

We've played with 8 people.

Duration is < 30 minutes. There is no text on any playing cards, so once we got the flow of the game, the game was taking more like 15 minutes.

It's accessible while still being interesting and enjoyable. It was received well by both the new and experienced gamers. (Posted on 4/12/11)

If you love mafia/werewolf, even if you loved it at one point and then got sick of it, you will really enjoy the Resistance. This is a 5-10 player game that is super easy to teach and plays quickly.

Basically, your group represents rebels looking to overthrow the government. However, hidden among you are spies. Every player takes turn being the leader and chooses some of the players from the group to participate in a mission. The entire group votes to approve the team. If the vote fails, then leadership is passed over to the next player who picks their own team. If a vote passes, then the mission group goes on the mission and plays a card face down. Heroes can only play the mission success card while spies can play either the success or sabotage card. All the cards are gathered up and mixed up before being revealed. Just one sabotage card will fail the mission.

There are 5 missions in the game, with the earlier ones comprising of smaller teams and the later ones comprising of a large mission team. If 3 missions succeeds, then the heroes win. If 3 missions fail, then the spies win. The final mission of the game usually requires the leader to pick the absolute perfect team (for example, in a game with 4 heroes and 3 spies, the final mission will require a 4-person team). This makes all decisions intense and exciting.

The game plays really quickly and usually wraps up in 30 minutes, which makes for a fantastic opener for a large group. There is also an expansion for the game included, with event cards that players can use to benefit their cause.

Overall, the game is fantastic and loads of fun. It is cheap and easy to take on the go. The only complaint I would have would be the number of cards involved. You may want to switch out some of the cards for other components like glass beads or poker chips to prevent confusion among newer gamers. (Posted on 1/18/11)
