The Resistance is a party game of social deduction. It is designed for 5-10 players, lasts about 30 minutes, and has no player elimination. Players are either Resistance Operatives or Imperial Spies. For three to five rounds they must depend on each other to carry out missions against the Empire. At the same time they must try to deduce the other players' identities and gain their trust. Each round begins with discussion. When ready, the Leader entrusts sets of plans to a certain number of players. Everyone votes on whether or not to approve the assignment. Once an assignment passes, the chosen players secretly decide to support or sabotage the mission. Based on the resultes the mission succeeds (Resistance wins) or fails (Empire win). Winning three missions wins the game.
