The Resistance lives on
on 9 December 2012
This game is a lot of fun among friends and family, especially if you're a competitive bunch. It's all about working out who's a spy, who's trying to cover their tracks and who's a team player. There's a lot of accusations and mistrust involved.
It's not really a 'board game', in that there's not much of a board - the cards and counters keep track of the game perfectly, and most of the action is around the table, in the social interaction that the game encourages. The components are really good quality though - I hear the new round/score tracker is much simplified over the first edition. The box is small too, so it's easily transportable.
The minimum amount of players is five - any less and it just isn't possible to have a band of resistance fighters and a spy, without it being obvious who's who. You can have up to ten players though, so it's ideal for parties and large family gatherings. And games usually last between 20 and 40 minutes, depending on how good the saboteurs are.
