Lying to your loved ones
Resistance is a fun game that rewards the players who lie the best. It is very simple and leads to loads of laughs. The game truly shines when you get to play as one as a spy. It is hilarious to know who is guilty and watch the players wrongfully accuse each other of being a spy. The game plays best with 7+ people. for the price, you can't go wrong.

You Cannot Resist Us
I really enjoyed this game. It was good for gamers, and non-gamers, for friends and people new to the group.

It is possible to see the alliances and the 'talkers' to work out who the spies are. However master spies are able to convince the team not to follow through on logic even when they know who the traitors are.

Marvelous fun, especially if you are willing to engage.

Fantastic party game
I love Resistance. We used to play it with just a deck of cards, but I was enjoying it so much that I ended up buying the official version. It's easy to figure out, and games only last 10ish minutes. Everyone is always involved, and really feels like they're contributing to the game. If you're a fan of social deduction, betrayal, and secret identity games, get this.

Viva La
The Resistance is a great deception game that will prove to be incredibly difficult. Based on the number of players, a number of them will also be Spies who want nothing more than to fail the missions you all go on.

While solid in creation, other deception games have been more sought after in our group as this one favors the Spies a little too much. The game intended this to be the case however, so it's acceptable.

Overall I would recommend this game to people who love deception games with a little more depth to them.

Deduction gaming at its for the serious gamer
Resistance is deduction based game where players are either spies or resistance members and your allegiance is secret. Depending on your role you are either trying to fail or succeed missions.

As a resistance player you have to deduce the intentions of your cohorts and carefully chose who you take on a mission. Can you trust the person next to you? Why is someone being so quite or loud?

As a spy you must play the part, fail missions without revealing yourself, and provide as much misdirection as possible.

This game is great because it is relatively easy to teach and games don't take very long to play (depending on how much finger pointing goes on). Players have lots of fun trying to mislead, plead their innocence, and accuse others.

The only drawbacks are this game is best with a good moderator and playing many games can be surprisingly exhausting.

The Best Social Deduction game
Relatively easy to explain, even to gaming newbies, and so fun to play. I like social deduction games in general, but this one just makes sense to me. Unlike Werewolf/Mafia where you just point and kill, this one gives you some information to work with. The first round is obviously a stab in the dark, but after that, there is real information to debate and argue about. Not always as much fun for the timid, but quiet people win regularly as long as they are quiet in real life too. Can't have more fun with $13.

You're too quiet, you must be the spy
The Resistance is a social deduction game similar to Mafia / Werewolf, where the members of the resistance are trying to discover who the spies are.
The selling point of games like The Resistance is that they can be played with bigger groups. The Resistance allows 5 to 10 players in a game.

At the beginning of the game, each player is dealt a card that says if they are members of the resistance or spies. On each turn, the resistance goes on a mission by members elected by a leader (that changes each round) and the members of the mission secretly vote if the mission succeeds. Members of the resistance will always vote for the mission to succeed. Spies may sabotage the mission (or not, because they might not want to expose their allegiance). The resistance wins if most of the missions succeed, whereas the spies win if most missions fail.

The game also comes with extra plot cards that give players additional powers, like looking at another player's card or forcing somebody to vote openly. This allows for deeper strategy once the basic game has been mastered.
