  • Good for large groups. Not good if your bad at reading people. But can still have fun even when you lose. Similar to Werewolf, mafia, or Bang.Hoatzin23June 14th, 2016 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Very fun deduction/bluffing party game if you have the right group (which is the case for all party games). I wouldn't play it with 5, though. 7-10 players is where it's the best.oldhossFebruary 7th, 2013 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Fantastic party game that's as serious as you want to make it.ChronokillJanuary 15th, 2013 10 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Great game. It's just a perfectly undiluted bluffing game, and most of the people I've played with have just taken to it so readily that it shocks me. Hard to stop playing.LaboratoryFestivalNovember 19th, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • The bluffiest, deductioniest, discover-your-friends-are-much-better-liars-than-you-though-iest party game there is. Short and oh so sweet. I've played 6 games back to back. This game is genius.CunningAllusionmentJuly 27th, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Very short deception/bluffing game, akin to werewolf without the need for a narrator or player elimination. Great fun but only with the right people. Included expansion helps resistance.carbonfiber25July 26th, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • The Resistance is a short game (30') in which players have to bluff and deceive each other in order to make their team win. It's a very fun game, which has quickly become one of our favorites.MishuloJuly 24th, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • While the argumentative and accusatory nature of the game might turn some away, with the right crowd this game is an absolute blast, and often gets played many times in succession.BuddytheRatJuly 23rd, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
