    I didn't think anybody would get it. It's something I tried in a game once before and nobody noticed, though it wouldn't have mattered in that game. But as soon as I posted that here I got all super nervous that everybody would know I was a spy. The sentence structure stood out to me as too unnatural, but I'm the one that posted it so I knew it was forced.


    I guess it didn't matter since I talk a lot of nonsense anyways.

    I tried to vote opposite to the other spies to ensure no one found a link between us, besides Mission 5 was always gonna win for us as there's a few players who simply vote yes on everything.

    Props to Artful for catching me out, although in hindsight it seemed really obvious (and that wasn't even the first thing I'd considered posting!)

    Funny what Dex pointed out though, especially about the last mission - he must have been slapping his hand against his head so many times during this game. I'd suggest that Dex took part in the next resistance game but then again he might end up with a massive advantage?
    Hah, I doubt it. I would bet that the reason I caught a lot of what I did was that I already knew who to look for. Regardless, I think I'm going to take a break from moderating. Whoever else wants to step up, go for it. Classic Werewolf or Resistance--either way, I'm in.

    If somebody had picked up on it, you guys would have been screwed. It would have outed both you and Byronic Man as Spies, and also given the information that there was a second Spy on Byronic Man's mission, meaning noobspoon, Flamoctapus, and djnealb would all have been clear.

    But yeah, you usually just speak nonsense and gibberish, so I don't think anybody batted an eye at it.

    To you it was obvious I'm bad, but that's because it was obvious to everybody that Dodger was good after he outed Muck. You knowing you're good narrows it down to just me, so yeah.

    I'm going to be honest that I've had some gnarly shit going on with my family and work over the last week or two so my head wasn't entirely in it.

    I honestly did think ZP was a spy and misread the team choice (didn't think he was in that final team)... that was my fuck up, sorry guys.

    Tis no bother - your message was necessary for us to win that mission. It was for a good cause.

    Besides, your voting habits were vital for me to try to incriminate Flam, which I needed to do to lever myself onto further teams.

    Really thought this might be too on the nose, but then Muck asked Byron to pass and got himself outed.
    Never in a million years would I have noticed that!

    Quote Originally Posted by Dexter345 View Post

Even if you guys had figured out which person on the mission was a Spy (33% chance to guess for those off, 50% for those on, so not even a sure thing), it's still 1 point for the Spies, so if every Spy could sabotage a mission and give himself away in the process, the Spies would still win.

    The next thing that I thought was TOTALLY CRAZY of you people was to blacklist the first three players since the first mission failed. The only situation where that would be a good idea would be if all three of them were bad guys, but then if that were the case, they probably wouldn't have formed that mission. Even if two of the three of them were bad guys, that would require perfect choosing of the players off the first mission, since there would only have been four good guys among those off the mission. If there was only one bad guy on the first mission (which was the case), then blacklisting the first mission participants guarantees that the second mission will have a Spy on it.

    But that wasn't the biggest screwup for the Resistance.

    Proposal 2.2, proposed by Analoge: Flamoctapus, noobspoon, Byronic Man, Muckfoot
    ZombiePlatypus - FOR
    Artful-dodgeR - FOR
    Analoge - FOR
    Flamoctapus - AGAINST
    noobspoon - FOR
    djnealb - AGAINST
    Byronic Man - FOR
    Muckfoot - AGAINST

    Here is the biggest thing that everybody missed, though truly, it wouldn't have mattered if anybody caught it, because Artful made a HUGE flub on this one, by not taking the time to consider things. After he sent in this vote, I even told him that it was a terrible move. Why? Because not only was there at least one Spy on this mission, but Artful-dodgeR should have been able to know that unequivocally before the votes came in. Artful-dodgeR was a Resistance member. There are five total Resistance members. From his point of view, there are two possibilities:

    1. Analoge is also a Resistance member. In this case, only three other players are Resistance members. Since Analoge was pressured into not including herself on the mission (terrible idea, by the way), that meant that no matter who she chose, there would be at least one Spy in the group, because there aren't even four other Resistance members to pick from.
    2. Analoge is a Spy. In this case, she would pick a group with a Spy on it.

    The reason I bring this up is that if Artful-dodgeR had thought that one out to its logical conclusion, then it would have been much more obvious that ZombiePlatypus is a Spy. He also voted FOR a mission which he would have no logical reason to vote for unless he were a Spy.

    Artful-dodgeR did redeem himself a little bit by later picking out Muckfoot as a Spy. But I think djnealb should have been the one to figure that out.

    Proposal 1.1, proposed by ZombiePlatypus: ZombiePlatypus, Artful-dodgeR, Analoge
    ZombiePlatypus - FOR
    Artful-dodgeR - FOR
    Analoge - FOR
    Flamoctapus - FOR
    noobspoon - FOR
    djnealb - AGAINST
    Byronic Man - AGAINST
    Muckfoot - AGAINST

    Mission 1 results: PASS, PASS, FAIL

    Proposal 3.1, proposed by Flamoctapus: Flamoctapus, noobspoon, Byronic Man, Muckfoot
    ZombiePlatypus - FOR
    Artful-dodgeR - FOR
    Analoge - FOR
    Flamoctapus - FOR
    noobspoon - FOR
    djnealb - FOR
    Byronic Man - FOR
    Muckfoot - FOR

    Mission 3 results: PASS, PASS, PASS, FAIL

    With the above information, you can see three people go on a mission and have one fail, then four completely different people go on another mission and have one fail. To outsiders, the two possibilities are that either djnealb (the one person who hadn't been on a mission) was a Spy, OR one of those missions had two Spies on it. To djnealb, he should KNOW that one of those missions had two Spies on it, and one had one Spy. So he could have been the one to go back and see how the Spies could have coordinated one FAIL in a two-Spy mission. Still, Artful picked it up, so this wasn't a huge loss.

    In the end, I didn't see anything incriminating that Byronic Man did, so it would have been a tossup. But for the very last mission, it is unwise to simply accept the first proposal that comes along. Remember, voting records are some of the most important pieces of information, and by not always voting FOR stuff, you get the opportunity to see more voting records.

    Proposal 4.2, proposed by djnealb: Artful-dodgeR, Analoge, noobspoon, djnealb, Byronic Man
    ZombiePlatypus - AGAINST
    Artful-dodgeR - AGAINST
    Analoge - FOR
    Flamoctapus - FOR
    noobspoon - FOR
    djnealb - FOR
    Byronic Man - AGAINST
    Muckfoot - FOR

    One last note that I thought was kind of funny. Muckfoot could have won the game for the Spies much sooner if he had voted AGAINST here. If djnealb's proposal hadn't gone through, then Byronic Man could have proposed a team with all three Spies on it. If that got shot down, Muckfoot could have proposed a team with all three Spies on it. If that got shot down, ZombiePlatypus could have proposed a team with all three Spies on it. Since that would have been Proposal 4.5, the Resistance members would have to accept that proposal, or face automatic defeat. That's one of the dangers of having all of your Spies in a row; even if you knew who they were at that point, it would have been a loss.
    Thanks very much for this write up. A very interesting analysis.

    Also I'm great yaaay.

    If no one have any ideas or doesn't want to run the next game I don't mind doing it - it'll either be another resistance game or a classic werewolf, no over powered eccentricity game this time!

    Let me know whether you'd prefer to host and what game type you'd want.

    Update: we'd need someone new to sub in for artful for a resistance game - where'd that new guy go?

    Rad, that's eight!

    Should I wait for anyone else? I can pretty much get this game started in a few hours, it's 14:30 over here and I'll finish work in around three hours time. So that many hours. Yeah.

    Did Artemis ever show back up? I say wait a bit. The last game just ended yesterday and Dex said that the Resistance games are good for up to 10 players.

    I was just going to say that. Yeah, Resistance plays 5-10. I'll have to forward you the missions schedules if we get 1-2 more people, because they are slightly different depending on the number of players. Also, people expressed interest in Plot Cards? I usually don't play with them, because they make the game too easy for the Resistance a lot of the time, but it might be what it needs for play-by-forum since we're also lacking a lot of the benefits you'd get from face-to-face play.
