The Resistance (game series)
The Resistance is a very intense social deduction game for 5-10 players. Set in the near future, The Resistance pits a small group of resistance fighters against a powerful and corrupt government. The resistance has launched a series of bold and daring missions to bring the government to its knees. Unfortunately, spies have infiltrated the resistance ranks, ready to sabotage the carefully crafted plans. Even a single spy can take down a resistance mission team, choose your teams carefully or forever lose your chance for freedom.
This updated edition of The Resistance features new game art and same core game rules. Now included is the Inquisitor expansion in place of The Plot Thickens for a streamlined extended game play.
Resistance: Avalon pits the forces of good and evil against each other in a battle to control the future of civilization. Arthur represents the future of Britain, a promise of prosperity and honor, but hidden among his brave warriors are Mordred's unscrupulous henchmen. These forces of evil are few in number, but know each other and remain hidden from all of Arthur's servants. Merlin alone knows the Agents of Evil, but he should only talk about them in puzzles. If his true identity is discovered, all will be lost. Resistance: Avalon is a standalone game, and although The Resistance is not required to play, the games are compatible and can be combined.
Resistance: Coup is a stand-alone card game set in the universe of The Resistance. In a future where the government is run for profit, all but a privileged few live lives of poverty and desperation. The Resistance rises out of these oppressed masses in revolt and throws the government into chaos. To take command, you must destroy the influence of your rivals and drive them into exile. Only one can survive.
In Coup: Reformation, each player must declare himself either Loyalist or Reformist and can target only members of the other faction. Conversion is possible, however, for yourself or for another player by paying a charitable donation to the Almshouse (Treasury). Like all factions, once you have eliminated or converted the other group, you just descend into in-fighting, so there’s still only one winner and no second place. Coup: Reformation adds a new fluid team dynamic to Coup as players jostle with their allegiance to take advantage or seek protection in the early stages of the game
Avalon Big Box Edition is a very special release for fans of The Resistance: Avalon! This is a game of hidden loyalty. Players are either Good Loyal Servants of Arthur fighting for goodness and honor, or they are aligned with the Evil ways of Mordred.

If Evil sabotages three Quests, or if they assassinate Merlin at the end of the game, Arthur’s kingdom will fall.

Included are 23 distinct characters and numerous optional modules including Lancelots, Excalibur, Plot Cards, Sorcerers, and Rogues that were released as expansions for Avalon and The Resistance.
