This went from not getting a lot of play to seeing the table a lot with larger groups. It's replaced Secret Hitler in terms of social deduction games and it doesn't force anyone to really lie overtly. Seems easy at lower player counts.

It takes social deduction and actually gives useful information to the players. A mix between mysterium and resistance.

Non-boardgamer friends love this. I wish it came out more often. Don't see the need to get the expansion until it's hitting regular rotation.

Mysterium meets Resistance, as player assume hidden-roles and try to oust the murderer/accomplice based on somewhat abstract clues from the mute forensic scientist. There isn't much structure to the game, which helps facilitate the discussion and debate amongst the players. I prefer Mysterium, but given it's surprisingly quick play time, it lends itself more to the filler space anyway.

Neat social deduction game that blends The Resistance and Mysterium. Played a 4 player game just to get the feel and mechanics of the game down and I don't see this playing well with less than 6. Definitely a large party game for gamers, but easy enough for newcomers to grasp. Between this and Secret Hitler, I see The Resistance getting booted from my collection...

(9/16) 8. Fantastic party game that is a little more involved than the usual fare. (9/17) Raise to 9. Consistently a hit whenever I bring it out. Playing with the accomplice more has really added to the fun.
