I think I would really like this game if everyone I know didn't hate it.
2012-01-25: Upped from an 8 to a 10. Loads of fun, all the time. 2012-03-21: Too much of a good thing. While by no means "played out", this has been overplayed in my local circles, and needs some time to breathe. Downgraded from a 10 to 7.5.

It's the spies game to lose. And they hardly ever do.

Rebels trying to destroy the evil empire while searching for the imperial saboteurs within their ranks. Negotiation, deduction and hidden betrayal. May be replaced by One Night Ultimate Werewolf, although I really like the simplicity of The Resistance... It just isn't as fast or as flexible. My rating for this game has become so low because of all of the metagame rules that have to be explained. It’s just a pain.
avalon and secret hitler are much better. only thing going is the theme of resistance.
Not having roles actually makes the game harder to understand for new players as they are lost without the structure. Needs expansions.

I think this is probably a better hidden-role traitor game than ONUW, but harder to get a group to sit down for and they scratch the same itch.
The game where everyone says they're innocent
*** I play this using standard playing cards *** (+) Plays quick, easy to teach, interesting deduction, does what it sets out to do really well (-) Forces you to convincingly lie (personal preference), some people can be left out of missions and discussions entirely (+/-) Needs the right group

Our go-to bluffing game when we get the whole family together (the full 10 players). Can't say enough about the fun of lying to you mother-in-law's face and knowing it'll be okay! This has been replaced by Secret Hitler in our group!

A fun hidden team game. The first mission is a toss up though and I wish there was a way that could be more interesting.

(7/16) 7. (9/17) Rise to 8. Probably the granddaddy of hidden role games. A classic that I really enjoy.
