Reviews around board (5.00 of 5)

  • These are the ingredients to a great board game that Avalon has
  • Literally the best board game I have ever played, out of hundreds
  • - Packaged well with no damages whatsoever - also a really fun board game!
  • Probably the best board game I've ever played, if you can get 6 or 7 friends to play, it can be some of the most fun you'll ever have.
  • Probably one of my favorite board games ever, even though it's not technically a "board" game.

Reviews around group (5.00 of 5)

  • but I suggest a group of 6-7 or more if you would like to play with the other characters
  • Regardless, with the right group of people, this game is absolutely amazing.
  • This game has extreme replay value with the right group of people.
  • The game does require a larger group to play and works best with people who actively want to discuss and engage in deductive reasoning.
  • My group really enjoys this game and we play it for hours at a time!We liked this one better than the original Avalon because the characters fit better together and compliment each other a lot better

Reviews around version (4.59 of 5)

  • We hadn't played the original Resistance, but we love this version of the game.
  • The bottom line is, Avalon the best version of The Resistance
  • If you like playing Mafia or Werewolf, this is a much better version of that type of game.
  • The different roles make it better than the futuristic version of Resistance.
  • I think I like this version better because of the different char cards with abilities as opposed to just being "blue" or "red

Reviews around deduction (4.49 of 5)

  • I think this is a slight (but not significant) deduction of a point for Avalon
  • Challenging deduction game/lying game for 5-10 people
  • A great Social Deduction game- much better than Mafia or Werewolf!
  • If you like bluffing games and social deduction you will love this game
  • As a self-proclaimed Slytherin, I enjoy playing games that require a fair amount of cunning: social deduction, persuasion, and secrecy

Reviews around resistance (4.21 of 5)

  • And, the way the various voting cards and game pieces are designed is a significant improvement over the easy to confuse original Resistance set up
  • I prefer the original Resistance after playing Avalon with some friends
  • We loved the original resistance and played it frequently
  • We play Resistance all the time, even though I hate it because I am accused of being the spy every round.
  • Resistance AvalonTeamwork, deception, and betrayal

Reviews around play (4.00 of 5)

  • Literally the best board game I have ever played, out of hundreds
  • It is fun to pretend to be these characters in one game and in thirty minutes play another game and be someone else...maybe Merlin!
  • And if a good ~25 plays is enough for you before you lose interest, well... this game is only $15.The problem is, unlike most bluffing games, this one deals with a surplus of facts
  • Word of warning, if played right, it can be quite intense.
  • This game is one of the best party games I've ever played

Reviews around time (3.63 of 5)

  • so my friends and I love this game -- we have now played for 2 nights for about 2 hours each night and every game is different -- we laugh and have a good time -- depending on the number of players it is different each time -- the more players (up to ten) the better
  • I played the original Resistance at lunch with friends a few times, and enjoyed it so much that I wound up buying both the original version and this one
  • That way everyone can play with a clear conscience and have a good time
  • The dynamic of the participants is important and this game can be a heck of a good time.
  • It would take too much valuable time to deceive you and to say this is an actually good game.

Reviews around avalon (3.25 of 5)

  • Avalon is The Resistance with the Hidden Agenda expansion seamlessly integrated plus a new coat of paint.
  • All that aside, if you do enjoy this type of game, Avalon is certainly one of the best versions out there
  • The resistance: Avalon is a very interesting party game to play for 5-10 people, and works best for 7-8 people
  • That's not to say The Resistance isn't fun (it is), but having played quite a few games of both, I prefer Avalon
  • If you are trying to decide between Resistance (Standard) or Avalon, they are both great

Reviews around success (2.75 of 5)

  • Good must play successes for the quests they are on, but evil may play success or fail
  • IF THIS STEP IS REPEATED 5 CONSECUTIVE TIMES, THE MINIONS WIN.-Players on team (if approved) are given 1 success & 1 fail card.
  • Good must play successes for the quests they are on, but evil may play success or fail
  • My only knock on the game is that the Success/Failure cards are a little too similar for my tastes (A stronger contrasting image between the success and failure), and that it doesn't have enough 'roles' to really justify purchasing this game if you've already bought the Resistance
  • If the vote passes then members of the team are given a "success" and "failure" card, which they have to chose one to lay (good can only lay success, evil can lay success or failure).

Reviews around friend (2.47 of 5)

  • Throughout is intense discussion, accusations, and deception - you won't be able to trust your friends after a few rounds
  • But if you are OK with that, it's a great game and you can really learn how to figure out your friends when they lie to you
  • Deep game with great replay value, but be prepared to lose some friends
  • so my friends and I love this game -- we have now played for 2 nights for about 2 hours each night and every game is different -- we laugh and have a good time -- depending on the number of players it is different each time -- the more players (up to ten) the better
  • I wish I could play it nonstop, but unfortunately I've back-stabbed my friends too many times in this game and now no one will play with me

Reviews around friendship (2.18 of 5)

  • It's got a bit of s leaning curve
  • If you enjoy deceiving people, lies, slander, and almost ruining friendships (but they get better in the end) this is the game for you.
  • This game destroys friendship like monopoly
  • This game will ruin friendships

Reviews around player elimination (1.00 of 5)

  • It has an advantage over similar hidden role type games likes mafia or werewolf in that there is no player elimination, so everyone stays involved until the end
  • This game is quite similar but without player elimination and with more opportunities to deceive and be deceived
  • This is a fun character deduction game in the vein of Mafia or Werewolf, but without the player elimination.
  • If ever a game had the potential to pack an incredible social game experience in a box, The Resistance is exactly that - a superb social game, very similar in feel to the well-known Mafia or Werewolf, but arguably better because there is more deduction and no player elimination
