Indie Boards and Cards (the makers of The Resistance and Flash Point: Fire Rescue) and Bezier Games (the makers of One Night Ultimate Werewolf) are partnering to create One Night Resistance. One Night Resistance is exactly what it sounds like – a mixture between One Night Ultimate Werewolf and The Resistance. From the Kickstarter:
One Night Resistance is a super fast game of secret identities for 3 to 10 players that combines all the deductive and chaotically fun elements of the One Night Ultimate Werewolf series with structured game play of The Resistance. The result is a very addictive game that is easy to learn and will be played over and over again.
If you haven’t played One Night Ultimate Werewolf, it is a quick hidden role game. There are two sides – town and werewolves. During a ‘night’ phase, people take turns doing special actions (following a scripted app), and then during the day they try to figure out who the werewolves are. Then everyone votes to kill someone – if the majority vote for a werewolf, then the town wins, otherwise the werewolves win. One Night Resistance plays similarly, but set in the world of the Resistance, a futuristic world where the Resistance is trying to take down the Empire, but there are spies in their midst. In One Night Resistance, everyone gets an ID and a specialist role and people take turns doing their actions in a clockwise order (no app). The roles appear to be independent of allegiance, so having a specific power doesn’t necessarily make you a spy.
Backing the Kickstarter will get you some promos – 3 additional specialists: the Defector, the Rogue, and the Blind Spy. Also, if you back the Kickstarter, you can buy some of Indie Boards and Cards’ older titles as add-ons.
The Kickstarter is scheduled to deliver in September of 2015. If you’re a fan of One Night Ultimate Werewolf, The Resistance, or other hidden role games, check out the page here.
