The Resistance - a new look coming soon
We posted some information about the new look coming for The Resistance - and now that this new look is almost here we wanted to give you the full details!
What has changed?
The Resistance has a new look - we've upgraded almost all of the illustrations: new card art, new tableau art, new box art. The game has a cleaner look across the board and illustrations fit better to the new art that Jarek Nocon has done for us in the Resistance expansions, One Night Revolution and Coup games. These art changes are also being made to some of the character cards in the reprint of The Resistance: Hidden Agenda.
And we are replacing the "Plot Thickens" expansion with the "Inquisitor" expansion. The Plot Thickens was introduced in the development of the game as a way to better balance the win rates at larger counts and introduce variability from game to game. The downside was that this expansion was a significant step up in complexity from the base game. The Inquisitor was developed after the release of The Resistance, and introduces the same partial information that balances game play with significantly less complexity.
As The Resistance is getting more and more mainstream it made a lot of sense to include an expansion that met the changing needs of our customers.
When does this change happen?
The new look Resistance will start to appear in stores soon and it will be the version that we ship if you "add-on" The Resistance to your pledge rewards. If you wanted to get the older version, please visit your local gaming store or online vendor quickly - the older version of The Resistance has been out of stock at the publisher and distributor levels for over a month. What is out there right now is the older version but once those are gone, there won't be any more ;)
As there is no change in the product codes between versions - some online vendors may experience a period of time with mixed inventory starting in mid-June. So again, if you order right away you should be getting the older version, if you wait you may get the newer version even if the online images so the older (or vice-versa).
Of course the easiest way to ensure you get the version you want is to buy in person and look at the box!
Thank you again for your support and your help in making The Resistance such a popular game.
