The Resistance is a Mafia/Werewolf variant. If you're not familiar with that game, it's a party game of asymmetric information. Using the werewolf metaphor, slightly less than half the players are werewolves, and the majority are villagers; werewolves know who the other werewolves are, but villagers don't. Each "night," villagers close their eyes, werewolves open them and silently agree on what villager to kill; they close their eyes again, the gamemaster announces that it's "day," and says which villager died in the night. The villagers then vote on whom to lynch. If the last person alive is a werewolf, the werewolves win, and if all werewolves are killed, the villagers win.
