Nomic is a game whose object is to change the rules of the game. Players score points by making new rules, changing old ones, or even getting rid of a rule completely. The outcome of the game is entirely up to the players. The only indisputable law is that you must follow the rules no matter what they are! Check out the links below for more info on how Nomic is played.

Other Nomic Games

Agora Nomic
This is one of the longest running and most complex game of Nomic on the net.

This is Minimalist Nomic. This game is a derivative of Nomic in which the initial ruleset is much smaller than that of classic Nomic. The game also follows a turn system, unlike PBEM Nomic.

Imperial Nomic (formerly known as Fascist)
This is a variation of Nomic that is run in a Fascist government, rather than a democratic one. Instead of having voters, there is an Imperial Emperor who simply decides whether to adopt a proposal. Of course, this could change.

The Nomic Society
A face-to-face Nomic being played at Dublin City University. I thank snowgod for finding this Nomic and reporting it to Ackanomic publicly.
