I'm planning to host a game of Nomic at around 7/20. Just want to know how many people would join and play it.
WHAT IS NOMIC?
A game with ever-changing rules from the players, decided by democratic vote

WHY PLAY NOMIC?
It requires very strong creativity, analyzation for loop-holes within the rules, and flexibility when the rules change.

NOMIC VS MAFIA?
You probably think I'm crazy--why play Nomic when Mafia tromps around and rules the Games section?
1. Nomic is impossible to master and has far, far more possibilities--while Mafia has certain roles that each have a general strategy for them (and technically if cleverbot was to play Mafia, it could always learn from each role: what to say, and what not to say). However, as the possibilities of Nomic are endless, it is impossible to fully "master" the game
2. Nomic is more fun! --You try to convince people to get rules voted on in your favor....Mafia is trying to convince people you are a certain role. I mean, as mafia, all you have to do is to role claim a power role and try to "help" town, and then the victory road goes on from there. As town, you have to try to analyze the players to see if your power can be misused, or if there are any Mafia. Indeed, it is cool to try to spot errors in the role-claim, as well as using your powers wisely. However, in Nomic, your roles are endless--be it Wizard, Mage, Knight, President, even Town...all of these are basically initially allowed, since the game has just started and is open to millions of possibilities.

So, who here's thinking of playing....NOMIC!

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I am creating a rule that only the two of us can be in this game.

I thought about starting this game before, but I didn't since I have no experience playing it. I'll join.

lol....? But then, everyone else would still have to majorly approve it because that rule wouldn't exist yet. Unless you are the only active person, in which I'd have to approve it....however, the game would get boring. Nomic is not meant to be a game of loneliness, one on one, but rather of persuasion, skilled law-making, and creativity. That rule is boring.
[and the game hasn't started yet.]

Sign ups so far: (in the order the turns are going to go in)

New players can join any time, but be warned--if the game goes too far, practically no new players can understand.

3 players is technically enough. Will there be a starting mechanic? Who's the judge? How do you plan to keep track of the rules and threads?

Nomic sounds fun!

You should probably sign up for the beginners mafia game first to show your commitment.
