Some of you may know Nomic, others probably not.
For those who don’t, in short it’s a game about changing the rules so that you can win. A longer explanation is at:
So, I’m hoping to start Stellenomic, a game of Nomic primarily aimed at old and current Stellenbosch students, but feel free to invite anyone else who may be interested.
The game should hopefully kick off on 5 Feb, but you can also join later.
Since every player usually needs to vote on each rule change, running these things by e-mail can be quite time-consuming, and irritating on your inbox. Instead, I have decided to run it on my wiki. The page for the game is at:
If you are playing in the game, it would be ideal if you could visit that site at least 4 days a week to see the new rules proposals, and to make your votes. Also, as you may see, you are welcome to quit (or join) the game at any time.
Note that to play, you really need to read the initial rules on the site.
I am currently still somewhat undecided. I really want to play, but am concerned about how much time/energy it will consume. Then again, it ought to be minimal, and I can always quit when I see it’s getting too time-intensive. (I very strongly believe I’ve made enough progress on self discipline that I would indeed be able to quit.)
