Welcome to the wiki—a hub for finding games of Nomic in the wild.

What's Nomic?

Quoth Wikipedia:

Nomic is a game created in 1982 by philosopher Peter Suber in which the rules of the game include mechanisms for the players to change those rules, usually beginning through a system of democratic voting.

Where can I play it?

Agora Nomic The "Sets" Era Agora is one of the oldest and most complex nomics, running since 1993. Very complex, with many rules and strict rule interpretation Players can generally make a few moves a week, proposals pass about every other week, and winning can take from months to years (with multiple win conditions available at once usually)
BlogNomic The Old King Dynasty BlogNomic is played in Dynasties, rounds with unique style and flavor that are entirely repealed when someone wins. Moderately complex, depending on the specifics of the current dynasty Each Dynasty lasts around a month; proposals pass after 1-2 days.
Infinite Nomic The Obelisk Cycle Infinite Nomic is played in rounds (called Cycles), each started under a different ruleset engineered to allow experimentation in game design. Small rulesets, but generally textualist interpretations. Cycles last several months. Aims to only require players to check in twice weekly.
