A Nomic game in Haskell--> The game
--> The forum
Nomyx is a unique game where you can change the rules of the game itself, while playing it! In fact, changing the rules is the goal of the game. Changing a rule is considered as a move. Of course even that can be changed! The players can submit new rules or modify existing ones, thus completely changing the behaviour of the game through time. The rules are managed and interpreted by the computer. They must be written in the Nomyx language, based on Haskell. This is the first complete implementation of a Nomic game on a computer.
At the beginning, the initial rules are describing:
- How to add new rules and change existing ones. For example a unanimity vote is necessary to have a new rule accepted.
- How to win the game. For example you win the game if you have 5 rules accepted.
Here is a video introduction and first tutorial of the game.
The game is running here
The Forum is used to learn about Nomyx and discuss the rules during a game.
There is a lot of examples of rules you can propose.
The Castle Builders
The development version is available on GitHub.
To install using cabal:
$ cabal install Nomyx
To create a new game, you need to be admin. Input the password in the advanced page. The default password is "NXPSD". Then on the main page you will be able to create a new game. The forum is used to discuss the on-going games.
