There is not so much people in the game right now (only 3) and a little
more watching (20). Don't be shy and join!

> Some background: this is an implementation of a Nomic [2] game in Haskell(I believe the first complete implementation of a Nomic game on a

> accepted.
> But of course even that can be changed!
