Hi Haskellers,
in case you didn't see it on Reddit (sorry for cross-posting):

I released Nomyx V1.0 <http://www.nomyx.net/>!
Nomyx is a unique game where you can change the rules of the game itself
while playing it.
The major novelty in this version is that you can play even without knowing
how to program. There is a library of rules that are ready to be proposed.

A match is going on on the theme "Foundation" (and we need more players).
Please join!

You can login here: http://www.nomyx.net:8000/Nomyx
The games are discussed on the mailing list: nomyx-game at googlegroups.com

Here is a video introduction of the game: http://vimeo.com/58265498
I created a tutorial to learn how to play:

Some background: this is an implementation of a Nomic [1] game in Haskell
(I believe 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

But of course even that can be changed!

Cheers, Corentin
