MetaFilter Nomic Game

MetaFilter Nomic Game. Please come over to MetaTalk if you are interested, it is still in the pre-larval alpha stage... get in on the ground floor of something excellent.

  1. Hmm. Since I haven’t actually stated any ironclad policies, even though this doesn’t feel quite right for GFi (more a forums thing), I will LET IT STAND.

    This time, curséd Meatbomb, you have bested me. THIS TIME.

  2. Also, I haven’t a clue what a Nomic game is, so you might want to elaborate a bit…

  3. Nomic! Nomic is a wonderful, terrible thing. I made a metafilter post about it once upon a time, back in the days before we had proper More Inside function on the blue judging by my first comment.

    It is, in brief, a game where modifying the rules of the game IS the game.

  4. Oi sorry stavros… no offense intended. I thought this was a game site, with a heavy MeFi membership crossover, so it seemed like exactly the right thing to be here. Indeed, I thought it was a platonic ideal for Gamefilter. :)

    But no worries, beyond this initial shilling I won’t mention it again here.

    Also, I haven’t a clue what a Nomic game is, so you might want to elaborate a bit…

    There are a bunch of links clarifying in the MeTa thread, stav. Sincere apologies for the non-kosherness of this.

  5. No, no it’s all good, let the streams cross and universes collide. If I didn’t think it were kosherish, I woulda deleted it! As it is, I get to shake my fist in Mock Shatnerian Rage, which I always enjoy!

What Is Gamefilter?

Gamefilter is a community weblog based in spirit and intent on the great work of Matt Haughey and his staff at Metafilter. It's all about sharing links to interesting stuff on the web, but with a narrower focus on gaming-related links -- good stuff that other people might not have already seen -- and talking about them.

Anyone can join for the low low price of zero dollars, and once you're a member, you have the senses-shattering power to post new stuff right from the front end of the site, and talk about that stuff in the comment threads. You don't need an account to read GFi, but as well as giving you The Power To Post, membership also lets you

  • Thank and Favorite all the goodness
  • Build a profile page with all your stuff in one convenient place
  • Send private messages and friend/follow your favorite GFites and their unstoppable Gfiltering style
  • Feel the warm glow of satisfaction in helping grow the community
  • Do all sorts of other neat things, both now and coming in the future!

Gamefilter is part of the growing MefightClub Network of sites, including our forum home, MefightClub itself, FullGlassEmptyClip, our group blog, and Ludic Research Labs, who are a bunch of bastards.

Your genial host is stavrosthewonderchicken, the miraculous poultry who built and administers the MFC Network sites, and a bunch of other web stuff as well. He has a minor addiction to building websites. He loves you all.
