Description taken from the Nomic Homepage:

"Nomic is an abstract, social game which uniquely demonstrates certain principles of logic, truth, and laws. The initial rules of Nomic are about how to change the rules of Nomic. Players propose new rules and change the structure of the game as it is played. To read more about the basic game, see Douglas Hofstadter's articles in Scientific American, also collected in his book `Metamagical Themas'."

[ Yes, the keywords I picked for this game are a bit arbitrary. A Nomic game might become a wargame or a sports game or an rpg. ]
