Oh, man, here we go again.

I like:

Spoon (or variations thereof)
Gin and Nomic with a Twist of Lime
A Nomic (like it says at the top of the page)

What's the deal with "Cimon" and "Cimonomic"?

I'm beginning to think that the only reason we need a name is to facilitate 
reference to our game in extra-game contexts, i.e. on the NNBB or the 
apparently-defunct internomic list. Internally, we know what game we're 
talking about. (So I guess Josh has converted me somewhat.)


Play Nomic!
