Sure I will.

As a former TIE myself, Imperial Nomic can be alot of fun if played right.
The main benefit of Impnom is that it is much faster with only one person to
decide what passes or fails.  There also is no real worry of TIE being too
heavy handed with eir decisions as obviously e must keep it fun for eir

True nomic is not necessarily better than Imperial Nomic or vice-versa.  Its
just different.  Its  a good temporary diversion as well since games or
cycles are generally much shorter in comparison to true nomic.

Count me in :)
