That's... cheating. ;-)

If you're going to play nomic, you *have* to stick within the rules. You can, maybe even *should*, attempt to twist the intent of the rules as much as possible, but what you're suggesting above is that we ignore the rules and (effectively) start a new copy of the game with a gamestate that we like more. That's not fun, it's not elegant, and it's *not* nomic.
