I'm afraid not. I think t-shirts died in the major reset of Nweek 84,
during which we scaled back the rules almost as far as they could go. It
was the first time in all of B Nomic's history that the entire ruleset fit
on fewer than 10 single-sided pages.

The refresh prop at
contains the entire ruleset we put in place.

But despite the lack of rule-defined t-shirts, B Nomic t-shirts do exist!
I just checked, and Teucer's old Cafepress shop is still there. At
http://www.cafepress.com/bnomic you can buy a shirt that says "B Nomic
players do it in Public."

Ah, the good old days.

Yeah, but it's still not as much fun as coding in Python :D

I suppose we could get PIP or something
(http://www.csh.rit.edu/~jon/projects/pip/) to combine the two...

The House is a collection of Rooms, each of which has its own rules and
any number of exits to other rooms. The ideal way to represent it is as a
network of boxes or circles with lines showing the connections between
them, and I don't think we could do that with tables and divs.
