Rules Game

Setup:
There is a bag with 100 chips in it, 25 red, 25 yellow, 25 blue, 25 green. At the beginning of the game, players will receive 4 random chips from the bag.

Rules
1. Red, yellow, green, and blue chips are worth 1 point at the end of the game. Yellow chips are now worth twice as many points (2). At the end of the game, each player gains an extra point for each color of chip they have.
2. The game will consist of iterations of the following two rounds: First, the free round, lasting 48 hours, where players may submit any rule to be added to the game. Players may submit only one rule at a time. The rule can be literally anything. Then, there will be a voting round. All the submitted rules will be shown, and players will have 48 hours to vote in private whether to adopt the rule or not.
3. New rules will be adopted upon a majority vote. Whether a rule passes or not are based on the majority of people who vote on the rule, not on the majority of players. If this rule passes, it is used retroactively. If a player didn't send in anything during 1 whole round (1 rule and 1 vote) they are named and shamed and are removed from the players list and added to the shame list, any player on the shame list can join back into the game at any time by posting the following phrase:
"I am sorry for ruining the game, please forgive me!"

Also from this point onwards rules are accepted based on a majority of votes in total made on that particular rule (meaning if only 3 people voted on 1 particular rule, it would need a total of 2 yes votes to pass)
4. This game is for 7 non-anonymous players. Every time a new rules phase starts one new player may /in in the game thread to join on a first come first serve basis. Players that join this way also draw four random chips.
5. Chips may be combined into new chips each round. This is irreversible unless a future rule changes that.
Red + Yellow = Orange
Red + Blue = Purple
Red + Green = Yellow
Yellow + Blue = Green
Yellow + Green = Lime Green
Blue + Green = Teal
6. Whenever a player submits a rule that is successfully ratified, that player will receive one random chip from the bag. If the bag is empty, it will be refilled with 25 red, 25 yellow, 25 green, and 25 blue chips.
7. You may combine 4 different colored chips to make 1 black chip

All black chips are worth 1000/total number of black chips in the game (so the more black chips the more worthless they are)

Total number of black chips is publicly known: 1
8. If a player has 3 chips of the same color, they can get 1 additional chip of that color. Each player can only get 1 new chip per round this way.
9. Whenever a player votes yes to a rule that doesn't pass, or votes no to a rule that does pass, they receive an indigo chip.
10. Players are allowed to trade chips. An offer must be made in the thread, upon which the other player must quote the offer and say ACCEPTED in bold.
11. All players' chip counts are public.
12. All requests for additional chips must be made publicly. The granting of chips will also be announced publicly if the requirements are met.
13. If a player's rule passes with at least double the amount of "yes" votes as "no" votes, that player is granted an additional extra chip.
14. The player with the most teal chips gets five bonus points. If another player ties their amount, then both players get five bonus points. If a player no longer has the most teal chips or is no longer tied for the most teal chips, then they lose the five bonus points they had previously been awarded under this rule.
15. Anyone with a green chip, no chip, or combined chip gets another vote (one more vote per voting round).
16. During Free Rounds, players who are not in may submit rules to put in the Rule Market. There may only be 5 rules in the Rule Market at a time. If 5 rules are already in the Rule Market, players cannot submit additional rules. Once per Free Round, instead of making a rule, a player may take a rule from the Rule Market. If they do, that rule disappears from the Rule Market and becomes their submitted rule. If a rule chosen from the Rule Market passes, the player who made the rule gets any rewards, in addition to the player who chose the rule. Any chips gained by this method will be made inactive, and cannot be used unless they join in via another rule, in which case they gain any chips they would've gotten. At the end of a given Free Round, the Rules Market is cleared.
17. All players are split into two teams randomly
18. A player may choose to abstain from voting on a rule in order to go fishing in any BIOMES that can be fished in. A player may abstain from as many rules as they want to and gain 1d6-4 (with all values below zero counting as one) rolls on that BIOME's fishing table. The results can be good or bad and each roll the player gets a random result.

BIOMES included in this rule:
Players:
* When Rolling to fish in this biome you gain one trading card with a random player's username, Current title, and avatar.

WIKIPEDIA:
When you roll this fishing table the mod clicks the random page on Wikipedia and you gain a chip named after the Wikipedia article. Chips generated in this way have no color and cannot be combined

OCEAN:
FISHING TABLE
a shark bites you and you lose one random chip
a squid squirts ink and one of your chips becomes back
You catch a tuna
You catch an octopus
You catch an anglerfish
You catch a lobster

The game ends when one of the following conditions is met:
1. Whenever a player has any chips and all other players have no chips, they win the game.
2. The first player to get 100,000 points wins! In addition, the player with the most points wins in addition to whoever wins, via any win condition.

Note:
Trolling this will be fun for 5 seconds. Winning this will bring eternal glory.

When you say one rule at a time you mean per round?

Hmm, I notice that there's no win/game end conditions, is that because it's something that needs to be submitted as a rule?

I've started with an actual serious rule but I'd be down for voting a silly one if someone put it in haha

I was thinking the same thing because eventually a win condition has to be voted on.

I like rules that slowly build on top of each other and eventually interact in mysterious and unexpected ways.

I propose that we make a rule that points can be scored by cashing in chips

With multipliers from having multiple chips of the same colour or groups of different colours
