' Penniless and Insane is a simple auction game with a twist: the lowest bid takes the good stuff, but the object is to run out of money.

Every player is a frustrated artist nearing the end of a wasted life. With no inspiration and a lackluster body of work, your newfound ambition is to die penniless and insane. You believe that this will make your work more valuable, which only proves you're already insane.

You spend your last few dollars buying art from students, apprentices, friends, and even total strangers. This is the artwork you hope to pass off as your own after your looming death. However, since all the talented artists are still young and idealistic, they care little for your so-called "money". In fact, the less money you offer them, the better art you will get!

The game is scored over multiple rounds. Each round consists of 3 tricks. Every player starts each round with exactly $20 in chips. To start the round, deal 3 cards to each player... and start buying (cheap) art! There are "Penniless Bonuses" and "Insane Bonuses" awarded after each round. First to 300 points wins.' ... and-insane

"The practical reason for freedom is that freedom seems to be the only condition under which any kind of substantial moral fiber can be developed — we have tried law, compulsion and authoritarianism of various kinds, and the result is nothing to be proud of." -- Albert Jay Nock, "On Doing the Right Thing", in The American Mercury (1925)

‎"Men in a state of decadence employ professionals to fight for them, professionals to dance for them, and a professional to rule them." -- G.K. Chesterton

"No man is so exquisitely honest or upright in living, but that ten times in his life he might not lawfully be hanged." -- Montaigne

"But to live outside the law, you must be honest." -- Bob Dylan

"Unjust laws can be altered, as well as made. There's a new spirit in the world. Taxed out of existence, robbed of their independence by the government, the people must fight back how they can. What we're doing here is just a pin-prick. But a thousand pin-pricks put together ... " -- Christopher Syn

"Not in the flight of thought, but in the act alone is there freedom" - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire ... Must be a yearning deep in the human heart to stop other people from doing as they please. Rules, laws — always for the other fellow." -- Robert Heinlein
