From the creator of Cow Clicker, Simony is a medieval church politics-themed game about earning your station among a community.

Either choose an ordinary game (ludus) for free, or spend favors for a one-game bonus multiplier. Vie for the greatest rank (ordo) by playing a game of memory. At any time, use the gilded center button to complete a sequence automatically—if you have favors enough to spend. Need more? visit the market (mercatus) and pay to stock up. Unless you decide doing so would be degenerate. But then again, if everyone else is doing it, do you have a choice?

Log in to your Game Center account and earn your way to the top of the leaderboards (tabulae ducum). Compete with players of the installed version of Simony (November 17, 2012 – March 10, 2013), at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, a cultural resource of the University of North Florida. At the end of the installation, the top ten players will be invited to realize their influence by choosing how to spend the game’s proceeds on behalf of the museum.

Latin, church corruption and and an eighties classic

Why not indulge with indulgences? A blessed game.


Really beautiful. Frustrating lag, even on iPhone 5.

This game is simply the coolest, most gorgeous game of Simon Says ever. The sound is wonderful, the use of Latin classy and appropriate. However, the one thing that bugs me is that for the last couple of games, I have experienced lag of about .3 seconds for a single tile per round, which kind of ruins the whole point. All the same, even with its flaws I recommend it. Fix this lag problem and it will get 5 stars.


Can't wait to play on-site!

Minus having to take a guess at some Latin the first time around, it's great! Should be fun to see it in the Atrium.
