Let's play Zendo with BGG images.

Add a game and I will tell you if it has the BUDDHA NATURE!

Or, more specifically, if the image that you chose for that game has the buddha nature. This is a clue that the buddha nature has nothing to do with mechanics, etc... but just applies to the physical components.

Sorry - there is no prize for figuring out the "rule". This is just for fun.

I'll start with an image that follows the rule, and you folks can take it from there. I'll try to check back often to judge the new images.

I just want to be clear that the rule applies to an image, not a game. If the rule is "game uses pawns" and you add chess but the photo doesn't show the pawns, then it does not have the buddha nature!

*----EDIT----*
If you'd like to guess the rule, make your guess as a comment on the image that you posted.

The master of each round is encouraged to give a small GG reward to the student who guesses the rule first.

The "winner" of a round becomes the new master and should think of a new rule and post another image to get the whole game rolling again.

Current round (as of the time of this edit) starts here.

The BGG Image Zendo Player microbadge has been approved! You can purchase it here.

Very well. Animals are now part of a previous incarnation. *This* image has the Buddha nature. [Warning: The new master will be going into his nightly "meditation" in a few minutes and will not be around until 9;00EST tomorrow]

Is this image imbued of the Buddha nature, oh most wise and patient master?

If so, my suggestion of rule would be:
