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.

Does an image have the buddha nature if it shows the entire gameplay area at the end of a game?

Does this have the true nature?

And here is my guess:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
An image has the Buddha nature if it displays the name of the game being played.

(Honestly, I can't tell if #34 works with this guess or not...but if that image displays the name, then it doesn't do so very clearly.)

OK, so I'm not going to try to win, since I won last time, but I wanted to do some analysis, thinking out loud as it were.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
It has nothing to do with the components, punched, unpunched, hex, or otherwise. It has to do with the game title. The game title has to be visible; the rest of the box is irrelevant (35 shows this). So, what makes Caylus and Duel of Ages special? I thought it was number of words, but if so, Caylus and Caracassonne would have equal Buddha nature. Could it be number of letters? Specific ones like u? Some other thing I'm missing?


Given all that, does this image have the Buddha nature?

Is this Buddha?

I'm thinking it has something to do with place names... most of the Buddha images have a place name, real or fictional. Not sure a/b Tide of Iron or RRT's images. Caylus also seems to be a counterexample, although is Caylus really a place name, I don't know.
