You know them. They're given as gifts; purchased in shops in China town; their color might be a sickly shade of jade; maybe you can see the mold lines on them, or bubbles in the plastic; and, they come in many sizes (about a foot tall is common).

So what can you do with them when someone gives you one as a gift?

Here's a geeklist with some ideas:

Various space agencies are tracking hundreds of thousands of pieces of orbital debris from the size of a marble on up. The recent Chinese test of a satellite interceptor created some 35,000 new pieces of debris.

Who's going to notice one more?

If you get one of the small ones (a few inches high, maximum).

Use it as a Tsuro pawn.

Yea, a game where you score by actually shooting plastic bits at other player's pieces.

Here comes a one foot high plastic buddha crashing down on the fishy head of your opponent's Admiral Ackbar piece!

Yah! It's a trap!!!!

Does this game have the buddha nature?

Not without stacking up some faux stone buddhas as playing pieces!

Replace Tsuro with Sumo in the above quote. That is if your dog chewed on/you lost/you hate/whatever reason for replacing the original ones.

Some games come with their own Buddha, so you could swap Buddhas. I think that's a Buddha. It's a very good game anyway.

Imagine the Buddhas surrounded by an army of soldiers. Or vice-versa. Either one works.

Similar to the Hnefatafl idea, but think surrounded by dwarfs or surrounding trolls.
