Welcome to Emoticon Zendo Game 53.

This game has ended. The correct rule was given by Jpwoo:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
A koan has the buddah nature if and only if the second to last emoticon contains a number.


Thanks for playing!

To see a list of all the games, click here.
See also the Emoticon Zendo Wiki.
Consider the Spock rule.

Emoticon Zendo Rules:
-All BGG users start with exactly one guessing token.
-There is no "Mondo" -- there is only "Master" and guessing
-There are no turns, but no one user may do "master" (asking about a koan) two consecutive times (i.e. he must wait for another player to do "master" in between). A user may "guess" the rule twice consecutively only if there was a "master" from another user, and at least an hour has passed since the first guess. A user may do a "master" and then make a guess consecutively.
-Your first guess is free. Additional guesses cost 1 GeekGold. The GG should be submitted as a tip to this thread. The student with the first correct guess (the winner) will win all the GG as a prize.
-Please thumb the main thread if you participate.

Emoticon Zendo Conventions:
-Koans are built from a single line of emoticons. No letters/numbers/etc.
-The 2nd emoticon from the left is in 'position #2', etc.
-I will use thumbsup and thumbsdown to answer each "master", so please don't use these emoticons in your Koan.

Here is an example of a Koan of length 4 which has a smiley face in position #3:

Guesses:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
A koan is of the buddah nature if and only if, it contains one or more emoticons containing numbers and the last number-oticon is either preceded by another number, or is followed by one and exactly one non number-oticon.

Yay I'm first! Good luck everyone.

Can you enlighten us about this Master?

Although it left me feeling sort of sad, this koan did find enlightenment.

Enlightenment is found by combining in this way.
