every emoticon occurring has a vertical line of symmetry.


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:

a koan has the Buddha nature if and only if it does not contain the color black.

I'm glad I stopped by just to take a quick peek and see what this is - I had not heard of the Spock rule before seeing your reference in the preface! That is a great way to explain the guidelines and parameters (not just in this game, but a few other games that have loosy-goosey parameters for the "Master" role)...

There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!

The spock rule isn't my own creation, but it makes a lot of sense. Feel free to join in.

It must have three time the buddah nature. Nope, the buddah nature is infinite and therefore is difficult or easy to multiply, but this does still have the nature.

Don't hold back on that judgement too long I'm sure by the end of this I will be getting the title, 'worst master ever'.

But this Koan however, gets a thumbsup
