Welcome to Emoticon Zendo Game 79.

The game is over! Hats off to Jeff for coming up with the solution:

jeffwolfe wrote:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
A koan has the Buddha nature if and only if it contains at least two emoticons, and every emoticon after the first comes from a "row" adjacent to the "row" of the previous emoticon. A "row" is each individual row of emoticons displayed by BGG at the top of the edit dialog (with "View More Emoticons" selected, if necessary.)



Thank you to Mr. Lee for his hunger inducing game 78!

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 so far:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
A koan has the Buddha nature if and only if it contains at least one "taj" emoticon and the first "taj" emoticon (from the left) is to the immediate left of an emoticon that is "round" or to the immediate right of a "corn" emoticon.

Pondering the tranquil grey skies feeling the slow change of the air around me, my mind filled with emoticons:

While looking at a plum, it seemed so perfect, yet when I picked it up, the insides gave way to rot.

Though perhaps rot has its own elegance.

Master, I want to study hard and learn the nature of the Buddha. I have pondered hard over this koan and I cannot figure out if it has the Buddha nature or not, can you enlighten me?

Master, in the far distance I can smell the nature of the Buddha, but how do I get there?
