Welcome to Emoticon Zendo Game 100!

This game is over. Congratulations to Trollkin for discovering that a koan has the Buddha-nature if and only if
Spoiler (click to reveal)
the number of (intact) eyes in its emoticons is even.


Thanks to iorlas for game 99!

To see a list of all the games, click here.

See also the Emoticon Zendo Wiki. (Winners are encouraged to update the wiki page with their result.)

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.
-"Buddha" is not spelled "Buddah".

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:

Okay, I'll jump the gun.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
A koan has the Buddha-nature if and only if it contains an even number of pirate emoticons.

Sorry. Consider this koan, which despite its varied emotions, does possess the Buddha-nature:

Fine, if you're going to remove the Meeple, I might try something different.
