Congratulations to Wilco, who found the rule:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Koan has the Buddha nature if it is length 4 or it contains an emoticon with value 4.

Thanks to all who played!

Thanks to senseless for Game 114!

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

See also the Emoticon Zendo Wiki. (Everyone is encouraged to keep the wiki page up to date, especially those who master or win a game.)!

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:

A koan has the buddha nature if it contains multiple types of emoticons (i.e. not all scrabble tiles or d10s), at least one number, and all emoticons with numbers are consecutive. (The emoticons are in a string, not the numbers themselves.)

(Edit: I merely changed the judging order -- I prefer that the koans appear to be judged in the order they were received)

Headed to bed and this'll likely be solved before I wake up, so I'll guess now and see if I get lucky.

My dear student, your guess is not correct. Perhaps a night's rest will help you to find the true Buddha-nature...

The Master notes that if this sentence-koan truly is completely random, then it is quite a coincidence that the sentence came out as such. Perhaps the Buddha-nature is at work...
