Congratulations to Juomes, who achieved enlightenment by observing that
Spoiler (click to reveal)
A koan has the buddha nature if it has [exactly] two of the following three (types of) emoticons: a camel, a star, a train.


Thanks to coolpapa for Game 118!

To see a list of all the games, see 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:

It's legit to clarify, right? Are you considering this a caravan, or the 6 different camels?

I'm going to say my last one wasn't a master, it was a clarification. So I'm taking some liberty and asking my question now.

limecamelbacon

Because everything is better with bacon.

The above is just six camel emoticons.



This is a 'caravan' emoticon:
caravan

This is 5 emoticon camels in a row that might be mistaken as the 'caravan' emoticon:
mintcamellimecamelgrapecamellemoncamelorangecamel



Unfortunately, the only way (that I know of) to tell the difference is to hit the "quick reply" button to see which of these the student chose for his/her koan. This issue can hinder Emoticon Zendo games, and (personally) I try to avoid rules that distinguish between the 'caravan' and the 5 camels that look like a caravan.
