Game 132 has ended, with Wilco achieving enlightenment:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
A koan has the Buddha Nature if all the scrabble tiles form chemical symbols. For example: CATAN: Calcium, Tantalum, Nitrogen


Thanks to Glod Glodsson for game 131.

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:

Master, may I guess that:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a koan has the Buddha nature iff it contains no Scrabble tiles worth more than 1 point?

A koan has the Buddha nature if and only if it contains no Scrabble tiles worth an even number.

Hmm. I can see where you'd get that idea, but then
PHOsPHoRuS

would not have the Buddha nature.
