Game 133 is over. Congratulations to Glod Glodsson, who has archieved enlightenment.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
A koan has the buddha nature if either the length of the koan is odd, and all the numbers added together are odd, or if the length of the koan is even and all the numbers added together are even


Thanks to koehn for game 132.

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:

a koan has the buddha nature if either: the number on one numbered emoticon in the koan is equal to the number of emoticons in the koan, or if the sum of all of the numbers on all numbered emoticons in the koan is equal to the number of emoticons in the koan (the koan must have at least one numbered emoticon to have the buddha nature.)

This is not correct. Your rule does not explain why the next koan is correct:
