Why is there no Word Games Forum or Subdomain?

There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!

I remember seeing somewhere a list of names for particular types of koans (usually independant of color). There were pictures of koans with captions. I found it to be a convenient shorthand for describing koans (which is not to say that they should be used in the master's rule).

But I don't remember where I saw this. I looked in the files and the links, and I don't see it anywhere. Do any of you know where this list is?

I remember (perhaps not entirely accurately) it included names such as "Snowman" - a tower of a large, medium, and small, in that order; "Santa Hat" - an upright large with a wierd medium on the tip, and a wierd small on the tip of that; etc.

Where was this?

I'm not aware of the illustrated list of formations you're remembering; sorry. All I know is that for most pyramid games, a tree is a small on a medium on a large, and a nest is a large on a medium on a small.

OK, here are some other places you may want to look:

The Icehouse.org page for Zendo.

The Icehouse.org page for Zendo jargon.

The official Zendo page at the designer's site.

I couldn't see what you were looking for at any of them, but they and their links may help you in some way.

Maybe one of these days I'll retrieve the pic from my website archive and post it somewhere.

Excellent! That's exactly what I was looking for. And I see I mis-remembered some of them.

If and when you post it on BGG, you might want to fix the spelling: "procession", "Bermuda".

Here's a link that BGG parses correctly:

Edit:
And if you want to put it somewhere, just upload it to your gallery here.
