Welcome to Emoticon Zendo Game 198!

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 student may do "master" (asking about a koan) two consecutive times (i.e. he must wait for another student to do "master" in between), unless 24 hours have passed without another student doing a "master". A student may "guess" the rule twice consecutively only if there was a "master" from another student, and at least an hour has passed since the first guess. A student may do a "master" and then make a guess consecutively.
-As a courtesy to other students in the event that your guess is correct, please enclose your guesses in [o][/o] tags.
-The null koan is allowed in Emoticon Zendo. Use the word "null" to indicate a koan with no emoticons.
-Your first guess is free. Additional guesses cost 1 GeekGold (except see below). 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.
-If you have already made at least one guess, but more than 48 hours has passed since your last guess, you may make another guess without paying the 1 GG fee.
-Please thumb the main thread if you participate.
-It is customary that the student who reaches enlightenment on this game, is the master for the next game. If unable or unwilling to perform that function, please signal the master of this game.
-"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:

Disproven by the table (i.e. the koan I just marked).
Edit: You get your guess back.

I'm off to bed, and I'll just make a quick rule guess, since I cannot offer a new koan to be marked:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
A koan has the Buddha nature iff it starts and ends with a die (either d6 or d10 - the dice may both be d10's, both d6's or one of each), and the difference between the values of these dice is twice the number of emoticons in between
