Let's play Zendo with BGG images.

Add a game and I will tell you if it has the BUDDHA NATURE!

Or, more specifically, if the image that you chose for that game has the buddha nature. This is a clue that the buddha nature has nothing to do with mechanics, etc... but just applies to the physical components.

Sorry - there is no prize for figuring out the "rule". This is just for fun.

I'll start with an image that follows the rule, and you folks can take it from there. I'll try to check back often to judge the new images.

I just want to be clear that the rule applies to an image, not a game. If the rule is "game uses pawns" and you add chess but the photo doesn't show the pawns, then it does not have the buddha nature!

*----EDIT----*
If you'd like to guess the rule, make your guess as a comment on the image that you posted.

The master of each round is encouraged to give a small GG reward to the student who guesses the rule first.

The "winner" of a round becomes the new master and should think of a new rule and post another image to get the whole game rolling again.

Current round (as of the time of this edit) starts here.

The BGG Image Zendo Player microbadge has been approved! You can purchase it here.

I think ronster0 is on the right track. Master, does this image have the Buddha nature? And if so:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
An image has the buddha nature if the number 3 appears in it, or if it shows three players.

This poor student is hopelessly confused as to the significance of the number 3 or the presence of other digits. Please enlighten me with the answer to whether this image has the buddha nature.

Wise master,

seeing the Arkham Horror buddha picture I am uncertain of my guess, but I still need to try for everything in my heart tells me to do so. Is there buddha in this picture?

And:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Has the buddha nature anything to do with "3 in a row"? Or pile like-wise? As for the card there is also a 3 included in the row literally speaking.

New buddha

As afore mentioned, I am sorry for neglecting another persons chance of being the master. And please, do not adress me in that way, for I have yet to earn that title.

My sole desire is to provide you with a challenge for your minds.

This picture stands as an example for the new nature of buddha!

Do not worry that I won't be around for your thoughts long enough due to the different time zones. I'll be around for maybe as late as 10 pm eastern time.

Round IX

Greetings, young pupils, please gather round and place your offering of beer at the pseudo-master's feet. To understand Buddha, one must first stand on one leg. The truly enlightened will then be able to lift the other one.

For those of you in the advanced class, I humbly submit that this photo contains Buddha. Please be advised that Buddha must catch a yak home in half an hour, but should be available later tonight.

I'll guess that an image has the Buddha nature if and only if it shows the entire set of game components.

This is wrong, I am fairly sure, unless Bauboom in Babylon really doesn't come with much by way of components...
