This crazy idea of a Dixit/Zendo mashup came to me and seemed amusing/interesting...


This koan has the Buddha nature:
Board Game: Dixit


This koan does not have the Buddha nature:
Board Game: Dixit




Master, does this koan have the Buddha nature?
Board Game: Dixit

Yes, it does.



Master, does this koan have the Buddha nature?
Board Game: Dixit

No, it does not.



Master, does a koan have the Buddha nature if it has a door?
No, my Student. The following koan has a door, but does not have the Buddha nature:
Board Game: Dixit




...and so it goes...

Definitely a game that would require the right crowd. Fortunately, I think I know a right crowd for this. Neat idea, thanks!

Sorry, I'm not the Master, I'm just the Variant Proposer!

To play this for real in the forum, we'd need individual scans of each card. The idea is admittedly appealing, but surely an abuse of both the gallery and the publisher's copyright...

But surely you had a rule in mind when you chose the pictures - if we can't play, at least you can tell us the rule you used

I confess I improvised that example. I picked 4 random card arrangements from the gallery, then figured out a plausible rule for them, then made that the Student guess for them, then found a counterexample in the gallery. Sorry to destroy the magic.

Alternatively: "Master, does a Koan have the Buddha nature if it contains an arched doorway?"
