Zendo Nuts
First Zendo Nuts meeting went well. It ws 2 hours instead of 1, and that seems like a better length for the future ones. We played three games, and all the rules had nice little phrases with them. "United we stand; don't tread on me." "Don't eat the green ones, they're not ripe yet." "Little, yellow, different, better." I wish I were good at coming up with rules. I think I'm a bit better at disguising rules than coming up with them.

And Jason had the idea of registering a domain name for it and putting up our rules on the web site, so I said I'd do that. I wonder what all we want to track about the game. Last night, we just kept track of the rules. Maybe it would be interesting to track the number of rounds? And who got the rule? And maybe track all the guesses? I think it would be too much to record the koans, but, maybe if we could come up with a decent short-hand, it might work for most rules. As I was saying last night, it's pretty much impossible to exactly capture a koan, but it might be possible to at least capture its essence insofar as it's important for that rule. Actually, the master could be responsible for recording guesses, since the master is aware of what's important as far as the rule. Might be interesting. Anyone else have any thoughts on the matter?

I must insist on the correct spelling, lest the donutty pun potential roll away.

I like hiding it like that, but I guess it's too hard to see, then. I once wrote an acrostic poem for someone and decided not to tell them about the acrostic nature of it, figuring that they'd figure it out, since it was an acrostic with the first letter of each line. Talking with them about it, and I realized that they hadn't figured it out, so I had to tell them. I guess normal people don't look for stuff like that automatically every time they read something.

with one word it's a lot easier to notice than with a longer piece.
