We tried marking a koan as having the buddha nature (or not) with
pyramids once. It was confusing. I much prefer keeping some small
plastic discs in my icehouse box to mark a koan as yes or no. We've
used white pyramids as guessing chips in the past, but now that I
added a deck of cards to my box for Zark City, I'll just be handing
those out instead.
