It depends on the group you have.  "A koan has the Buddha nature if and only if it forms a line where the sequentially ordered pip counts of individual groups of touching pieces along that line is a palindrome" took only four guessing stones in my group.  This is because my brother and I are constantly pointing out numerical palindromes to each other, such as palindromic odometer readings, so several brains at the table were already trained to spot palindromic sequences.  I'd bet the Fibonacci rule would have been "an easy one" for a bunch of math geeks obsessed with Fibonacci sequences.
