Meeples in a jar.
« on: July 27, 2015, 10:30:47 AM »
I thought I would start a new competition.

You must guess how many meeples of all shapes and sizes are in the jar.  Simples!

The first prize is a brand new copy of either German castles, German monasteries, or GQ11.  There is a second prize of a copy of my fan expansion which has 2 new types of meeple and 4 tiles. 

Start guessing!

I say 210 ::)
A knight is sworn to valour.
His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

Great idea (+1) - can I confirm that barns are considered meeple?

Yes any kind of meeple, follower, etc - basically any sort of wood from carcassonne could be in there (possibly including fan expansions).  But there are no bridges or tower pieces.

This will run for about 2 weeks or so - maybe longer I will see how it is going!

I'll guess at 180 please.

No, wait, 181 - I've just spotted a particularly handsome meeple that I hadn't considered in my calculations!
