Have You Seen This Meeple?
« on: December 20, 2018, 03:05:27 AM »
Whilst sorting through my Meeples (no, that's not a euphemism) I spotted a rogue, rouge figure that was different to the others.   It is the same size as a 'regular' Meeple and looks as though it has full pockets.



Can anybody tell me where it belongs please.   I must confess that I do not have any of the Carcassonne spin-offs so apologies if it is from one of those.

I don't recognise that as being from the classic game, unless it's a mayor that went wrong...

If I had to guess I'd suggest maybe it's from Gold Rush as it looks like it might have a pistol in each pocket (or is it just pleased to see me?)

Like you I thought it might be packing heat or perhaps it's a MAMIL suffering the result of an early meal of Christmas sprouts.  :)

A very quick Google search suggests that if he is from Gold Rush then he's left his hat behind. That could explain why he was ousted by the other meeples though. Perhaps if you find a tiny wooden hat he can be reunited with them?

Looks like one from South Seas:

Ridiculous! Why would they need guns in South Seas? Unless they plan to shoot the fish (or the bananas)? But who's going to buy fish (or bananas) that have been shot? I'm somehow going to be personally outraged by this and will never play Carcassonne again. Ever.

I think they're meant to be racially stereotypical pants.

Looks like one from South Seas:

I found it amongst the Meeples in my Big Box 2017, perhaps it's part of a cunning Marketing plan to get me to buy the South Seas spin-off...

Or maybe that's just what they want you to believe... :-\

South Seas is a great spin-off. If I could only own one spin-off it would probably be that one.

good job, because you're never playing regular Carcassonne again!

I wish you'd reminded me of that before I started this game with Adda... :-[

Didn't realize you needed reminding after only 15 minutes!

How's Adda doing?

I don't like talking about it. I'm definitely never playing Carcassonne again this time...

What other games do you have in your library?

I have a feeling another game uses South Seas meeple, I thouhht it was Meeple circus, but I'm not too sure.
