Meeple in The Wild
« on: May 17, 2016, 12:14:35 PM »
It is time to start a new 'I love the postman-contending' thread.  It's a pretty simple topic and there's a chance for everyone to take part.  I like to call it 'Meeple in the Wild', the general idea is spot meeple in everyday objects, but can also include meeple out-and-about with everyday objects.  Some other suggestions include:

Where nature has tried it's best to construct a meeple:

Pieza de Inicio's Facebook page.

Or perhaps where mankind has lent a helping hand:

3DWilson's Coffee Stencil

Or an accidental Meeple shaped construct:

Fort Clonque

Or perhaps just a simple Meeple in an unusual location:

From Udo Schmitz's Carcassonne-on-Tour collection

Hopefully that will give you some ideas - Hope you can share some of your favourite Meeple in the Wild photos.

I didn't know where to post this, but this seemed liked the best location.

We sat down to watch and episode of Big Mouth on Netflix this evening.  Big Mouth is an adult animated sitcom about some tweenagers growing up in the suburbs of New York.

Midway through the episode I spotted this:



I zoomed in a bit closer:



and then a few seconds later:



A good spot from me, if I don't say so myself  :(y) :(y)

It's an acquired taste - not everyone's cup of tea, but has made us laugh a few times.

Loved it  :)

What I got out of it ...

Existence is never having to say you’re sorry

Sorry the last game and The game of life ... what’s the point anyway!
