First edition meeple with difference
« on: July 04, 2017, 08:50:06 AM »
I have the first edition Carcassonne and noticed that the black meeple is different than the others. Is anyone familiar with that?

Yes, I think it's quite well known that the meeples that come in the first edition box are somewhat mishapen. I guess it took a while to refine their methods of mass-production!

Yes, they are more or less different in every edition. Here is fantastic overview by Heiko69 how the meeple look like in every edition: https://www.carcassonne-forum.de/gallery/image/1980

Certainly the first editions are well known for their mishapenness.

However your black meeple appear to be something else entirely -

Thanks Decar. The black ones seem to be also with mishapenness...
