Cundco - Big Meeple Set for coasters!
« on: February 09, 2021, 04:10:34 PM »
I just happen to be perusing Cundco and stumbled on these nice Big Meeples sized for Carc Coasters!

https://cundco.de/zubehoer/333/carcassonne-big-meeple-set

I did the math and they check out about right for the coasters from the Kickstarter!

Coasters are 1.975555555555556 times bigger than the regular tiles

Regular meeple: 16mm wide x 15.98mm tall x 9.94mm thick

Converting the Meeple size from the coaster size increase:

31.60888888888889mm wide x 31.56937777777778mm tall x 19.63702222222222mm thick

Big Meeple set from Germany:

35 x 35 x 14 mm

Couldn’t find anything out there on the forum about these, so thought I would share in case people were looking for a set to pair with the coaster packs.

Also, I still have a few more Carc coaster packs left in the closet - PM if interested! Not to mention the 15,000 random assortment of Carc coasters in the garage - can’t find a home for these and it feels wrong to toss... Anyone know of nerd bars who are still open, or if anyone wants random coasters not part of a set?

It’s been awhile - hope everyone here old and new have been good! I am so far behind on my Carc collection, but seeing missing Spiel tiles in the box just bugs me haha. The new Carcassonne Winter River looks super nice (I remember pitching that to Moritz during the Kickstarter, glad to see it finally has been produced!).

Great to hear from you Carcatronn.

Grabbed a few of these last year.  My (then) 1-year old loved these.  He puts the giant meeple into this bag of wooden shapes.

Not much going on in the world of Carc, other than the 20th Anniversary edition coming out around May.

Most other things are still on hiatus here until the pandemic clears.

It’s good to be heard! Thanks Decar - hope you are well!

Have you played a round with these Big Meeple? I’d love to see them in action with the coaster tiles  O0

I want to want Carc20, but the images I have seen I’m a bit disappointed. Even Catan did crazy amazing editions for 15yr and 20yr.

So far, Winter Edition River has caught my eye. Hoping this becomes available outside of Mueller soon!

Hello Ted, you are right, I have just tried them together, they perfectly match!
I also discovered that Cundco's coasters are bigger than yours!

Thanks again for posting this up Carcatronn. I just received my set of coasters today and they are even better than I had hoped for!

Now for the long 2 month+ wait to receive the big meeples from Cundco. Somethings are worth waiting for though.

My Big Meeples came in today. I agree with cletus81, they are the perfect addition to the AofC!

You are using FX like the ones in Lord of the Rings to portrait meeples and tiles in various sizes..  ;)

How many features can you claim at once with the mega meeple? Should we ask HiG?  >:D

Does the dragon eat that meeple as well?! I think we need some clarification of the rules and interactions with that meeple!

Sung to "Do your ears hang low":

Do you place it on a bridge?
Do you place it on a farm?
Can you build a pyramid?
Can you balance it on a tower?
Can launch it over your shoulder,
Like the catapult oughta?
Do you have clarifications...?


This will keep Meepledrone busy for years!
