Meeple Stickers
« on: May 03, 2016, 02:57:06 PM »
I found that my local store has old Spielbox magazines.  They were hidden in the area where you can paint your miniatures.  I got really excited hoping to find something really cool or rare.  The only Carcassonne issue was the one that contains the meeple stickers.  My wife wanted to buy them, but I did not.  I liked the idea of meeple stickers, but I worried that I would regret putting them on my brightly colored happy meeple. 

Did anyone actually use these?  If not, is there any really cool uses for them aside from decorating a game shelf or box?

I put them on my second set of meeples from Wheel of Fortune. It wasn't ideal, but it works. I honestly don't ever play with that set, though. I don't even like the stickers on my Star Wars Carcassonne meeples. Too gaudy.

While Z-Man hasn't managed to get the 20th Anniversary distributed yet, there is the sticker set. One of my kids is pretty excited about them. We've been looking into stickers for meeples, and it seems like, as this thread indicates, that the 20th Anniversary is not the first set of stickers that HiG has made. I looked on cundco and didn't see any old stock. Do people have links or references to official HiG stickers for Carc that they have done before? I might have missed it in the wiki, though I searched there, too. -  :pink-meeple:

Well.... I don't see why I will put sticker on my meeple.... Maybe attracking for kid, but not for my gaming table

But I have some questions:

How long do they stick well (before there coming appart)?

How about the look of the stickers?

Maybe attracking for kid

Exactly, sir. As a parent, I will do a lot to grab my kids' attention and get them move involved into anything that they show even the slightest interest in besides YouStupid and TikCrap. I can get an extra set of meeples to sticker up on at a low enough price point, that it is really worth it to try to engage constructively with my kids (and their friends) and get them to think, use their minds, and get away from the screen. -  :pink-meeple:

Out of curiosity, it appears as though there are stickers for six sets (yellow, blue, green, red, black, and grey) for 8 meeples, one big meeple, and one pig for each of the six sets. However, right smack dab in the middle row of the sticker sheet, it looks there are stickers for 4 more meeple and one more big meeple. Any experience or thoughts about people did with this extra set of stickers, besides being placed on a door nob or furniture, which is where many stickers in my household end up? -  :pink-meeple:

I like the Star Wars stickers, as they are appropriate to the game.
I feel the stickers in the 20th anniversary edition don't add much. In fact, I found them annoying. Tried it on the abbots and removed them after one game. But it's a personal preference I think ;)
