Top Ten Meeples

What’s a meeple?

A meeple is the name given to the character or object representing the player in a board game. The term was first coined for the distinct player characters in the game Carcassonne. The word meeple is a mash-up of ‘meeting people’ and also ‘my people’ - which reflects our aspiration to bring people together to enjoy great board games. These are our top ten favourite meeples.
