About

Yes, we are back!  We have worked out the financial aspects with our manufacturer and have been able to get a lower funding goal.  We know Kickstarter.com is a great place and the community here is so awesome and has been so supportive of Dreeples.  So, Thank you for supporting us!  Without you it is not possible.  Please feel free to share any part of this project on your social media feeds during this campaign to help it get more attention:

WHAT ARE DREEPLES?

 Dreeples are Dragon Meeples.  A Dreeple is approximately 2.5 inches wide, 2 inches tall and 3/8 inch thick. 

  Needles to say, your standard Meeple will be very, very scared of them.  Please note that the images in this campaign are all prototypes.  The final product will be consistent in thickness and design. 

  These mysterious beasts are represented through out table top gaming in various forms but nothing as phenomenal as here in this campaign. This item has been something Silver Lake Games has sought after for some time now.  Seeing that the market does not currently supply something like this intrigued us.  So we set to making and testing different models and came up with what you see in this campaign.  There has been enough interest in these mystical beasts that we decided to offer them to the public earlier than planned.  Thus, the Dragon Meeple was born into existence and the name of Dreeple was bestowed upon it. 

 Thank you's:

A special shout out to Ben Fox from "Mr. Lunches for his inspiration with the name.  Follow him out on Twitter, like seriously check him out on Twitter right after you pledge to this campaign!

----------------Pledge Levels----------------------------

 Dreeples are approximately 2.5 inches wide, 2 inches tall and 3/8 inch thick.  They are made of high strength Colored Acrylic.  Those shown in the images on this campaign are all prototypes.  The final sizes will all be uniform in size.  If you would like to get a 2nd Dreeple, you can simply add $3 to your pledge for each additional Dreeple.  We will work out what colors you want via the survey at the end of the campaign. 

 This pledge level is simple. You get a set of Dreeples. If you would like to add a 2nd set (or more) simply add $15 to your pledge for each additional set you would like beyond the first at NO ADDITIONAL SHIPPING and you will get multiple sets. You can also choose to mix and match and get as many of a single color (up to 8 per $15 pledged) as you like at this pledge level. We will work all that out via the survey at the end of the campaign.

WHAT?!? YOU WANT MORE THAN JUST THE DREPPLES?... OK THEN, HERE YOU GO:

Please note that all components are prototypes.
Please note that all components are prototypes.

 Our fans have mentioned that we should include a board game with the Dreeples.  Since we love our fans, we designed a short, intense Dragon War game that we call Dreeple Wars.  In this game you take on the role of one of the mighty Dragons who is seeking for Magical Treasure.  You obtain this Magical Treasure by destroying the local communities of the Meeple Kingdom.  Each Dragon has a unique special ability and the game plays in under 45 minutes with 4 players.  You can play up to 8 players if you truly desire to.  And of course, why would you not.  The other magic coins you can acquire give you lots of extra victory points or can be traded in for a one time special use to boost your Dreeple.  The game is simple enough that anyone can play but has enough bite in it that even the extreme gamer will come to terms with their own reality and play it.  There are custom dice which add a small amount of randomization, but this can be controlled by making strategic decisions on where, when and who to attack or even when not to attack.  Also, there is no player elimination, but getting knocked out will cost you some $$$$.  We even made a rough play through video so you can see how it works.   

This game in its form here on Kickstarter will be exclusive to this campaign for now.  If it is popular enough there is a possibility that it could be published at a future date but the major components of the game will be unique to this print run of the game (Except the Dreeples they will be included in Dragon Stories when it is released and possibly for sale on their own.  We will see what the future holds for us.)

Please keep in mind that the components shown are prototypes.  The game itself will feature Chipboard tokens and coins.  Stretch Goals may improve on these components.

    Design a Figure

    Send us a description or image of a character (as long as it is not copyrighted and is family friendly) and we will make that custom shape for you in Clear Acrylic. We cannot do anything but Clear here because of the of how our agreement with our manufacturer is set up with the relaunch of this campaign. Just be aware that clear is the only color we will be able to do here unless the funding goes crazy awesome. Thanks for your understanding.

    Silver Lake Games does reserve the right to sell this character during this and future campaigns as an add-on.

    The character could be added to the Stretch Goals if we really like the idea/design.
