About

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

Needles to say, Meeples are 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.

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!

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 the components in these images are all prototypes.
Please note that the components in these images are all 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.  You will also get your set of Dreeples in December along with all the other Dreeple Shipments.  

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.)  

We will post the rules shortly.

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.  

There will be 8 custom dice for this game.  Rough prototype image shown.
