Power to the Meeple is a complex, euro-styled strategy game where you attempt to become the mayor of Meepletown. The primaries have just ended and up to five candidates must fight to become the winner of the general election.
To win, you'll need to draft the right resources, and pick strategies that expose your opponent's weaknesses and take the most advantage of the resources you are gathering.
All parts and pieces depicted are prototypes and subject to change for the final version.
Skills for this euro-strategy game include: Drafting, Resource management and Strategy.
The game currently includes:
- 1 Box (custom or mass market) (see below for box ideas)

Risks and challenges
I began developing games back in 2007, when I got my first job programming Flash games at an animation studio in Los Angeles. Since meeting my wife, 3 years ago, I've been playing less video games and a lot more board games. So it was only natural that my career led me to this project. I've been particularly inspired by such politicians as Bernie Sanders or Ralph Nader and their grassroots way of gathering power. Power to the Meeple has been crafted to bring attention and education to some of the most delicate aspects of running a successful campaign.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
