Meeple Source is back with another great Character Meeple Kickstarter project!
It's been over 2 years since our first groundbreaking Kickstarter project that brought you 150 new Character Meeples, most of which were chosen by you, the backers! We have had tons of new ideas, and many of you have too, from the many requests that we've received.
The goal of this Kickstarter project is to create quite a few brand new deluxe Character Meeples, some for use in particular games (Codenames, Colt Express, Near and Far, Stone Age, Imperial Settlers, Aquasphere, Champions of Midgard, Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert, Targi, and more), and others for use in any game you love - simply because they are awesome!
We are proud to offer flat rate shipping for all backers. This means you can add-on your favorite sets (and individuals) without affecting your shipping amount - no limit!
All pledge levels can also be an add-on! That means that if you want more than one set, simply choose your main pledge level and add the amount of the additional set(s). It's that easy!
We don't want anything to stand between you and some really fantastic Character Meeples. That is why we offer all of our Kickstarter backers an unconditional money-back guarantee (within 30 days of receiving your meeples). Your only responsibility would be the return shipping, but that is fairly inexpensive, as the pieces are small and light. We are that confident that you’ll love ‘em!
All orders are quality-controlled, packaged, and shipped with care from the Meeple Source lair in Orlando, FL. We do not use any outside fulfillment centers, here in the US or internationally.
Chris and Cynthia Landon are the siblings that own and operate Meeple Source. Andrea is the fantastic artist behind all of these new Character Meeples, and the overwhelming majority of our Character Meeples and upgraded resource bits to date. Karen and Erika are an incredibly important part of our quality control, packaging, and shipping team.
Located in Orlando, FL, we are a small family business that takes great pride in superb product quality and excellent customer service!
We have already created an enormous number of cool game pieces and accessories, so feel free to browse some of that past work on MeepleSource.com.

Risks and challenges
Meeple Source has been making detailed, full-color Character Meeples for five years now. We are proud to say that we have a reputation for high quality pieces and great customer service.
Even with the success of our 7 completed Kickstarter projects to date, we are still a very small, family-run company that takes great pride in taking care of our customers and their orders personally. As a result, in combination with the enormous number of custom product combinations that we allow in our Kickstarter projects, shipping takes a good deal of time. To help with this, we have created some handy packages in this project, including themed sets and mixed packs of unique characters, that are designed to speed up fulfillment.
If you are one of our many repeat Kickstarter backers, you may know that a couple of our projects experienced minor delays, and that we were always straight-forward with regard to that. A distinct possibility for delay lies in the painting of the meeples. Although every individual meeple is hand-sorted for quality control, by us personally, there are times that errors in screen printing require that we re-make the entire batch of pieces for that particular Character Meeple. If this occurs, it will take a minimum of 8-10 weeks to replace them, which could delay shipping. For example, if this were to occur only a month before shipping would otherwise commence, some pledges would deliver after the estimated delivery date. Although we believe that we have allotted plenty of time for situations such as this, it should be noted that project delays are still a possibility.
More than anything, we are committed to quality. Our past customers know that this is true, and our Kickstarter backers know that we offer a money-back guarantee on all pledges. So don't worry, we've got this!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
