Dino Meeple Upgrade for Dinosaur Island by Meeple Source

$70,348

512

If you're here, you probably already know that Dinosaur Island is an awesome game! The high-quality components are remarkable, and the dinosaur art on the Dino Recipe Tiles really make you feel like you are building your own dinosaur park. All you need now is painted wooden Dino Meeples that match the art!

These large wooden Dino Meeples are the perfect game upgrade for the hardcore fan who must have it all! As with all Meeple Source game upgrades, the details are all painted - we do not use any stickers!

All art should technically be considered "not final" yet, as sometimes we have to make (usually small) changes for production or other reasons.

We have created pledge levels for everyone - whether it be owners of just the original/base game, all-in Dinosaur Island backers who also have the Totally Liquid expansion and Dino Petting Zoo expansion board, or the diehard Meeple Source fans who love to collect 1-of-each of our fancy Meeples (Check out the "Add-ons Only" pledge).

As with our last few Kickstarter projects, we are glad to be able to offer flat rate shipping to all backers. You can get everything you want without raising your shipping cost - 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!   

 Whether you are a Meeple Source collector that just wants one of each meeple we make, or you want to put together a more affordable partial set of dinos for Dinosaur Island, here is where you can put together a custom set with the right number of dinos for you! If you want 2, 3, or more of each dino, just multiply it out!

These can be added to any pledge level (no additional shipping cost), or chosen alone by selecting the "Add-ons Only" pledge level.

We don't want anything to stand between you and this really fantastic game upgrade. That is why we offer all of our Kickstarter backers an unconditional money-back guarantee (within 30 days of receiving your pieces). Your only responsibility would be the return shipping to us. 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 central Florida. We do not use any outside fulfillment centers, here in the US or internationally.

Aside from the modest shipping cost, if there are any import duties owed at delivery, this is still your responsibility. 

Meeple Source is a family owned and operated company from Orlando, FL. Siblings Chris and Cynthia Landon are the founders, and remain in primary operational roles today. If you ever stop by our booth at conventions, you'll see the whole Landon family helping out - along with some friends that are as close as family!

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. We also have 10 successful Kickstarter projects that have been an integral part of our product line growth.

Risks and challenges

Meeple Source has been making detailed, full-color Character Meeples for about seven years now, and other painted components longer than that. We are proud to say that we have a reputation for high quality pieces and great customer service.

Even with the success of our 10 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. We do use a post-project management system (typically BackerKit) which helps keep everything orderly.

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 pieces. 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 meeple. If this occurs, it will take a minimum of 8-10 weeks to replace them, which could delay shipping. 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.

Our last few Kickstarter projects delivered early, and although this could occur again, we obviously can't promise that.

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!
