We want to thank everyone who has provided valuable input and support for this Kickstarter project! We love being able to hear your suggestions and immediately start developing a solution that will make other gamers happy too.
What's this all about?
Our goal is to upgrade your favorite games with sweet wooden tokens and Character Meeples.
We have created a complete upgrade set for a number of games that most gamers own, and if you don't yet, you should! Ticket to Ride, Pandemic, Power Grid, Agricola, Caverna, Lords of Waterdeep, Dungeon Petz, Francis Drake, Imperial Settlers, Dominant Species, Harbour, Eldritch Horror, Elder Sign, Trains, and Robinson Crusoe are all fantastic games that many of you have asked us to make upgraded components for. Many of these have been added since the start of the project, so check out all of the available options now.
*** For anyone who buys the 240-piece set of trains, both $19 add-on colors, and the 45-piece TTR Asia add-on, we'll included the 9 trains for the other two add-on colors for free. That seems easiest, and a nice little bonus for our backers who are getting it all. ***
Your complete satisfaction is our top priority! If for any reason you would like to return your Kickstarter pledge, you'll have 30 days after you receive it to do so and get a full refund. We would only ask that you cover the return shipping. We are that confident that you'll love your game upgrade kits!
It would be a little crazy to try and showcase all of our past work here, especially when you consider the number of collaborations that we have had with other game designers, manufacturers, podcasts, and others. But here is a little sample of what Meeple Source has done already.
Cynthia Landon and Chris Landon are the sibling duo that started MeepleSource shortly after discovering euro gaming. What began as a part-time hobby business has slowly developed into thriving endeavor in a community that we all love. We are very grateful to all of our fellow gamers who have helped us get this far, and we are excited to see what we can accomplish in 2015!
Risks and challenges
We started making full-color, detailed Character Meeples in 2011. In 2014, we ran three successfully funded Kickstarter projects to create many more Character Meeples. The first and second projects have both fully shipped, and the third is currently in production.
One variable that is sometimes hard to predict is how close the final meeple printing looks to the vector-based concept art you see here. Although we are happy with all of the Character Meeples we have made to date, the colors and level of detail achieved do vary.
Printing delays are still always possible, though. We learned this in our first Kickstarter project, since there were 150 different Character Meeples all being manufactured, quality-controlled, and shipped at the same time. Although we have recently been able to speed up our meeple creation process a bit, all while achieving the highest possible quality, the risk of production delay is present in all manufacturing.
Finally, we personally perform all of the necessary quality control, package and ship all orders, and manage customer service inquiries. If we do encounter any delays (or other problems), we will certainly let you know. We are very proud of our customer service reputation, to which our past backers and website customers can attest!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
