I'm back! At least for now. While I was on break, I was sent some pretty cool meeples, and so I figured that I would share them with you on my first "pimp my game" post. Basically, what this (potential) series will be are ways to take your favorite games and make them look just a touch cooler.

Are there any down-sides or points of confusion from changing out these pieces? There's no additional confusion, since each player should be able to remember who they chose (though there will no longer be a marker in front of them). However, the character meeples are a bit smaller than the original adventurer meeples, and they also may look similar if you are standing them up (since the tops of them aren't different). Simple enough solution - I lay them flat, and the problem is solved! And, if you're worried about the size difference, you can order mega meeples - though I believe that their selection of those is more limited.

I would like to thank Meeple Source for providing me with a review copy of their 25-pack of Character Meeples.
