The Game Crafter is looking to add a bunch of new meeples in 2018. What custom meeple shapes would you want if you could have anything at all?

Stylized (i.e. Valentines)hearts in multiple colors.

I'd love to see some dungeon

I'd love to see some dungeon crawl bad guys: ie goblins, orcs, skeletons things like that. Ha! You already have gelatinous cubes!

I saw hearts

I saw hearts on the parts list.

For me, I'd like to see

Chess pieces (including some of the more common fairy chess pieces in each style)
Transparent convex markers (sort of a cross between a "gem" and a "wink")

but you asked about meeples. What seems to be missing are

construction/handyman meeple
"noble" meeple (crowned)
"suit" meeple (modern nobles... might just be a teeny tiny sticker of a tie on a regular meeple)
meeple-compatible vehicles (like the cube-compatible ones, but have space for a "driver")

I think meeples are too small

IF you are talking about the "traditional" MEEPLE ... I find those much too small... If they could be 1" (inch) in width maybe ... well then I could find them useful as "pawns" for games...

But I've seen how small the meeples are and even with nice stickers - to me... They are much too small.

I would really like to see a larger 1" (inch) x 1" (inch) - not a half that size... Meeple.

Could be the "Jumbo" Meeple!!! Anyways just contributing to the convo.

Animeeples

I would like to see a larger array of animeeples. There are lots of farm ones, but I'm not aware of too many in Jungle theme (monkeys, panthers, jaguars, tigers, sloths, gorillas, various birds, anacondas, etc.), Savanna theme (lions, rhinos, giraffes, elephants, hyenas, armadillos, hippos, crocodiles, alligators, zebras, chimpanzees, gazelle, etc), Mountain/Forrest theme (bear, deer, goats, rams, mountain lion, buffulo, yak, muskox, llamas, wolves, foxes, squirrels, etc.), Arctic/Antarctic theme (seals, walruses, penguins, polar bears, narwhals, arctic fox, etc.), Oceanic theme (huge selection to choose from here), Desert theme (scorpions, camels, camel spiders, snakes, owls, etc.), Coastal theme, and well you get the idea.

Top animeeples for me would be Narwhal, Emu, Foxes, Tarzier, Thorny Dragon, Hellbender Salamander, Sloth and Blue footed boobie.

Elemental Symbols

I think it'd be neat to have elemental and/or mana symbols.
Snowflake = Cold
Flame/Fireball = Heat/Fire
Tree = Wood
Droplet = Water
Spiral = Void
? = Air
etc.

I'm working on a couple games

I'm working on a couple games that use numbered meeples.

Various colors of meeples with 1, 2, or 3 printed on them would be fantastic.

Do you mean that you just want numbers, or you want a Carcassonne style maple with a number on it? or something else?

Clear meeple stickers?

Is clear meeple stickers a possibility? Like these but on clear sticker paper:

Gabe could use them for his numbered meeples and other designers would probably even find additional uses.

Clear stickers aren't possible. But he could just as easily print the color of the meeple on the sticker for its background.

Shapes vs. Stickers

Why not use "standard" meeples and print a sticker with the number on it? It's simpler and makes for better looking meeples too.

I think what The Game Crafter is looking for is what kind of "shapes" would you like meeples to come in.

What would be nice is CUSTOM "stickers" too... So if you have a "Wizard" meeple (with a wizard's hat + robes) we could create a sticker with his hat and beard but also his robe vs. requiring pants...

Here's a sample from Meeple Source:

Something along that ... would be very interesting indeed! And instead of PAINTED we could apply a custom sticker... Just some ideas about how to make this feasible...

Seeing as I missed out on

Seeing as I missed out on backing the deluxe version of Dinosaur Island, dinosaur meeples would be perfect.
