Meeples on MainDesigned by: JonnyPac
Mancala meets worker placement in the Wild West!
Playing the game
Each turn you will take all of the meeples from a building and drop them off one-by-one onto the doorways of other buildings. Next, they enter the buildings, which triggers various effects: Miners draw pieces from the gold mine bag, Bandits steal from the Miners, and Deputies bust the Bandits! Then when the dust has settled, you may acquire a building by seeing if the meeples within it meet the special requirements… If not, you can always use your gold to pay the difference.
As the meeples make the rounds and cross the street, some draw their guns. A shootout will happen once there are two meeples facing off on either end of town. Will they survive? I guess you’ll find out! When 6 meeples fill the graveyard, the game ends (or when all of the gold bars have been taken from the bank). The player with the most points wins!
