A meeple is a small person-shaped figure, usually wooden, used to represent a player in modern board games. According to Wiktionary, "meeple" is a blend of "my" and "people," credited to Alison Hansel during a game of Carcassonne in 2000. Now meeples can come in all shapes and sizes. Are there any meeples or other game pieces that you really like?
Where do you store your board games? Do you stick them all in a closet or do you have a shelf designated for your games? Are your games stacked horizontally or shelved vertically? Do you have a specific system (i.e. alphabetically sorted) to locate your games with ease? Some board games also come with excellent box inserts for the storage of all the pieces. Are there any that you have found impressive? Have you ever invested in buying a box insert for a board game or made your own? Are you a fan of plastic bags? Do you sleeve your cards? Any other storage issues are fair game!
A couple weeks ago, the newsfeed on my phone suggested an article titled: 5 Modern Muggle Board Games We Think Hufflepuffs Would Love. At the time, the list for Gryffindors was also up. I waited for the ones for Ravenclaws and Slytherins. I haven't actually played most of the games on the Gryffindor and Slytherin lists, though I have heard of some of them. Bluffing seems to be a common theme in the games mentioned for Slytherins. If you had to choose one board game for each Hogwarts house, which one would you pick and why? It's okay if you don't have one for each house, you can post what you have and come back later!
