Wakey wakey, it’s time to get your meeples ready.

A Meeple is a small wooden character or object representing the player in a modern board game. It also refers to the network of board games around the world.

Because of his passion for board games, Erik Dreyer, founder of Meeting Meeples, aims to host a Board Game Day today (12 August) at 10 am where everyone is welcome to play some nifty old-fashioned games and meet other people.

With approximately 150 unique board games and 12 different categories, anyone can join in the fun. Some of these categories include cooperative, family, hobby, classics and ‘just for two’ games.

This will be held at 61 Wishart Street, Krugersdorp North. For more information, feel free to contact Erik on 082 377 7936.

“I want people to break away from the digital world for a while by putting them in another world. I want to get family and friends to make time and interact with each other again. There’s nothing better than to use modern board games as a medium to establish just that,” he said.
