Let the show begin!
You have only one goal in Meeple Circus: Entertain the audience. The competition is tough, but you can create the most amazing circus by proposing incredible acts! Acrobats, horses, and many accessories are at your disposal. Be sure to undertake a good rehearsal, then with your remarkable dexterity, you can give them the show of their lifetime. Once the circus music starts, all eyes will be upon you!
In short, Meeple Circus is a dexterity game in which you do what all gamers do when setting up a game: Pile up your meeples!
Etienne's Game of the Week
Meeple Circus should be in your board game collection.
The game gives you the reins of a circus practicing before their great show. This is a dexterity game where your task will be to build pyramids with meeples, an elephant, 3 barrels, a camel and many other pieces.
The fun of the game lies in the madness incurred by the seconds of chaos where nothing goes as planned: Your pyramids fall, the pieces won't fit together and, when everything seems to go well, the time has expired. It may seem frustrating, but when you look around the table, everyone has made is in the same terrible situation. The last round adds a ridiculous challenge (playing the wrong hand, pretending to eat a sandwich, getting up to give kisses to the crowd,...) and there are more points to win.
Perfect for all the family, the game is explained in seconds and lasts only about minutes.
Finally, an application exists to time the rounds. It adds ridiculous circus music and an equally ridiculous filter to take pictures.
