  • Reach your right arm up to the sky…
  • Tilt your head slightly forward…
  • Bend your elbow…
  • Pat yourself on the back!

Thanks to you all, we are able to manufacture the first ever - one of a kind - Meeple Mate Bottle Opener!

Really, I’m so thankful for the support you all have shown. Humbled.

So what are the next steps?

1. I’ll be preparing the surveys within BackerKit and my goal is to get those out to you before this time next week (we gotta move fast for the Holidays!).

2. I’ll go ahead and place the initial order to start the laser cutting!

3. Once I get an idea of demand for each color(s) I’ll start getting the Meeple Mates powder coated.

4. We’ll begin prepping and shipping to our fulfillment centers around the globe.


There might be a way to do two more colors… Would you rather have 2 more colors or the metal version (no pics yet sorry)? Let me know by taking the survey below and we’ll see what unfolds!

Well folks, that was a close race!

Here are the results from our Blue Meeple Mate vs. Purple Meeple Mate:

  • Blue: 42

Holy Meeples! That was close!
Holy Meeples! That was close!

So we’ll be producing a batch of Blue Meeple Mates along with our initial batch of Red Meeple Mates!

We only have a few days left to try and reach our first stretch goal, if we can do that, we’ll have the ability to unlock 2 more colors! I created a few links below to help spread the word if you’re able to do so.
