What is this item all about? Do your kids like to watch you play board games? Do they constantly play around with your wooden game parts or other tokens? Well this can solve the problem, put a few of these off to the side when setting up any game as they are game-token sized and of high quality wood. Put a couple at random out on the board for no apparent reason and then when your kids try to play with your tokens or other actual important items, hand them a few of these to play with! Problem solved, they can do all kinds of cool stuff with them and it will save your game!
These can also be used to replace other parts for other games if you so choose, have fun by trading out your Carcassonne meeples for sheep, pigs and cattle, or use them to replace the components in El Grande, Settlers of Catan, Agricola, Clue or many other games. Yes Clue. It was Mrs. Sheep in the ballroom with the lead pipe. Many of the preorders have mentioned they plan to use the sheep in place of Coal on Powergrid. Yes burn sheep to fuel your factories! One lady said she was going to use them as the babies in Zooloretto. Another very kind man mentioned he would be using the pieces for just about everything as he is color blind and has to rely on shapes rather than color to tell his pieces apart! We don't care what you do with them, just buy them :)

|I HIGHLY suggest buying this with Agricola. It makes the game much more visually appealing and easier for beginners. Well worth the money.
|Well it obviously has no bearance on the game itself, but Agricola's substitute animeeples are pretty cute. They're pretty popular, too, so it just goes to show you that people love putting a little form to an abstract concept. Agricola's base pieces are little cubes.
|For this gamer, animeeples are a must when playing Agricola. Most importantly they increase the accessability of the game. People may not be intrested in breeding three different colors of cubes, but everyone seems to want to move little sheep around the board. In addition, being able to identify the animals at a glance smoothes out gameplay, giving time for strategy.
Finally, the production quality of the particular animeeples is very high. I would recommend them to anyone serious about Agricola!
