If you hurry, you can get in on the MeepleSource KS campaign for "Character Meeples (2.0)" where they have something called the "Cave Dweller Pack" which fits with the player colors (plus one black you can make custom rules for). The pieces were designed for Stone Age (and are also sold as a bigger set to use there) but they make sense in Foragers as well, in the smaller set of 1 per color.

I'd also recommend the Meeplesource Mega Meeple size meeples as they fit the scale of the original pieces.

If you really want to go crazy, also get the Meeplesource apples for fruit, the Meeplesource buffalos for the animals and the blue eagle/gryphon Fleet fish for the fish. I dislike that the Meeplesource fish are only available in "salmon" color.

Total overkill, but those all are great replacements of the original pieces.

How does that work? How much would it cost you and how many would you get?

thanks!

In this case I went for an $8 add-on with the set of five cavepeople meeples; Not sure how their decision to offer both male and female for all colors will affect that set though.

If you go "all in" and replace the food tokens as well, the price will be a bit higher though They have "game upgrade" kits for various games, maybe throw them a suggestion to add Foragers to the selection. Based on their prices for other upgrade kits, I guess such a set (meeples and resources) would end up somewhere around $25.

EDIT: I misread my list of backed projects, it's still going (not done as I wrote).
