I'm rather proud that Las Vegas' board game cafe has something that might be a record: the world's largest meeple!



It's a doorway that connects the original half and the expansion half of the cafe. Now, I'm not terribly sure it's a legitimate world record, so I'm wondering if anybody has seen a larger meeple. To give you a point of reference, I'm 6 foot tall, and I come a little above halfway up the cutaway. I imagine at some point at a GenCon or Essen or something that there was a poster or display of a meeple that could have been bigger. So, maybe this could be considered "the world's largest wooden meeple"?

Cool doorway! But I would argue this is not a maeple, but rather the outline of a meeple.

A negative space meeple. However, if the wall was solid to begin with.... then yeah, there would be one big meeple lurking about there.

Only if it was removed in one piece, otherwise it's plaster and brick that could theoretically be used as a jigsaw of a meeple.

Something that burst through the wall to leave that meeple-shaped hole, Kool-Aid Man style meeple

There was a Slylock Fox brain teaser that used this concept...

What did Slylock Fox fill the wooden barrel with to make it lighter?
