One of the most wonderful pieces of jargon to come out of the boardgaming hobby is the effervescent and descriptive word "Meeple" to refer to your playing pieces. So much nicer than the anodyne and disdainful "pawn".

The other day someone referred to the Meeples in Vikings as Veeples which started off a whole train of thought.....

Please feel free to add you own, I'm sure there are many more where these came from!

Veeples are of course Viking Meeples and the inspiration for this list. They tend to wear horned helmets in direct contravention of historical accuracy but drink a lot and sail in circles.

Sheeples generally look sheepish at being pressed into playing a game. They enjoy it but feel it spoils their ovine dignity.

Any pieces representing churches are naturally referred to as Steeples.

Anyone familiar with Frederik Pohl's Gateway series will inevitably refer to aliens as Heecheeples.
