A lot of them refer to meeples as Workers. In Carcassonne they could be thieves, knights or farmers. What other names do they have and in what game?

In Rockwell they are called Vice Presidents, but I "unofficially" call them Veeples.

Huh? Since when does Pandemic have meeples? My copy just has cubes.

Looks like there's just cubes in Love Letter too. Are you sure you know what meeples are? They're the people things, nit just wooden pieces

My copy of Agricola specifically says it has Animeeples.

Lords of Waterdeep refers to them as Agents, Lieutenant, and Ambassador, depending on which one it is.

Let's go with standard-issue components, in case anybody was thinking of including add-ons or promo items.

In Glen More they're called clan members (until they're upgraded to chieftains).

Well, in Carcassonne they're actually Followers as a general term, of course.

In Eketorp: Vikings.

In Fast Flowing Forest Fellers: Lumberjacks & Lumberjills. (Does this count? There's only one of each per player, but they are meeply in their wooden silhouettishness!)

Felinia: Merchants.

Royal Palace: Servants.

Troyes: Citizens.

Village: Family Members.
