I could use regular meeples but they would feel different in the bag.
So I'm wondering what games have matching meeples so I can try it with 5 players. As our group has 5 more often than 4 players.

Also if you have played with 5, how well does it work with 5 players?

The village inn expansion includes matching pieces for a fifth player. It's worth picking up on its own anyway.

I know that but I wanted to try it with five players by stealing a few meeples from another game before paying $35 for the expansion.

5 players works pretty well. Don't forget you need to add extra spaces in the graveyard and chronicle for 5 players, I think its one extra space for the graveyard and each color except green. Plus find a photo of the cube distrubition card for 5 players so you get the correct number of cubes for the round. You may need extra cubes too. Also you'll need 5 tokens to represent wheat if everyone fills up their farm.

Really, the expansion is terrific, and we never play without it. It's $28 on Amazon, and you're going to pay $5 plus shipping for meeples, and not have a player board, the right stickers for the meeples so they feel the same in the church bag, etc.

I can't recommend the expansion enough, and I think it's a good deal if you're going to spring for meeples anyway.

You must have misunderstood my question. I was asking about games with matching meeples not about buying meeples. I would like to play the full expansion but my question was more regarding meeples I can use to try playing with 5 players and if the game is still decent with 5 players.

To answer my own question:
I have found that power struggle has matching meeples and enough of them for the 5th player (and it is a great game IMO. and cheap to buy). There are plenty of extra # stickers with Village to use. And you can just add the extra grave slots for the 5th player.

The expansion also adds additional coins, grain, etc. so the supply is full for the addition of a 5th player, so that is worth noting.

"Yedo" has similar meeples as far as I know (at least in the german edition).
