This is a rather interesting story. I went to the specialty shop Over the Top Cakes in St. Albert with a Carcassonne meeple in hand so I could ask them to make a cake in the shape of a meeple. She looked at it standing there on the counter and shook her head. There was no way she could make it to stand up like that.
So, I pushed over and I said, “No problem; it’s a farmer*.” 😉 – John Engel
The cake valued at $175 has been generously donated to GameAlot by Mission: Fun & Games.
* Carcassonne is a tile-placement game in which the players draw and place a tile with a piece of southern French landscape on it. After playing a tile, a player can then decide to place one of his meeples on one of the areas on it: on the city as a knight, on the road as a robber, on a cloister as a monk, or laying on its side on the grass as a farmer.
