About Intrepid Meeple

We are James and Maria, founders of Intrepid Meeple. We both worked in engineering professions that took us to live in multiple countries all over Europe. In our free time we would organise various social clubs and events to meet new people and of course have a lot of fun doing so!

In 2018 we decided to have a change of lifestyle. Leaving behind the office to experience life on the beautiful island of Ibiza.

As gamers and adventurers, we often discussed how great it would be to go on a holiday that totally immersed us in games. Not just tabletop games but also games that had us exploring in nature. So, putting together our love of board games, fine food, luxury holidays and adventure, Intrepid Meeple was born.

About Modern Board Games

This hobby will make you laugh, make you think and build bonds with friends and family. 

If you are not familiar with the modern board game scene, then you are probably thinking about Monopoly, Scrabble and all those other family games that you grew up with. As enjoyable as those may be, possibly the fact that they got you around the table and interacting with friends and family is what gives you those warm, fond memories. So now combine that joy with games that are thematic, fun, challenging and in all ways, just so much better! There has been a renaissance of the hobby in the last decade and the market is now full of games that cater to different tastes and levels, whether you are an avid gamer or just someone trying to have a great time.

There are cooperative games as well as head to head, also games in which one players is a secret traitor and must be discovered by the other players. Many different game mechanics now exist such as engine building, worker placement and area control to name but a few. A broad range of themes means that there is definitively something for everyone to enjoy. From colonising Mars, building underwater cities and controlling the fate of a medieval village to zombies, pandas and hyperactive Wizards!
