It is a set of 80 wooden meeples representing buildings (15 mm thickness, varied height and width), containing 18 large buildings (12 different shapes) and 62 small buildings (23 different shapes), to be placed on cardboard buildings tiles from the Core Game. It simply enhances the overall impression you will get if you play with the Core Game, not using the plastic pieces from the Miniatures Expansion. This expansion is purely of aesthetic nature and does not in any way influence the mechanics of the game. Meeples have double sided color printed building images on them (each side of the meeple has a different graphic!).The content is packed in a deluxe quality cardboard box.
