Meeples & Dragons is an online specialty store that stocks tabletop related accessories to the Australian market. Based in Brisbane, our aim is to acquire unique, high-end gaming accessories and make them available to the Australian market. This allows the customer to deal directly with an Australian company while avoiding the hassle of arranging products through Australian customs themselves. We buy in bulk and can transfer the savings on to the consumer.
We have formed several partnerships abroad to acquire the best quality products. When we can’t find a product that meets our quality requirements then we manufacture our own. This way we can guarantee the quality and provide a unique product we hope our customers will enjoy.

Kickstart & Crowdfunding
Here at Meeples & Dragons we like to keep abreast of emerging products. One way this is done is to keep a close eye on the crowd funding community and when we recognise a great product, we help fund the project. In the event the project succeeds we endeavour to acquire the product for resale.
We are proud supporters of the following successful crowdfunded projects:
Meeples & Dragons is more than just an online store and we aim to give back to the tabletop community. One of the ways we do this by networking with members of the local indie tabletop developer scene, finding out how we can get help out and get involved. Something as simple as promoting and supporting their latest crowdfunding project can go a long way!
We also connect with established not-for-profit groups and clubs to find out how and what they need to keep their members active, and make their club activities easier to run. Where possible, we sponsor university and other clubs to get them the resources they need to achieve this.
We are passionate about the positive impact of tabletop gaming – It’s a great way of bringing people together. Supporting the growth of these hobbies here in Australia is our ultimate goal, and we are only just getting started!
