Who are we?

Meeple Solutions is a  501c3 charity organization comprised of gamers who believe that there is good that can be done by humans sitting down at tables with other humans. We've been around in various forms and places for about 10 years.


Our mission is "building community through positive gameplay"

What do we do?

We educate people how about modern board gaming and let people know there is more to life than Monopoly and, well, Life. We have a large board game library  we bring to events. You can find us at conventions all across DFW running Learn & Play events, tournaments, and social gaming.

Our Outreach

We work on projects that we feel improve our community through gaming. We've setup and run monthly Family Game Nights at the children's hospitals so the families can maintain authentic experiences. We've volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House to play games. We ran a summer school course teaching kids different games and how to play well with each other.  We ran a board game component at the Girl Scouts camp retreat. We  hosted our own Don8Con event to raise money for Extra Life. 

We do what we must because we can.

Other Ways to Support Us

If you are unable to support us directly by donating above, there are many ways to support us.


Facebook

Follow us on Facebook! Commenting on our posts makes them more visible meaning we save on advertising costs. Sharing our posts gives us a greater reach which saves us from paying for promotional fees! Facebook can also run fundraisers during your birthday that list Meeple Solutions so you can ask friends to donate in lieu of a gift. You can find us at  https://www.facebook.com/meeplesolutions/ 


Amazon

When you shop Amazon, use Smile.Amazon.com and set your charity as Meeple Solutions. At no cost to you, Amazon will make a donation to us on your behalf each time you make a purchase. They match 0.5% of your purchases as a donation to us which may not sound large, but if you shop regularly on Amazon just your normal spending habits may mean one additional board game we can purchase for the kids to play!

How Our Gaming Community Helps Our Larger Community

Getting ready for an upcoming Extra Life gaming event!

Meeple Solutions is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on bridging the geeky nerdy realm and the mainstream business community through workshops, programs, and positive game play. We especially enjoy hanging out with children who have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) plus home-schooled students.


We also raise funds through Extra Life, an online movement dedicated to helping kids through the power of play. Here you can see Tiffany (Founder of Meeple Solutions) being excited to meet Alex, the champion of our Extra Life team!

An unoccupied room at Cook Children's Medical Center

Every year, gamers around the world unite in a day of play to support their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. The 170 member hospitals provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, and charitable care. 


Meeple Solutions is committed to helping kids recover faster through the power of gaming! Join us and/or donate through our team page at https://www.extra-life.org/team/MeepleSolutions

Volunteers helping with Extra Life for CCMC!

You can often find us gaming and/or helping at conventions held across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex throughout each year. See our Schedule of Events for more information. We'd love to meet you if you're available!


Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We wouldn't be able to benefit as many children as we do without the generosity of supporters like you.
