One Year Anniversary
The Lagoon Kickstarter campaign went live one year ago today. I was optimistic, but had no idea the project would fund in just 3 days and eventually blossom to 3,503 delightful backers. The warmth and kindness of backers has been a blessing ever since. I absolutely love meeting backers face to face at conventions, and appreciate all your supportive messages. Thank you for making Lagoon a success and being a wonderful backer community!
Personally, the past year has been transformative. Of course I changed careers and learned a lot of new skills in the process. More profoundly though, the empowerment of my Kickstarter success sparked unprecedented personal growth for me. Your support has enabled me to positively alter the course of my life, not just my job, and I'm sincerely grateful for that.
Next week I'll be bringing two prototype game designs to Baltimore for Unpub 5, a convention dedicated to as yet unpublished game designs. It's totally open and free to the public, so if you live in the area come say hi and try out any of more than 100 different prototype games!
Lagoon Promo Tiles
I created two Lagoon promo tiles that were available at BGG.CON this past fall. There's been a lot of interest in them by folks who couldn't attend the convention. I'm working on making these available to you via a promotion I'll roll out in February. Stay tuned!
