Wooden Seed Tokens!

Posted by David Chott (Creator)

WE DID IT! All of us will now get a 16mm set of 36 wooden seed tokens with every backed copy of Lagoon: Land of Druids. I can't tell you how thrilled I will be to use these myself in a game!

The funny thing is when backer Silver first suggested wooden seed tokens two weeks ago, I honestly laughed out loud at how implausible that seemed to me. It is surreal where you amazing backers are taking Lagoon! Here is what I wrote that backer:

"That would be a very tough stretch though, since there are 36 seed tokens in the game compared with only 20 druid tokens. If we somehow blow past all the planned stretch goals, this might be possible with a lot of overfunding. But the odds are not high, I'll be honest."

$100,000: Larger Wooden Seeds!

Upgrade all 36 wooden seed tokens from 16mm to 19mm. This larger size is the same as the punchboard seed tokens. 

Just a reminder that the wooden components will NOT be added to the base game of Lagoon sold at retail, making them a nice non-exclusive perk for backing Lagoon on Kickstarter! For all the details on the wooden seed tokens, see update nineteen.

$125,000: Something Awesome!

Adding more awesome to your backer copies of Lagoon: Land of Druids has gotten trickier as the total cost of enhancements has risen. The unit cost of the 76 wooden tokens added to Lagoon is fixed, and doesn't decrease as we add new backers. So there's very little wiggle room.

But if you keep telling the world why you're backing Lagoon and we expand the circle wide enough, I think we can still squeeze one more bonus in! There are several remaining enhancements I'm investigating. They're nowhere near as ambitious as a baggie full of wooden tokens, they're still very nice!

      Amazing. I hope you had the weight of the packages in mind when adding all the wooden pieces.

      The current size of the wooden seed tokens is 16mm, which is the same size as the 32 normal druid tokens. The 8 Eldrid tokens are 19mm, so upgrading the seed tokens to 19mm is actually better to help distinguish them from druid tokens.

      I know you already promised a stretch for larger seed tokens, but I think I'd actually prefer to keep them smaller. It keeps some visual variety going aesthetically and helps distinguish them from the other tokens from a practical standpoint.

      Also, have you considered having the tokens laser engraved rather than painted? It makes them less colorful of course, but it's a really classy and rustic look that I think goes well with Lagoon's theme.

      Any chance of a quick poll to see if maybe more people prefer the smaller seed tokens?

      I think there's real value to quickly being able to distinguish between the types of tokens, and different sizes can help with that.

      I tend to like it when components are differently sized for different purposes.

      I really like the wraparound vines on the box, gives it that solid, monolithic look.
