Wooden Seed Tokens!
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!
Beautiful Box Rendering
This is a wonderful 3D rendering of the game box designed by Lagoon's graphic designer, Peter Wocken. If you have a moment, please go thumb this box image on BoardGameGeek to help maintain our steady draw of BGG backers!
