Lagoon Breaks $100,000!!!

This achievement upgrades the 36 wooden seed tokens from 16mm to 19mm.

Backed copies now offer the full deluxe wooden experience!

Your full complement of 76 wooden tokens also includes 40 wooden druid tokens in 8 different factions, shown above. These wooden tokens are NOT included in the base retail version of the game.

This elevates Lagoon to a STUNNING level, beyond anything I imagined!

I've got the most amazing backers a druid daydreamer could hope to have. You all have catapulted Lagoon hurtling past my initial stretch goals. Then you said, we can dream bigger, let's make our druids out of wood! I scrambled to lay out a plan for them, and then you dreamed up wooden seed tokens. I was skeptical at first, but you all proved me wrong!

It feels so good to be challenged by backers who have helped guide Lagoon to the best possible place -- truly better than I could imagine on my own. Only now do I fully understand how Kickstarter is supposed to work. Someone like me, with an idea, connects with friendly people like you, who place their faith in me and offer a mountain of insight and encouragement to elevate that idea to its pinnacle. I'm so grateful for your input, because together we've collaborated to make Lagoon as exquisite as can be. Thank you!

$125,000: Something Awesome.

If Lagoon achieves $125,000 in funding, each backed copy of Lagoon will include a bonus site tile! This promotional tile will introduce a new site type to Lagoon, the totem. Totems are game changing sites that don't behave like the others. Just one totem can completely change the feel of a game, so this bonus site will pack a punch!

Fabulous New Art!

Please thumb each of the following images on the BoardGameGeek website. You'll need an account, but it only takes a moment to setup. Thumbing raises Lagoon's profile and draws new backers!

Sharing Lagoon

Please consider sharing a link to the Lagoon Kickstarter (http://kck.st/1aMYGJM) with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and via smoke signals. I think the first two work best, but wherever you feel comfortable sharing Lagoon will be helpful.

I want to grow the world of Lagoon, and share more of its mysteries with you. There is a story behind every character you see in the art, and the following figures each play a major role in the history and lore of Lagoon: Elixona, Grizznant, Gruu, JokulmasSylphina, and Sylvant. They're all part of an overarching vision I have for Lagoon, a world whose destiny is forged by the making and unmaking of its enchanted lands.

I would love to create expansions to this game as well as new games set in the same rich world of Lagoon! And fortunately, the more successful this campaign becomes, the better footing I'll have to build Three Hares Games into an incredible publisher that can deliver more of the awesome you deserve to expect! I will try my best, anyway. :-)

Backing Multiple Copies

This has been a very frequent backer request! Once I hit send on this update, I'll be buckling down to figure out how I can make this happen. With luck, I will sort it out today. Watch for a quick update when I do. At the same time, I may make another ADVANCE DRUID reward tier available, as many of you have been asking for this. Stay tuned in druid land!

      @David: Nice job with the tokens, how it is now clear which side is refreshed and which is exhausted. I just noticed that on the home page, you say that the new promo tile--which I'm confident we'll unlock--won't be included in the base game. That's fine, but I'd like to ask that it not be KS-exclusive. Personally, I feel that gameplay elements should not be KS-exclusive. It's fine if there is some extra art or a particular token, but it's sad when there is a great game that you can't get the complete version of because part of it is exclusive and can't be reprinted without reneging on previous promises.

      @David, Congrats on reaching this stretch, hopefully the next one will be fulfilled before the deadline as well. I'm just curious if the colors for the factions are finalized yet or if what's shown above are the final choices?

      @Referee Found it! Thank you for the info.

      @TheOnlyProphet: There has to be a green icon with a thumb to the left when you look at the image. You have to click that.

      How do I "thumb" an image on boardgamegeek? I'm new to that site.

      If this game measures up to the expectations (as I expect it will), I will be happy to continue backing Three Hares Games!

      +1 to what Chad said about the purple.

      So excited to get this game with such amazing production quality!

      Yay!

      And we haven't even hit the critical 48 hours when all the last minute people jump on board.

      Love it. The tokens look awesome, and I'm quite eager to see what awesome something we can unlock with the totems. I am curious, though. Wouldn't that extra site unbalance the forces?

      This is great news!

      Just one comment/suggestion, can either the dragonfly or the stag be a different color so they are different colors instead of both purple?

      Congratulations on this achievement!

      David,
      What a nice and sincere update. For me this is the best of KickStarter: helping someone realize their dream and vision. Very happy to be on board.

      Oh yah. Totems?
      Awesome!

      Jungkeun: Thanks for the feedback! The emblems on the two sides will actually be two different colors. The exhausted side (outlines) will be gray instead of white. Between the different icon shape and the color change, I think they will work quite well. I'll talk to my graphic designer about the fern though, and we'll see if we need to take any special steps for that emblem.

      David, looks amazing! Can't wait to hit $125k! One quick suggestion re the wooden druid tokens. I see what you did with the outlines vs. filled (which makes production cheaper, I'm guessing, rather than painting each side differently). They look great except for the fern -- just from the picture it looks hard to distinguish the filled fern from the fern outline. My suggestion is to either (a) rather than use outlines print a white circle around the symbol -- for all 8 sets, that is; or (b) instead of a fern frond, use a leaf so that there is more of a distinction.

      If anyone's thinking of joining BoardGameGeek to thumb those photos, take a moment to poke around the site and its various forums. It's one of the best communities on the internet, and as a board gamer, I couldn't imagine living without it.
