The number crunching is complete. I'm delighted to lay out a two phase roadmap for adding the wooden seed tokens we all want!
Eleventh Stretch Goal - $90,000
16mm WOODEN SEED TOKENS!
This goal will add 36 wooden seed tokens with screen-printed seed designs on both sides. This is in addition to the 40 wooden druid tokens unlocked previously, tricking out your copy of Lagoon with a grand total of 76 wooden tokens! This will complete the upgrade of all tokens from punchboard to painted wood.
Several things to note about these tokens:
- They 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!
- The game will still include all the punchboard seed tokens.
- These seed tokens (16mm) are smaller than the punchboard seed tokens (19mm). If that saddens you, please take a look at the next stretch goal.
- This goal provides 12 wooden seed tokens in each energy, whereas there are 16 punchboard seed tokens in each energy. Twelve tokens is actually the number all prototypes of Lagoon have used, which is plenty. We're doing more punchboard seeds because having extras may be handy and we have space for them.
Twelfth Stretch Goal - $100,000
19mm WOODEN SEED TOKENS!
This goal will upgrade all 36 wooden seed tokens from 16mm to 19mm. The larger size is the same as the punchboard seed tokens.
This would truly make Lagoon more beautiful than I ever imagined possible, with full credit to backers for the idea!

Catching Back Up
Laying the ground work for the seed token stretch goals took way more time than I expected, but I hope you'll agree it was worth the wait!
As a result though, I've fallen a bit behind in thanking new backers (welcome!), responding to backer messages (sorry!), and laying out new Destiny Puzzles. But sleep is another thing I've fallen behind on, and at this point catching up on that needs to be my top priority. Once I've rested, I'll get back into the usual crazy swing of things!
