      To answer my own question below:

      "That bag looks awesome! Were it to become a reality, what could it hold? All the expansions? Both the regular Catan gaming board and the Seafarers board? That would be a big bag..."

      I finally watched the video in Update 57 -- and the bag WILL hold all the boards and expansions.

      OH GOD I NEED DIS.

      @Kenny Key You're either willfully trolling or have been ignoring the Updates.

      When will we get the seafarers boards promised in the first kickstarter? And the answer better not be when you get another kickstarter funded. I am surprised they still let you on this site. The delay is ridiculous.

      "Is a creator legally obligated to fulfill the promises of their project?
      Yes. Kickstarter's Terms of Use require creators to fulfill all rewards of their project or refund any backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill. (This is what creators see before they launch.) This information can serve as a basis for legal recourse if a creator doesn't fulfill their promises."

      I was willing to just mark this one off as lesson learned, don't back projects by this guy again. It has been so long that I have actually forgotten twice that I am still owed a Seafarers board. If Bill attempts to require backing another Kickstarter in order to fulfill an order from a previous Kickstarter it would seem that he is in violation of Kickstarter rules. I will wait patiently for the purchase I made but I won't back another project. In this case it looks like I would be well within my right to ask for a refund.

      Am I wrong in thinking some of us choose more middles over a wait for full seafarers. I thought we were given choice but it's been ages and now I don't recall

      @Gloria (& Mike): I'm pretty sure when he refers to the "significant discount" he is comparing what we already paid to what new backers will be paying in the new kickstarter campaign. You shouldn't have to support the next kickstarter in order to get what you already ordered.

      Seafarers board:

      In a previous update, it was stated that fulfillment of the Seafarers board at all pledge levels will be defaulted to wait for the true Seafarers board, That indicated that no more money would be required. However, now you state that the "current backers will be receiving a significant discount on what the new Kickstarter backers will need to pledge in order to receive a Seafarers board." This indicates that we must pay more money to receive the board that we initially funded in the first Catan kickstarter project. I do realize that an investment in any business is a risk, and I did accept that risk; however, changing the requirements to receive the Seafarers board does not, in fact, make for "happy customers," which you indicated was the "only thing that matters" in your previous update.

      I really like the prototype for the new Catan bag. I meet with other gamers on a weekly basis, so I transport my Catan board games a lot. The new bag will keep everything organized and compact. Love it!

      Creator Mike Linford on March 20

      Bill, are you saying that we will have to pay more on the new kickstarter to receive the seafarers board we should have received on this Kickstarter?

      @Joel: I don't know if you missed the hullabaloo late last year, but if you look at Updates 49-55 (Start here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/trammel/the-official-settlers-of-catan-gaming-board/posts/646473), you'll see the whole sordid affair. In short, the initial Seafarers designs won't work, and the only realistic way to recover the capital that was spent on the failed prototypes is another kickstarter. You shouldn't have to contribute if you don't want to in order to get what you ordered.

      @Brett: Not sure where you got that impression, but this is hardly the first project to do this. I don't see anything in the Terms of Service about this. Since the second kickstarter is to get the capital to fund the development of the seafarer boards, I don't know how you suspect that Bill could get us the Seafarers board before the capital needed to develop the molds is received. Ifyou can figure that out, please let us know.

    14. Brett.small

      Creator Brett Schenker on March 10

      I'd hope that those of us waiting on the Seafarers portion will receive it before a new Kickstarter project starts..... because I'm pretty sure that violates Kickstarter's terms of use, creating a new project to pay for another one.

      Hi everyone, apologies for the delay in updates, will likely have an update in about two weeks. Automating our logistics/fulfillment process has taken a fair amount of work, coupled with ramping up retail distribution at the same time. Have recently hired an employee to help manage that. Have been working evenings on RCH, and the new Seafarers Kickstarter. Also met this morning with a tactical bag manufacturer (hint, hint ;-).

      Creator Joel Purvis on February 17

      Resource card holders, 3-4 & 5-6 Seafarers... What gives? I'm pretty laid-back with the pacing of this production, but I ultimately figured I get this stuff at some point. If Catan were like any other game (and not so popular throughout the world), it'd be out of print by now!

      @ Shophie. If you backed 'The Complete Catan Board Package' Bill has promised both the 35% discount voucher as well as the $35 coupon (to be used at separate occasions).
      If on the other hand you back just a 'Seafarers Catan Board' option you will only get the 35% discount voucher.

      Hi Bill. I sent you a message asking for clarifications. I have seen people mention there is both a 35$ coupon and a 35% coupon for the site. Can this be confirmed / clarified? If it's only the 35% coupon I prefer the 3 expansion pieces.
      Thanks!!!!

      Hi Bill,

      Looking at the mockups provided by Brad and Josh, I'm definitely in for the extension pieces instead of the second board... hopefully it's not too late to make that call. If my second Settlers board is already on its way, I see that the extensions are now available at your online store, so I'll pick them up that way. Many thanks for all of your efforts to make things right on this, and I'll be back when you're ready to produce the Seafarers board.

      I backed this project a lonnng time ago and I never commented. Now, in weepy gloom of the early morning, I am compelled. I backed the project enough to get one of the vanilla-version walnut boards as an anniversary present for my wife and I and it was just pretty perfect. It arrived according to schedule and it is beauteous. I love getting the updates now, and I feel very happy to be a part of such a successful KS project. All hail Catan Boards!

      Nevermind, my pledge is suppose to get me the board for 5-6 players for base Catan and Seafarers, so send whatever, I guess.

      Creator Joel Purvis on November 14

      If it's not to late to make the request, please send me the three additional extension pieces for Seafarers variants. I can never get more than four people to play Catan anyway.

      You said it was 'shares' before?

      Way to go with the strong argument, and backing it up...

      Now you are saying unsecured loan?

      With an unsecured loan, the borrower still owes the money, and you can pursue them for it. Just you don't have a particular asset to recover if they stop repaying the loan. They still owe the money. And they would have to declare bankruptcy to get out of paying.

      So Kickstarter is not an 'unsecured loan.'

      Kickstarter is giving money on an IOU to a deadbeat relative - one you are pretty sure is going to spend it on drugs.
