Press Release: Two Cartographers Announcements

Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale has been Nominated for 2020 "Gamer Game of the Year" (Kennerspiel des Jahres)

MAY 18, 2020, MADISON, WI -- Thunderworks Games is proud to announce that Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale has been nominated by Spiel des Jahres for the 2020 Kennerspiel Des Jahres award!

Cartographers allows 1-100 players (but who's counting?) to draw shapes on their own map sheets and compete for the highest reputation over four rounds (or seasons). Both solo gamers and groups of every size are challenged to achieve a series of variable scoring objectives while trying to mitigate the effects of monster ambush cards.

In recent months, the game's ease-of-play has allowed Cartographers fans to compete virtually over social networking and meeting platforms. We've been thrilled to see so many families and friends enjoying Cartographers all around the world.

Cartographers is Expanding

With the growing popularity of Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale, we are excited to announce the new stand-alone expansion, Cartographers Heroes! This expansion can be played on its own or combined with Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale. Heroes will feature all new cards and maps, as well as the ability to unlock heroes to ward off invading monsters.

In addition, three new map packs are in development that can be played with either version of Cartographers. Each provides new map sheets, cards, and a unique and challenging way to play the game. The map packs are:
  • Afffril: Plane of Knowledge
  • Nebblis: Plane of Flame
  • Undercity: Depths of Sabek
Current plans are to launch Cartographers: Heroes and the map packs later this year.
