A Better Rule Book

Quite a few of you have reached out asking for clarification on the rule book. I've been working with Playford Games to address your feedback. I think what we have address most of your concerns. Playford Games has posted the updated rules on their blog at rules.cartographygame.com.
One of the core strategies of Go and hence Cartography is "Two Eyes". Playford has a stratagy guide in the works, but if you can't wait you can learn more at http://www.pandanet.co.jp/English/learning_go/learning_go_7.html

Four Player Games

Playford Games also posted a short explanation of the 4 player rules in the post mentioned above. You might be surprised to hear there aren't any additional rules for four player games. You should however keep in mind it doesn't matter who is surrounding a group. If a token(or token group) is completely surrounded it is captured.

Birch Production Update

I'm very sorry that the birch games have not shipped yet. In our last post we highlighted a quality control issue with the production of the birch tiles. We are still working to resolve the issue but unfortunately 2015 is coming to a close and the manufacturer has shut down for the holidays. Once they start back up we will continue working toward a solution.

Merry Christmas,
Jon Adams
