Newport Beach, California — Playford Games has inked a license agreement with the designer of Cartography, Jon Adams, to bring a new and innovative abstract mind game to the market. Cartography is a territory claiming game with a twist. The rules are built on the classic Go game, which originated in ancient China as a strategy game for the cultivated. Cartography uses interlocking triangular tiles to create a map for land expansion. In an effort to control the map, players create, claim, defend, and capture lands. Because the map evolves and expands as the game goes on, players are challenged to exercise their foresight and patience in a battle of wits and strategies.
“The Cartography game complements Playford’s mission to publish games that inspire players to develop their strength, mind, heart, and souls,” said David Stennett, President of Playford Inc. “With its beautiful presentation and unique game mechanics, Cartography will encourage today’s strategy players to elevate their skills, as well as delight experienced Go players with exciting new challenges.” For more information, see http://playfordgames.com/about-us
Launched on Kickstarter in October 2014, as seen at http://kck.st/1DfngOG , Cartography successfully received funding exceeding 145% of its original goal. Praised for its elegant and beautiful design, the Cartography game appeals to enthusiastic Kickstarter backers with its inventive and ingenious mechanisms that present every play with a different experience and pleasure.
The creator of Cartography, LA-based Jon Adams, chose to partner with Playford to publish a game he invested years to create, refine, and perfect. “Playford Games’ excellence in quality and artistry has already helped improve Cartography,” said Jon Adams, “Their experience in publishing will help bring Cartography to the market in a better, faster, and stronger way.” For more information, see http://playfordgames.com/cartography
