Who is Wolfgang Kramer anyway?

Wolfgang Kramer has been designing dice, card & board games since 1974. The game designer hails from Stuttgart, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany🇩🇪, was born in 1942 and currently lives in Stuttgart, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany 🇩🇪. He is also known as "The old Fox".

Kramer's first game Tempo he developed in 1974 at the age of 32 - so he has been designing games for over 48 years. Famous Kramer games are for example El Grande, 6 nimmt! or Tikal.

Parallel to his studies in economics, Kramer began to develop a racing game. This was not to use dice to move the racing cars. Then, while working as an operations manager and computer scientist, he developed his new motion system into an abstract game called Tempo and published it in 1974, later modifying Tempo into a car racing game called Formula One. While continuing to work full-time, he designed and published several more games, two of which won the Spiel des Jahres award. Kramer is also the author of mystery novels, including, for example, "The Palace of Riddles" or "The Riddles of the Pyramid".

Full-time game author since 1989

Kramer became a full-time game designer in 1989 - the first one in Germany. He has now designed over 200 games, many of which have been nominated for or won Game of the Year. He has frequently collaborated with other designers, most notably Michael Kiesling and Richard Ulrich.

The Kramer Bar

In 1984, Kramer invented a player scoring bar for his game Heimlich & Co. that went around the edge of the board. This type of scoring bar became a feature of German-style board games and is called the Kramerleiste in his honor.
