With the release of Cartographers Heroes, a brand new Skills expansion is available. As with the original Skills Mini-Expansion, you will find 8 new Skills cards and a rules card. Some cards in this mini-expansion require Cartographers Heroes to play, as a couple of them require knowledge of the hero cards work. This mini-expansion can be combined with the original Skills Mini-Expansion, which can be added to your pledge as an add-in in the pledge manager. It allows the players to spend their collected coins to break the rules of the game in a unique way once per season.
The Skills Mini-Expansion 2 is included with any pledge of Cartographer Heroes.

Cartographers Heroes is divided into four seasons. At the end of each season, players earn reputation stars. The phases of each season are:
A player reveals the top card of the Explore Deck and places it face up in the center of the table so all players can see it.
All players simultaneously choose one of the terrain types and one of the shapes depicted on the explore card and draws it on their own map sheet.
At the end of the turn, the players check to see if the season is complete and players either move to the Scoring Phase or return to the Explore Phase.
Once the players have met or exceeded the time threshold on the season card, the season is complete and players score their map. A new season begins or the game ends after four seasons.
Cartographers Heroes is the sequel to the critically acclaimed map-drawing game Cartographers. It includes all-new map sheets, scoring cards, explore cards, and ambush cards with unique abilities.
Cartographers Heroes can be played on its own or mixed with components from the original game for a greater variety of gameplay possibilities.
