Wolfgang Kramer (born 29 June 1942 in Stuttgart) is a German board game designer.
Kramer formerly worked as an operations manager and computer scientist, but since 1989 he has worked full-time on game design. He has designed over 100 games, many which have been nominated for or have won the Spiel des Jahres. He frequently collaborates with other designers, notably Michael Kiesling and Richard Ulrich.
A common feature of German-style board games, where players' scores are recorded on a track around the edge of the board, is known in Germany as the Kramerleiste in honour of Wolfgang Kramer. Kramer himself first used this method of score-tracking in his 1984 game, Heimlich & Co.
