43 – The Family Gamers Podcast – Jeff Johnston Interview

Jeff Johston

Jeff Johnston designs games as a hobby. He is the mind behind Pair of Jacks Games, and Anitra sat down with him at Granite Game Summit 2017 to talk about 3 of his published games: MoonQuake Escape , Flashlights & Fireflies, and Toasted or Roasted.

 

MoonQuake Escape is published by Breaking Games. Plot your escape from an alien prison. Bluff your fellow players and use special powers to uncover their character card, but beware! If your character card is uncovered, you’ll be stuck back with the rest of the prisoners, too!

Flashlights & Fireflies, published by Gamewright, has a similar bluffing mechanic, in a much simpler game for children. You and your fellow players are playing flashlight freeze-tag and racing to get to home base first.

Toasted or Roasted is published by Education Outdoors. Toast your marshmallows and get your fellow players to “roast” (burn) theirs.
