David F's Board Game Name Mashup Generator is too cool and amazing not to be used, therefore ladies and gentleman, we are proud to present:


Jumping Salami Game's's - Game Design Mashup #3

JS Games are looking for the latest entry into their already successful catalogue of games. Have you got what it takes to create an amazing game? Do you feel as if you are up for the challenge? Do you want to receive a guaranteed contract to produce four squillion* games? If so, read on:


So how do I win 20GG?
1. Click here.
2. Press "refresh" a couple times and find a hilarious and ridiculous game name combination.
3. Post the name in here (one name per post) and give a brief description or pitch for that game. You do not need to post any pictures, just descriptions. The game can be a dexterity game, euro, ameritrash, abstract, physical, family game, card game, RPG game, story game, anything you want.
4. You are free to submit as many names as you want, but you must use a new post for each name & description you submitted.
4. Most amazing, funny, subtle, bizarre, 'serious', and humorous game will win 20GG** at a point arbitrarily decided by our mascot Zebbidy.
5. We at JS Games are not interested in publishing "good" games. Games that will inspire you to think "wow, that might actually be interesting to design" should be sent to Y-Man, Playfair or EFG. We are not in the market for these type of games. To get an idea of the kind of thing we like, check out our back catalogue for the kind of thing that JS Games lies to publish:

Most 'nearly plausible' and hilarious entry wins 20GG arbitrarily decided by me or any of my BGG friends

*Or any other such imaginary number
** Which ever entry makes me laugh the most will win the geek gold, this decision may or may not be swayed by constructed arguments and forced proof as to why JS Games should publish your game.
Any GG tipped to this post will be given straight to David F in thanks for his great work in creating the Board Game Name Generator

Spindizzy Your 6! Spindizzy Worlds + Check Your 6!

In this chaotic party game all you need to do is keep your head (and the contents of your stomach)!

One player is selected and given a topic, such as will float, can be eaten or lives outside. The player must stand up and spin around for 60 seconds. Another player will call out objects/animals and the player must correctly state whether they fit in the category or not. For example if the category was found in a fridge, then the correct answer to milk would be yes, to hamsters would be no. If the player manages to answer 6 correctly he receives 10 points, otherwise his score is number of correct answers- number of incorrect answers. The first player to 50 points wins!

The Siege of Higgins
(The Siege of Port Arthur + Inspector Higgins)

Higgins is huge! The largest man on the planet. You take charge of one of the teams that need to keep Higgins fed or he will fly into a tantrum and destroy the town. Build factories to produce the food that Higgins so desires, hospitals to tend to your wounded workers and walls to keep Higgin's bulk in check. The player with the most buildings left standing at the end of the game is declared the town's hero.

Slap Fighter - Slap Dragon+Dragon Fighter



Love boxing but hate black eyes and broken teeth? Then Slap Fighter is for you! Why spend time training and practicing footwork when you can just close your eyes, run in and slap randomly at the other person?

Sky Skidmarks
(Sky Combat + Super Skidmarks)

You are a pilot at a tourist resort. You and your fellow pilots take passengers up for tours around the island. However, each of you compete with the secret goal to scare the well... you know, out of your passengers with daring aerial maneuvers.

(I've already got it half designed in my head - so tempted to finish the design and play test it!)

October 1917
October War + AirWar: 1917

A gritty euro game coving the trials and tribulations of the Bolshevik Revolution.

More/less seriously,

51st Whiz
51st State + Math Whiz

A fresh layer of snow has fallen and it's time to see who has the best aim and control. Bid for longer words, eat beets or carrots for color multipliers, and stay away from the snow cones.

Big Mountain Blind Ninjas?
Big Mountain 2000 + What Blind Ninjas?

Its a Race to the top of Big Mountain. Players take control of one of the many similar colored ninja meeples while wearing sunglasses that obscure most of your vision. Play cards with varying degrees of blurry text, players try to reach the top of big mountain while trying to read these cards and remember which off-white-ish colored meeple was theirs.

Can you make it to the top without moving your opponents meeple? Can anyone read the cards well enough to call you out for your winning play?

See who reaches the top of Big Mountain First in this exciting game.

Dead Tennis Stars
Dead Island + World Tennis Stars

"New brains, please!"

Resurrect the exciting grudge-match between zombie Fred Perry and Gottfried von Cramm.

A dexterity-game with a difference. Instead of flicking the disc you repeatedly hammer on the table.

Be prepared for the long haul in a game where foot-faults and time-penalties dominate the scoring.



"You cannot be serious!"

P.S. If you think this is bad taste, just be grateful I didn't go for the first mash-up name suggestion that caught my eye: Hunt Christ
P.P.S One for fellow Brits, the title that made me laugh most was: Alan Hansen's Romana

Restaurant Arkham
(Restaurant Empire + Manicomios de Arkham)

Your friends invited you to an all-you-can-eat party in some fishy restaurant.
Become the king of the party by eating every single dish served!
Try exotic dishes such as the Shub-steak, Deep-soup, Byakhee legs, but avoid the nasty Cthonian salad, which will induce some deserved mutations!

The last sane/human character wins the game. Ties go to the character who ate the most different dishes. If tied again, everyone loses!

Letters from Trenches
(Letters from Whitechapel + Soldiers: Decision in the Trenches)

World War I - A no-man's land separates two opposing armies.

To go over the top would be a foolhardy decision to find sparse cover from enemy machine gun fire. But you are not just any fool, you are tasked with delivering correspondence to and from the soldiers in the trenches.

Succeed and your side's morale goes up giving your machine gunners extra accuracy to stamp out the opposing side's letter carriers. Fail and you will be nothing but a post script in the book of history.

You could run fast but attract the attention of the enemy, or you could crawl and be a harder target to hit. Obstacles on the battlefield and weather effects add an element of luck to both help your mailman and hinder theirs.

You can win either by delivering five sets of letters to or from the homefront, or you could win by eliminating all the opposing side's mail carriers. This is a two player game and can be completed in about 20-40 minutes depending on skill level. Demos avaiable at Gencon and the KS will launch next month.

(I put way too much thought into this...)

Highway Tennis
Highway Hazard + International Tennis

Tennis had been steadily losing ratings so to boost them the stakes were raised. You play one a convict competing on an Autobahn competing to either win your set or set up your opponent to get pasted.

Players move between lanes and must choose between playing safe or risking it all for a return.

Dino Rally [Dino Wars + Lombard RAC Rally]

Dinosaurs race around in monster trucks along a prehistoric racetrack, chomping off pieces of other vehicles and performing fierce attacks like 'tail whip'. Mechanics would perform similar to Formula D but would involve a heavy element of PVP.

Think Mario Kart... but with dinosaurs

Kangaroo: The Jumping Doom

(Kangaroo: The Jumping Game + Dicemaster: Cities of Doom)

Krypto Kangaroo has escaped from a future expansion of King of Tokyo. Fly your helicopter around the city, either dropping kangaroo bait (what do kangaroos eat, anyway?) in an attempt to lure the kangaroo towards your opponents' properties (it's partially random - I picture it leaping around like a hyperactive 8 year old on a pogo stick) or using your gun to assist the army in defeating the monster. Whoever has the highest proportion of buildings to rubble when the kangaroo is finally subdued wins the game.

High Dwarf: The Card Game

High Noon + Red Dwarf: The Card Game


Playable with either one standard deck of cards per player or with the cards we'll be producing via our upcoming Kickstarter campaign.

Each player is in charge of a team of twelve dwarves (the face cards in a standard deck). Each team has been tasked with growing the tallest and/or most abundant marijuana crop. Crops are grown by balancing the cards against and on top of each other like a house of cards. Each house is an individual plant in the team's crop.

Cards are selected four at a time, and all must be played per turn, though you can have as many plants going at a time as you want. But watch out for the joker cards, they'll set fire to whichever plant you decide to add them to, destroying that plant and removing those cards from play. Also, any plants that collapse are removed from play, too.

Points are scored for numeric score of remaining cards included in each crop, vertical height achieved by dwarves, and purity of grown results (can you have a plant comprised of entirely one card suit?)

Again, watch this space and all the inappropriate forums here on BGG for news about our planned Kickstarter campaign. Here's a sneak peek at some of our plans: Cthulhu-themed incentives and hemp-based stretch goals!
