At GJJ Games I'm not a game publisher.  I enjoy designing games, but I haven't set out to self publish.  Maybe someday that will happen, but for right now my hope is to have some of my games published by other companies.  In the meantime I have been adding some of my games to PoD (print on demand) sites like The Game Crafter and Drive Thru Cards.  These are mainly intended to allow me to have close to production quality prototypes of some of my games and also allow others interested to get their own copies of my games without printing their own.

If you are interested in purchasing any of my games please visit the links below.  I do receive a very small commission from sales, but my main interest is in getting the games out there, so my earnings from these purchases are as low as I can make them while still covering the printing fees.  Several games are a pay-what-you-want price so all you have to do is cover the printing fee.  Anything extra is greatly appreciated and is split with the printer according to their commission rates.

Thank you for any support and I hope you enjoy the games you purchase (reviews would be appreciated if you did, feedback would be appreciated either way).

2 Players - 10 minutes
 at The Game Crafter
Price: $6.99 ($4.99 without packaging)

In ChromaWerks two players each use 9 double sided cards (shuffled) to make a 3x3 grid.  Each quadrant of each card is machinery of a different color and players must take turns completing one of four actions to try to get all four center blocks to be solid colors.  The design has various types of machinery in different colors: Red Gears, Yellow Drive Belts, and Blue Pipes.  There are also sections of 'broken' machinery with images of damaged components on a black background.  Damaged or broken machinery can't be used to complete blocks.

Snowball Fight
2 Players - 15 minutes
 at Drive Thru Cards
Price: Pay What You Want ($1.96 minimum)

Snowball Fight is a micro deckbuilding and deduction game for two players that only contains 18 cards. In the game players go head-to-head with their arsenal of snowballs in an attempt to be the ruler of the Blizzard Realm!

In Snowball Fight each card has two possible actions, one on each half of the card (top and bottom). The action a player takes each turn depends on the direction they play the card. The game is played in two phases, a quick Drafting phase where players build their initial arsenal and then the Snow Assault phase where there is all out war! Play is simultaneous and players try to attack each other with an arsenal of snowballs, slushballs, and the dreaded iceballs and snow covered rocks while also trying to dodge attacks and build up their weaponry!

4th Grade Confidential
3-5 Players - 10+ minutes
 at Drive Thru Cards
Price: Pay What You Want ($1.96 minimum)

4th Grade Confidential is a microgame of deduction, bluffing, and cunning. The idea is based on my friend Neal Simon's comic book project called 4th Grade Confidential, starring his kids and their friends (including my kids). The premise is that a 4th grader named Adin is a private eye at his school, working to solve the great mysteries of elementary school, like who stole his sister's stuffed pink bunny.

In 4th Grade Confidential one player is the Sleuth while 2-4 other players are the Characters. Each round the Sleuth is trying to solve a different mystery. The Sleuth has six Sleuth Cards and the other 12 cards are dealt evenly to the Characters. The Sleuth has four turns to try to figure out which Character has the Target Item for that round by calling out various attributes and seeing who has items with matching attributes. Through careful deduction and use of actions the Sleuth and Characters all try to be the player to end up with the Target Item.

The game can be played in a single quick round, or in a longer game with each player taking the role of the Sleuth.
