Flappin' Jack's Flipout is an unpublished game from Peter Newland and Chris Rowlands. It is a dexterity game about filling pancake orders faster than your fellow chefs. Chefs pick up face-down pancakes placing them face-up on their griddles. Chefs must flip those pancakes face-down to cook them. Any pancakes that fall during the flipping process are discarded. The first chef who thinks the he or she has filled the order rings the bell and tries to present the correct pancakes. There is a memory element to this game that I find compelling despite the fact that I dislike memory games.

Peter and I spoke about the origins of this game and the challenges with creating a dexterity game. We also discussed what it has been like trying to get publishers to consider a game this silly.
