Gaming Guest of Honor

John Goff

John Goff hails from Spokane, Washington. For the last decade or so, John has been employed as a writer and game designer, both full- and part-time, for Pinnacle Entertainment Group. Although he’s authored, co-authored, or edited over two dozen works for Pinnacle, John is best known for his first solo project, the Dime Novel Night Train. Pinnacle’s Shane Hensley assures us, however, that there is no truth to the rumor that John receives a royalty for each player character slain while playing that adventure.

John has been involved with Pinnacle’s forays into miniature rules dating all the way back to the original Great Rail Wars game. John was also the creator and developer of Pinnacle’s recent Deadlands Noir, set in and around the New Orleans of the Deadlands setting.
