Jason Tagmire is a game designer from South Jersey. He has been designing and self-publishing board and card games since 2007 under the name Button Shy, and won The Game Crafter's Resource Game Design Contest with his family-friendly resource management game, Sandwich City.

He is best known for reducing our 16th president to 16-bits in his card game / video game, Pixel Lincoln. He's the designer of the AEG card-throwing game, Maximum Throwdown. He was also co-set designer on Quarriors: Quest of the Qladiator, co-creator of the pop-culture site Fruitless Pursuits, and was the Kickstarter curator for the Philadelphia chapter of the International Game Design Association.

His company, Button Shy, is a small, independent publisher that does things a little bit differently. They primarily make 18 card wallet games - pocket-sized games that come packaged in a small vinyl wallet and make for great games to have on the go. Some of their most popular games are Sprawlopolis, Tussie Mussie, and Skulls of Sedlec. Button Shy releases a new Wallet Game every month and hand assembles every single one.

Currently, The Last Lighthouse is on Kickstarter. Check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/239309591/the-last-lighthouse
