franjos Spieleverlag is a small publishing enterprise in Germany run by Franz-Josef Herbst. Whilst the production standards and graphic design have been basic and efficient, franjos has over the years published several clever and engaging games. Their most popular own game is Billabong, and they're also produced German editions of Can't Stop and Black Box.
They use a form of vinyl mat to make the game boards. This is a signature of their game design. The vinyl is rolled up into a cylinder, making most of their game boxes long and thin.
