Tape It or Die
According to Gretchen Peregrine's Tape it or Die blog, John and his friends, Curtis Ellenton, Kevin Meyers, and Brian Scherbey, were playing a board game in the South Plaza when Gretchen came across them. Their behavior deterred her from escorting them to the Tape it or Die hide out. The four men managed to slip their business cards in Gretchen's pocket just as she was leaving.
Brains Over Brawn

In the mission Brains Over Brawn, Chuck finds John and his three friends, Curtis Ellenton, Kevin Meyers, and Brian Scherbey, huddled over a board game in an unfinished shop in the South Plaza mall. Chuck attempts to convince the costumed men to join him so he can lead them to safety at the Fortune City Emergency Shelter. However, they refuse to listen. As soon as Chuck mentions that there are women in the shelter, John and his friends finally agree and follow Chuck to the safe house.
Alternatively, if a female survivor is in Chuck's party, John and his friends will immediately join Chuck after noticing that he has a girl with him.
