It has been pointed out to me (while I was griping as usual about the number of people who come up to my booth at conventions and say "I thought you were out of business" when a simple Google search will pop up my web site in the top three) that lots of web sites hang around long after the company is gone, and if my home page hasn't been updated recently, folks might assume I've disappeared also. So I am going to make a point of changing this date often. It may take you awhile to figure out what I've changed, since this site has grown like Topsy, and has hundreds of pages. But you can often find out what I added or changed by going to our news page.

Hey, thanks for all the good wishes regarding my cancer diagnosis. I started treatment a couple months ago, and the prognosis is very good, but I will probably be very slow at responding. And more thanks for those of you who bought something in the last couple weeks. All the extra money helps. See you at Origins in a couple days?? -- Rick

BIGGEST BIG NEWS!The 2018 Flying Buffalo Convention was at the Hotel Valley Ho - the place we had the very first Flying Buffalo Convention! We had a great time. Check out the convention page for details on next year.

BIGGER BIG NEWS! We finished our kickstarter to make the Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls. Check it out at T&T. You can check it out to see all the cool things we made. We have shipped all the rewards (if you haven't received yours, or at least a note that it has been shipped, contact me.) AND NOW: the rulebooks are available for purchase by those who weren't able to support the kickstarter! Go to the tunnels & trollspage. We ran out of the hardbacks, and then we ran out of the paperbacks, but we got in 500 more of the hardbacks. You can order them now from the T&T page.

BIG BIG NEWS!Our Nuclear War spinner app is now available in the itunes store. (and still available for droid in the android marketplace):
You swipe your finger across the screen to start it spinning, and when it stops, the voice of Claudia Christian tells you the result (in a Russian accent!). Really cool stuff. Be sure and update this app if you bought it more than a few months ago. There is a new edition with two different versions of the spinner. For now, it is just the spinner. When we can, we will put the whole game on smartphone. More details on

The year 2010 was Flying Buffalo's 40th Anniversary. I started running my first play by mail game of Nuclear Destruction (for a fee) in January of 1970. So, I decided to declare 2010:


Watch our "news" page, or sign up for our mailing list, or follow me on Twitter (BuffaloRick) to hear about some cool special deals that I'll be offering. Plus visit us at the many game conventions I attend, as I will be giving away some valuable prizes. And come to our convention in Scottsdale July 20-22. NOTE: You must make your reservation by July 2 to get the special rate and to count towards our room committment.


If you are a game designer, or a would-be game designer, I am very sorry, but we are not accepting outside game designs at this time. The truth is, I already have more game ideas than I will ever have time or money to publish. However if you would like to write a solo adventure or a gamemaster adventure for T&T or MSPE, send me an email and ask for the guidelines. Thanks.

NOTE: There are a lot of pages (A LOT) on this website, which has grown kind of like Topsy. On one of these pages is a SECRET WORD. If you can tell me what this secret word is, I will send you one of our famous bumper stickers FREE. Have fun looking for it!
