Flying Buffalo Cards and Card Games

NUCLEAR WAR CARD GAME: A comical cataclysmic card game for 2-6 players of all ages. A humorous confrontation between touchy world powers as each player attempts to sway his opponents' populations with diplomacy, propaganda, and finally nuclear weaponry. Little old ladies defect in electric cars and the dread SUPERGERM spreads devastation! Takes about 10 minutes to learn and about 45 minutes to play. Invented by Doug Malewicki in 1965, this game has remained popular for over 35 years. Anyone who ever had to participate in a "civil defense drill" by hiding under his or her desk in grade school, or ever had a bomb shelter in the back yard should play this game. One of the few games where it is possible to have NO WINNERS (often everybody loses!). You have to play it to believe it. This game's a blast! It was choosen for Games Magazine's "Games 100" for 1984. And in 1998, at the Origins Game convention in Columbus Ohio, Nuclear War won the Origins Hall of Fame award for one of the best games of all time! "The quintessential 'beer-and-pretzels' game: simple, fast, easy to learn, and loads of fun. Minimal prep time: shuffle the decks and deal." - Tim Kask, Adventure Gaming Magazine. $29.95
Skippy the Supergerm
NUCLEAR ESCALATION CARD GAME: intended as the 'expansion set' for Nuclear War, this game can be played separately or shuffled in with Nuclear War to make a bigger game. It brings the devastation up to date with cruise missiles, MX missiles, new Special cards, sneaky Spies, and Space Platforms. (And don't forget 'Skippy' the feared Super Virus). This game won the HG Wells Award for best SF Boardgame of 1983 awarded at Origins 1984 even though it is a card game! (Boxed, 148 cards plus our special "radioactive" nuclear misfunction die). $29.95 misfunction die separately - $2 (unfortunately Nuclear Escalation is currently out of print - see our webpage to find out if it is available again.)

Use your country's Special Power, secrets, secrets, & propaganda to gain control of, or eliminate your enemy's population. When that fails, all out war breaks out as players launch stealth bombers, submarines, scud missiles, and fire atomic cannons at each other. Nuclear Proliferation adds special trading sessions, new secret and other special cards. A humorous look at the futility of Atomic Warfare in the post-cold war 1990’s & can be played alone, or combined with Nuclear War, Nuclear Escalation, or both! $29.95
