Where “Flying Buffalo” Got Its Name

Over at ICV2 there’s a nice little article about old-time game company Flying Buffalo, along with a brief interview with founder/owner Rick Loomis, wherein the mystery of where the name of the company came from. Fascinating trip down memory lane; I was deeply into play-by-mail games in the 1980’s, and naturally played a lot of FB games. Nuclear War/Nuclear Escallation remains a favorite of mine as well, and Tunnels & Trolls is, of course, one of the longest-lived games around. Enjoy!


What would Dungeons & Dragons have looked like if Gary Gygax had been allowed to keep developing it? Please, if you haven’t done so already, consider supporting my Kickstarter for the Adventures Dark and Deep Players Manual, going on now through December 19th. I need your help to make it a reality!
