Flying Buffalo is being sold to an undisclosed backer. The news was revealed in a post on Trollbridge by current manager Steve Crompton.
Flying Buffalo games was founded in 1970 by Rick Loomis. In 1975, Loomis picked up and published Ken St Andre’s Tunnels & Trolls RPG. Both Tunnels & Trolls and Flying Buffalo are still going, although sadly, Rick Loomis passed away in 2019. Steven Crompton now runs the company.
Yesterday’s Bundle of Holding deals on Tunnels & Trolls will be the last Flying Buffalo do and maybe the last chance to get some of these games.
In the post Crompton says;
OTHER NEWS – FLYING BUFFALO TO BE SOLD SOON Sale PENDING
I’m letting you all know now – once the new company takes over Flying Buffalo, they have told us they plan to remove many of the items that are currently on our Drive-Thru page. So get them NOW before they are gone FOREVER…
Fans are speculating who the new owner could be, although it’s worth noting that Crompton does say that the deal is still pending. It must be fairly far advanced to be made public, though.
One candidate is Goodman Games, who have been buying old licenses and have worked with Flying Buffalo in the past.
It’s less likely that Ken St Andre’s other company, Trollhalla Press is involved.
Clarification: Rick Loomis’s two sisters own Flying Buffalo, Steven Crompton is the manager, which is the role referred to in this article with the phrase “Steven Crompton now runs the company”.
