What's New?

This page last updated: April 16, 2019 

Hmm. I seem to be lax about posting news here. Sorry about that. Too many places to post news! I send an email to my mailing list, post it on facebook, tweet about it on twitter, send an email to our distributors and retailers, and "oops!" forgot to post it on my NEWS webpage! I do my best to keep it all up, but you should probably sign up for my mailing list!

A very long time ago, (in the 1970's) John McEwan of McEwan Miniatures produced some fine T&T miniatures. He recently announced that he is going to produce them again (along with some other incredible 28mm fantasy figures. You can find them at http://tin-soldier.com/monsters.htm I'm pretty sure the Blue Beetle God is from City of Terrors. The minotaur is from Labyrinth of course. Tavashtri is from Deathtrap Equalizer. And I believe the Cave Troll is supposed to be Grimtooth himself. If you buy a set of these, and paint them up, please send me a photo!

We've printed them on cardstock, and making them available at conventions or on our website for $1 each. And a rubberized (neoprene?) version of it for $12.

A small game company called "One Per Cent Inspiration Games" published four Lost Worlds books under license. I have been selling those books from my webpage, but I recently sold the last of them, and tried to order more. The fellow who published them wrote back and told me that all remaining copies have "been recycled". Sadly, he was not selling enough of them to keep them in print.

Some time ago, I announced that we had run out of the double solo adventure book, Amulet of the Salkti/Arena of Khazan. Then I found a box of them behind some other boxes in the storeroom, and announced it was available again. Recently we sold the last of that box, and I marked it OOP again. Then we had that big rainstorm, and our offsite warehouse got flooded. While Bill and I were sorting through the damage, throwing away all the soaked merchandise, and rescuing that which had been higher up on top of other things, we found yet another box of them. So it is available again. Take advantage and buy all five of the pocket book sized solo adventures in our weekly special.

Now available, Adventurers Compendium- 9 solo adventures and 3 GM adventurers from the pages of the long out of print Sorcerer's Apprentice magazine. 88 pages, $14.95

We also have an updated version of Dungeon of the Bear at the gamemaster adventure page. Hmm. That's a switch. I announced the new version of Dungeon of the Bear here on the news page, and then forgot to post the link on how to buy it on our Gamemaster Adventures page! Well it is there now - go take a look!

Hobby Japan has released three new books in the Queen's Blade Grimoire series: Goldy Golden Axe; Tina, Mermaid Princess; and a new photo version (with DVD) of the Alicia Dark Master of Wonderland featuring Vanessa Pan (who I am told is a famous Taiwanese cosplayer).

FINALLY AVAILABLE FOR IPHONE (still available for droid)
We have created an app for iPhone and droid. It is the SPINNER from Nuclear War. 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. For now, it is just the spinner. When we can, we will put the whole game on smartphone. It is available for purchase on www.flyingbuffalo.com/radio-app-tive.htm.

One reason we (Ken, Steve, and I) want to create a "deluxe" edition of T&T is because our friend Patrice Geille has created a new FRENCH version of the rules, and it really looks great. If you can read French, we recommend you buy this book!

Bad news: I seem to have run out of the Tunnels & Trolls 5.5 rulebooks. So I don't have rulebooks, box sets, or Summer Special #1. I thought I had another box of them out back, but I can't find it. So.... Ken and I (and Steve Crompton) are hard at work coming up with a new "deluxe" edition. Meanwhile if you need the rules you can go to the T&T solos page and buy one of the pocket sized double adventure books, or the past Free RPG Day adventure booklets. Each has a short version of the rules in front, sufficient to play all the solitaire adventures.

For now, it is just the spinner. When we can, we will put the whole game on smartphone.

The nice folks at Hobby Japan, who publish those Queens Blade books have given me a few pvc and resin statues of some of the characters. I'm going to keep the one of Menace (The Egyptian Princess), but I don't really have a place to keep the rest of them. I've got one of each, and I'm going to sell them to the first person who offers me $50 (each) for the 1/8 size ones, and $100 (each) for the 1/6 size ones. The 1/8 size ones are called "cast off" which I think means that some more of their clothes are detachable. (If they aren't already riske enough for you!) I'm only going to post pictures of a couple of them, since I only have one of each, and don't have time to photograph them all. Here are some pictures of Nanael the Angel.

Here is a picture of Leina.

I also have figures of Airi, Mellona, Nowa, and Ymir in similar style for $75.

Here are some pictures of the 1/6 size Resin & Cold Cast statue of Airi, which is $150. I've found this for sale on the internet for $173.

I also have a 1/6 size Resin & Cold Cast statue of Leina also for $150.

I'm going to be taking these statues to Kublacon to show them off. If you want to buy them from me, tell me as soon as you can, as if anyone offers to buy them at Kublacon I'm going to sell them for the stated prices. Note that the price does not include postage. We can negotiate for how I'll send them.

First person to offer me that much for one can have it (plus postage of course.) Remember issue #5 is the one that has an original Roger Zelazny story in it.

The rulebooks are here. We have mailed all the preorders. Sorry for all the delay. Origins convention kind of got in the way! This new version includes the complete Buffalo Castle solo adventure, plus Ken St Andre's "Chronology of Trollworld". Artwork.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: I recently found about 140 sets of the Flying Machine books in our warehouse while moving boxes around, and put together 140 Flying Machines games. I reprinted the charts that (I thought) go with that game. Unfortunately it turns out I got the wrong charts! If you recently purchased the Flying Buffalo version of the Ace of Aces Flying Machines, you can't really play it until you get the right charts. As soon as I get a set of the correct charts, I am going to put a pdf of them for download on our website, and of course will mail a copy to anyone who asks for them. If you bought your set directly from us, I have your mailing address and I will mail you a hard copy set. If you bought your set from your favorite local game store you will have to download the pdf, or tell me your postal mailing address so I can mail you the correct charts. I apologize for the inconvenience. The last time I actually played Ace of Aces was more than 15 years ago, and I didn't have a complete set to compare the charts. Rick June (Origins) releases from Flying Buffalo

#6006 Nuclear War Card Game Special Limited 40th Anniversary Edition $60.

There will only be 1000 copies of this special edition, and each will be signed by the inventor and the artist. Because this is a LIMITED EDITION, we may not be able to fill all initial orders. We are doing 500 copies now, and another 500 copies in two or three months. Includes Nuclear War, plus the deluxe population deck, and some of the booster cards. (Out of print now, of course. We will probably do another Anniversary Edition in 2015.)

DICE OF WRATH NOW AVAILABLE: The dice game by Rick Loomis, using the Knights of the Dinner Table dice mentioned below, has been shipped to the distributors. You get five of the FULL COLOR dice, plus a score pad and the rules for $14.95. SPECIAL BONUS CONTEST: there are FIVE glow in the dark KODT dice, which have been randomly inserted into five of the games. If you receive one of these five dice, bring it to us at Origins or Gencon or any other convention (or mail it back to us) and we will give you a special prize!
UPDATE: No one ever found the flow in the dark KODT Dice. Now I'd kind of like to have them back. If you have purchased the Dice of Wrath game from us, or individual KODT dice, check them to see if they glow. I will give you a nice prize if you send them back to me!

TUNNELS & TROLLS RULES PREORDER We are totally out of the T&T rules right now (however you can purchase a copy of the City of Terror pocket sized solo adventure for $3, and it has a short (quickstart) version of the rules in it.) but we are planning to reprint it with the Buffalo Castle solo adventure added as part of the book. I intend to have this available by April, but you never know for sure. We will be charging at least $15 for this new book (instead of the old $9.95). But if you want to preorder it, and pay for it now, you can have it for $10. (plus the usual shipping fee). Note that you pay for it now, and may not get it for a couple of months. But your book will be shipped the day after we get it back from the printer, and you get a 33% discount. (And if the reprint is delayed for any reason you can at any time ask for your money back.)

The online Nuclear War card game site is now open for business. You can go online and nuke away to your heart's content. The game will allow 2 to 6 people to join in the radiationfest, all for a low monthly fee of $10 per month. (Plus for the same price you get a lot of other cool games.) Click on this banner to go to the webpage and join in the fun: www.gametableonline.com Note that we plan to start holding online Nuclear War tournaments again, probably this coming June, and in order to participate you will need to be a member of Gametable Online.

We have some back issues of the popular Knights of the Dinner Table comic available, including some really old ones. A list of those available can be found here.

We have received some Villians and Vigilantes games & supplements. A list of those available can be found here.

TOM: The Origins Metagame. This is a trading card game based on game companies, game designers, and games. This was released at Origins (every attendee got one free pack), and attendees had a great time trying to get a complete set. The rules and a complete cardlist can be found at http://www.flyingbuffalo.com/ogamer.htmYou can buy these cards from us at $2 a pack (plus shipping). See the details here.

Knights of the Dinner Table dice! $2 each. The six sides show BA, Bob, Dave, Sara, Brian, and "Hoody Hoo" (all these terms including KODT are trademarks of Kenzer & Co, and used with permission). See the artwork here, and buy them from your local store, or order direct from Flying Buffalo.
FLASH! These dice were nominated for "Best Game Accessory of 2001" for the Origins Awards. You can vote for the Origins Awards every year at http://www.originsawards.com (note that you do not have to vote in every category - just vote for the ones you are familiar with

The Nuclear War and Nuclear Proliferation cards are back from the printer, so both games are now back in print, at $29.95 each. (Sadly, Escalation is now out of print and probably will remain out for a couple months). Note that the new decks have all new, FULL COLOR artwork. And the Nuclear War game has two NEW cards. (Sorry, you cannot buy the two new cards separately. But you can buy a "Missile deck" (just the missiles, secrets, and new cards) for $7.50. PLUS we have something new: blank Nuclear War cards. You can buy a deck of 56 blank cards, all with the Nuclear War logo on the back so you can shuffle them in with your regular cards. Make up your own secrets! Create odd-ball warhead sizes! Replace missing cards. Only $10 for a deck of 56 cards.

ATTENTION: We can now accept DINERS CLUB credit cards along with American Express, Discover, Mastercard, and Visa. Just put your Diners Club card number in the space on the order form.

NUCLEAR WAR and NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION now have NEW ART on the cards. The backs are still the same as all the other cards, but there is new art on the faces, and we are including TWO NEW optional cards for Nuclear War. You can see them on This PageThe price is now $29.95

Lost Worlds Fans: Shadis Magazine, issue #28 contained two free Lost Worlds characters that haven't been printed anywhere else, and that issue was an instant sell-out. The characters are Veltigg, the Forest Shade with Great Ax and Wolf Pack; and Mattha, Huntress of Denglade with Sword and two handed spear. Note that if you buy ONE magazine, you get TWO Lost Worlds characters, but to have them play against each other you will have to have two magazines. I have managed to lay my hands on a few copies of this magazine, and will sell them to you for $15 each.

Also: News Flash! The Nuclear Misfunction dice in Nuclear Escalation and Nuclear Proliferation will be "glow in the dark" again. Not only that, they will be printed in FULL COLOR. This is something you've just got to see to believe. Starting now, one of these dice will be included with each NE and NP game, but if you've already got the games, you should buy one of these dice for your personal collection! $2 each.

At 1133 AM on December 7, 2000 (a date fraught with dire implications!) UPS delivered the print run of the two KODT Lost Worlds books (El Ravager and Teflon Billy.) We are shipping them to the distributors on Dec 8 (friday) and all the distributors should have them by Dec 15th. If you are a retailer, be sure your order is in. If you ordered them directly from us, you should already have them by now as we shipped individual orders a long time ago.

We just ran out of one of the back issues of Sorcerers Apprentice that had been included in the "SA 5-pack" (issue #16 is no longer available) so now it is the "SA-4pack" for $4.

We have also run out of the T&T Rulebooks 8 1/2 x 11" size, which means we are also out of the T&T box set. But we do plan to reprint that rulebook soon (perhaps in March). We are out of the pocket sized rulebook and do not plan to reprint that.


We have been selling some of the leftover Nova Games products from a few years back, for Alfred Leonardi. Among them have been licensed "BattleTech" books (Rifleman, Wasp, Locust, Griffin and Warhammer). The first three are $4 each. We only have a few left of the Griffin books and they are all autographed by Doug Schuler, so we are charging $10 for those. When they are gone, they will most likely NEVER be reprinted. We are already totally out of the Warhammer books.

We have several different special offers (discounts for purchases) located in various places on our webpages. I have put a single listing of them all in one place at: The Bargain Page.

Lost Worlds Yellow Spells! Available now: Lost Worlds Spell Cards set E: 6 Yellow Spells and 7 Red Spells. $5. Order today.

Two KODT Lost Worlds now available Sorry, fans, we've been having some trouble getting the artwork right, and we were in the middle of not moving. (See NOT MOVING for details!) We have two of the KODT Books done - we'll send out an email to everyone on our mailing list when the other two are available. It's just been a series of disasters, misunderstandings, delays, and mistakes. (Sigh). Available now for purchase are Teflon Billy with Fireball (Brian) and El Ravager with Hackmaster +12 (Dave). They are $8.95 each. You can see the cover art here.

LOST WORLDS FANS: Marvel Comics and Crusade comics came out with something called "Battle Books". They are all designed by our Alfred Leonardi and work just like Lost Worlds with one exception: they are NOT compatible with the other (our) books! (Drat) This of course means that you cannot fight Spiderman against Flaming Cherry. These came out in what effectively was limited edition, and I don't think they are making them anymore. Sorry, I'm all out of them.

INDIA PAKISTAN WAR: New bonus pack for Nuclear War Card Game.

This is the rules for combining our NUCLEAR WAR CARD GAME and Mayfair Games' INDIA RAILS. You play India Rails, but whenever you draw a 'load' card, you may draw a special card (provided in the bonus pack) that allows you to draw a Nuclear War card. If you end up with a combination of Nuke War cards that fits (missile and warhead) you can Nuke a city that will delay your opponents. Included in the bonus pack is an orange china marker so you can mark the radioactive areas on the board (no one can build rails there). For $5 you get the rules, 15 cards, the china marker, (and an extra set of population cards, which you don't need to play this variant, but you can always use a fresh deck of population cards). It's available NOW from Flying Buffalo Inc for $5 (plus the usual $2 per order for shipping).

LOST WORLDS FLASH! Flying Buffalo has obtained a license to print 4 new Lost Worlds books based on the popular Knights of the Dinner Table (c Kenzer & Co, all rights reserved) characters, Bob (Knuckles), Dave (El Ravager), Brian (Teflon Billy), and Sara (Thorina). These books will sell for $8.95 and we hope to release them around Oct 15, 1999. To see the covers, click Here

We have added some new questions (and answers) to the Nuclear War FAQ page. We have also added a new CARDLIST to list all the cards in the various Nuclear War games & expansions.

INew Product Releases: Someone reminded me that the T&T computer game comes with a color map of the Dragon Continent (the world of T&T), and that some people might buy it for that alone. If you are a T&T fan, and haven't bought the computer game, but would like this map, we will sell you one for $10. For that matter, if you are a T&T Fan, perhaps you should know that we can sell you a package of 25 computer generated T&T characters for $2. Order as many as you like, each package is printed out individually and is unique.

FLASH!!! The NUCLEAR WAR CARD GAME won the Origins Awards HALL OF FAME July 4, 1998 at the Origins National Game Convention in Columbus Ohio, as one of the best games of all time.

Flying Buffalo released at Origins a new product for Tunnels & Trolls: the T&T Bonus Pack. This package will contain a reprint of the long out of print solo adventure ABYSS by Paul Creelman (a solo adventure that will let you get a dead character back to life), plus the "Survival Kit" from the old (also long out of print) T&T Gamemasters screen (charts for the gamemaster), plus a NEW short gamemaster adventure by James Walker "Tomb of the Mummy King", plus an expanded treasure generater chart, a random monster encounter chart AND a pack of T&T character sheets. All this for only $9.95

This product is intended for direct sales to consumers at conventions and through the internet, so it is packaged in a zip lock bag with black & white artwork. However, we will make it available to distributors and retailers at their normal discounts. Product #8406

Foreign Language Traps, Citybooks & T&T: (Sprechen Sie Deutsch?) If you are interested in German, French, or Japanese editions of some of our books, click here

T & T CLUEBOOK: We have had many people ask us for a cluebook for the Tunnels & Trolls Computer Game. Unfortunately this book is out of print at present, but as an interim solution, we are going to provide a page where players of the computer game can leave clues and comments for each other. We may eventually compile these into a cluebook of our own. .

ORIGINS CONVENTION: Flying Buffalo has had a booth at every Origins since the first one in 1975. Unfortunately I never thought to save the "programs" from these shows, and now I wish I had. If anyone has an old "Origins" game convention program from previous years, and doesn't really care about keeping it, how about sending it to me, Rick Loomis? I'll trade you a Flying Buffalo Phone Card for it, if it's one I don't already have. Email me (rick at flying buffalo dot com) and tell me which year it is from, and I'll let you know if it's one I need. (And if you aren't willing to part with it in return for a collectable long distance phone card, let me know what else you would like instead.)

ACE OF ACES We now have some cover art available online for one of the aces of aces sets. For more details click Here.

Some of the items, we don't have in big quantities. We will be able to offer them to individuals on the web, or at conventions, or through our catalog, at the full retail price, plus $3 shipping per order (in the USA). First come, first served, these probably won't be reprinted.

For Lost Worlds: We have a few of the old "In The Ruins of the Ancients" box set. This is an expansion set of items and scenarios and includes the Man in Chain and the Skeleton books, and a 3-d plastic map. It does NOT include the miniatures that originally came with this set. $14.95

We also have some of the "Treasure Hoard of the Cold Drake" scenario sets. This also contains a 3d map, with magic items and scenarios. It does NOT include the Cold Drake book. $4

The following items, we have enough quantities to sell to retailers and distributors. You can order from us at your normal discounts.

For Lost Worlds:
Ninja fans: we have a bunch of NINJA GIMMICK SETS. Product #1411. $4 each. As I understand it, the original Ninja books came with 4 "gimmicks". Three were the same for everyone, and the fourth one was a "rare one". These are the rare ones. You get the sleeping powder, kusari-fundo, itching powder, and poison blade. Alfred is going to be reprinting the Ninja shortly, so it will be available again.

LOST WORLDS BONUS PACK: Product #60205. $14.00 We will be putting together a special package deal containing the four Runesword Lost Worlds books (Bith, female mage; Cal, fighter hero; Endril, elf bowman; and Hathor, troll) plus two extra Red Spell cards for Bith, and 2 of the Ninja Gimmick cards for Cal, plus instructions for how to let Cal use Gimmick cards. This is a great starter set to introduce someone to the Lost Worlds dueling system, and the characters are great for tournaments. The gimmick cards that will be included in this set are some of the ones in the GIMMICK SET, plus you may get "Blinding Powder".

New as of Halloween: Grimtooth's Dice of Doom! This set of five dice includes a Grimtooth Die, a Trap Die, and three Death Dice (glow in dark, clear, and orange) plus a set of rules for ways you can use this odd bunch of dice. Only $5.95.

We also now have the Nuclear Destruction pbm rules online in html format at ndrules.htm. Plus we have the Galactic Conflict rules and the Election Year rules available.

And we have a copy of the Heroic Fantasy rules in html so you can look at them with your browser. Take a look..

We have added an online MAP and star INDEX for Riftlords
Riftlords is our introductory play by mail game, where the rules, and the first three turns are free.

. There are now two new reasons to join a Starweb game. [1] We have new "Starweb Victory" pins that are given to winners of Starweb games. If you won one or more of the old pins, you probably would like to get one of the new versions. But they are not sold: they are given to winners of a Starweb game. The old pins are all gone, so winners of current games will get the new pin. [2] We have introduced a new rule. Now players may select a "sign" or "greeting" that will be displayed on opponent's printouts on the turn they meet. Thus you can tell potential new allies your address, phone number, email address, etc the instant you meet in a game. Rules for the new "signs" will be sent to players on the first turn of any new game. Join up now. It only costs $5 to get into a game, and $4.50 a turn (every two weeks) for the first ten turns.

4-Way Rubber Bands! What are they? A convenient way to hold your game box together, especially if it is crammed with supplements, notes or other stuff too big for the box. See a picture.
