Flying Buffalo to Continue After Death of Founder, Rick Loomis

Flying Buffalo Inc., the company started and run for almost 50 years by founder, Rick Loomis, will continue after his death, says company manager Steve Crompton.

Loomis, a co-founder of GAMA (The Game Manufacturers Association), died August 23 of complications from Cancer. He was hours away from celebrating his 72nd birthday.

Crompton said the company, with the help of Loomis’ sisters, is working on fulfilling recent Kickstarters including Mercenaries Spies & Private Eyes RPG and Elven Lords Revisited: a Make 100 Solo Adventure.

In a statement to fans, Crompton said, Down the road there will also be new products for T&T, MSPE, Nuclear War, and Catalyst books like new Traps and Citybooks. They may not come as quickly as we’d like right now, as there is a lot to do in regards to taking care of Rick’s estate and Flying Buffalo. But rest assured, we are soldiering onward. That’s what Rick wanted us to do – and we plan to do just that.”

Crompton said they had several projects in various stages of completion. He also said the they were still accepting donations through GoFundMe to help with medical bills, funeral arrangements and other outstanding bills.
