Flying Buffalo CEO and founding GAMA President Rick Loomis has announced he has cancer. Loomis said, “I’m told it is very treatable. However I expect to be somewhat distracted for the next few months.”
Loomis, 71, founded Flying Buffalo in 1970. The company publishes Nuclear War, a card game about blowing up the world, and the Grimtooth’s Traps series of books for any role playing game. The company was the first publisher of Tunnels and Trolls in 1975. Flying Buffalo is also believed to be the oldest game company still run by the original owner.
“I expect to still be here for 2020, when Flying Buffalo has it’s big 50th Anniversary,” Loomis said.
