Buffalo Games was started in 1986 with the idea of bringing new kinds of games and puzzles to families, friends, and people across America. Our first runaway bestseller, the double sided World's Most Difficult Jigsaw Puzzle, virtually defined the specialty jigsaw puzzle and helped establish us as a market leader and innovative pioneer.
We began our own manufacturing operation in 1996, and launched a line of traditional jigsaw puzzles soon thereafter - pairing superior domestic craftsmanship with the best artists and licenses in the world. Some of the best examples are puzzles featuring Photomosaics, Norman Rockwell, Disney, Audubon, Simpsons, Burpee, and the Hautman Brothers. Catering to all family puzzling needs, we cut puzzles in 300, 500, 750, 1000, and 2000 piece counts.
In 1998, we introduced our first board game in a long time, the wildly successful iMAgiNiff. Currently in its 10th record-breaking year, iMAgiNiff has sold over 1 Million units and is a bit of a cultural phenomenon. Other successful family and party games in our line include Last Word, VisualEyes and The T-Shirt Game, all of which follow our guiding principle that games should be easy to learn and fun to play, making those family get-togethers and parties that much more fun and rewarding.
Fast forward to 2007, and you'll find Buffalo Games operating from an 87,000 sq ft facility in Buffalo, NY (ah...so that's where the name comes from), employing 81 full time people, and having a blast creating products that are a lot of fun for you. Our new and distinctive offerings this year include 3 card games, 9 jigsaw puzzle series and an innovative puzzle preservation tool - Puzzle Presto! Our focus has been on games and puzzles that go beyond the traditional boundaries of play, and so we've added features such as specially shaped cards, jewelry, voting wheels, dice, markers, free garden seeds and more.
Leading this expansion charge is a new lineup of card games: iMAgiNiff, Monster Maker and Nacho Loco. These games appeal to a wide variety of people and will create hours of enjoyment for gatherings of both friends and family. On the puzzle side, we continue to expand our array of licensed jigsaws, with tremendously popular properties like Spider-Man, Pirates of the Caribbean, Peanuts and Disney, and specialty interests including Burpee, Fairyopolis, and the Spirit of Horses.
Through it all, we are guided by our misson - to make life more fun and rewarding. Fun is what we are all about, from our product line to our work environment to our consumer and business relationships. At the same time, we are passionate about making life rewarding, by crafting puzzles and games with superior play value and unparalleled quality. We strive to have everything we do meet both ideals, knowing that you, in the end, will be the judge. So sit back, explore the site, check out our products and have fun with Buffalo Games!
