Buffalo Games Announces Newest Addition To Its Board Game Line


Interchangeable Board Game RUIN is Company’s First Light Strategy Family Board Game

Buffalo, NY (February 2009) -- Buffalo Games, the makers of multiple award-winning party games, card games and jigsaw puzzles, will feature its newest addition to its family board game line up, Ruin, a new strategy board game exploring the hidden treasures of a lost Mayan Empire, at the 2009 American International Toy Fair scheduled for February 15-18 in New York City.

Ruin, created by game inventors Terry Miller Associates, is a ruthless race to fortune and glory for players ages 10 and up. The game is inspired by the Mayan culture as great power and trickery have always been attributes of the ancient Mayan legend. “Strategy is critical in Ruin,” said Paul Dedrick, president of Buffalo Games. “It is a fun game for the whole family and our first game to offer such strategic play values.”

Two to four players embark on an exciting adventure around an unpredictable and interchangeable game board toward the center of a Mayan ruin, where hidden treasures await. The completely unique three-dimensional board gives Ruin stunning visual appeal, while allowing players to actually change the path on every turn, through interchangeable game cards that are inserted into the multi-level board. Along with course changes, these cards also serve to wall off opponents or offer secret passages providing escape for the victor. Players can decide whether to change things to help themselves or thwart their opponents instead.

Ruin includes the Interchangeable Game Board, 8 Pawns, a 20-Sided Die, and 50 Interchangeable Game Cards and retails for $29.99.

As part of its “Green” initiative, Buffalo Games exercises environmental considerations by choosing 100% recycled paperboard content for the game board and package.
