Now THAT is a Big Puzzle!
As we own some of the largest puzzle presses in the world,
we started thinking BIG. As in 2000 pieces worth of big.
Yes, we are introducing 2000 Piece Puzzles for 2006,
which measure a whopping 38" x 26" when complete,
include a neat fold-out poster, and are packaged with
hot-stamped blue metallic foil. All of which serve to
have these puzzles leap off of your shelves, land into your shoppers' hands, and then swiftly
proceed out the door. Hopefully through your checkout counter first, though.
Captain Jack Sparrow and Will Turner
have been recently spotted on new
300 piece puzzles. If you have any
information on these marauding pirates
- who appear on bonus posters inside
the puzzle as well - contact your local
magistrate. Closeups are on page 62.

Did you know that every day,
over 10,000 people in America
turn 50? How about that over
85 million Americans today
are 50 or older? This growing
demographic has a lot of buying
power, and is home to a lot of avid
puzzlers. Some older Americans,
though, are turned off by the fact
that most "adult" puzzle artwork
is on puzzles with 1000 pieces
or more, often with frustratingly
small pieces and only a small
picture on the box to guide them.
In response, Buffalo Games is
pleased to introduce our 300
Piece Large Format puzzles, with
larger pieces and a big fold-out
poster as a guide. It's the perfect
size for that older puzzler, and
is great for a family project for
grandparents and grandkids, too.
See page 61 for our new collection
- we have timeless images from
Norman Rockwell and beautifully
detailed backyard birds from the
Hautman Brothers. This is a fast
growing market segment that you
should be sure to capitalize on!

Our 20th Birthday, Our New Company Logo
Buffalo Games was started
in 1986 with this guy.
Yes, a stand-up, visor-
buffalo. A lovable but
obscure logo, as we never
made any poker games.
In 1996, we funded high
level research to determine
a suitable abbreviation for
Buffalo Games Incorporated.
The surprise finding? "BGI"
Yet, even with hundreds
of millions of "BGI"
impressions, people always
refer to us as..."Buffalo"
And so, it is with great excitement that
we unveil a new representation of our
company - although it is something
that we have been all along.
Now that we have it right, we look
forward to prospering with you
for at least another 20 years!
