Buffalo Games adds pieces to its puzzle through two deals – Buffalo News

Buffalo Games has acquired two Massachusetts companies.

Buffalo Games has added new pieces to its business puzzle, acquiring two Massachusetts companies.

The Buffalo-based maker of games and puzzles bought Ceaco and Edaron. Ceaco makes jigsaw puzzles, board games and brainteasers, using brand names such as Gamewright and Brainwright. Edaron is Ceaco's contract manufacturer for jigsaw puzzles.

Ceaco is known for its Thomas Kinkade and Disney jigsaw puzzles, according to Buffalo Games.

With this acquisition we will be able to bring new products and innovation to the market even faster than we have done in the past," said Nagendra Raina, Buffalo Games' president. "Ceaco has a talented staff and great relationships with retailers and licensors, making it a fantastic fit for Buffalo Games."

Ceaco was founded in 1987, one year after Buffalo Games was launched. Two years ago, Buffalo Games was sold by its founders to an investment group that included Raina and Mason Wells, a private equity firm.

Prior to the two acquisitions, Buffalo Games had 110 employees. The two deals bring its total headcount to about 350 employees.

Buffalo Games has faced a challenging year, due to restrictions on how it could operate. When the Covid-19 pandemic struck, the state forced businesses deemed "nonessential" including Buffalo Games to halt production. The interruption hit at a time when people were stuck at home, looking for diversions and piecing together jigsaw puzzles to pass the time.
