Just received in the mail a lovey, well crafted and VERY timely game package from my new friends at Buena Onda Games buena onda means “good vibes” in Spanish, and as founder Patrick Groft explained in his kind note, it speaks directly to his company culture and values.

Their signature crocheted pocket disc Frisbee the “Maya Flya“, pays tribute to the Mayan families who make all of their 100% all-natural, fair trade products by hand, in the mountains of Guatemala.
