Can anyone tell me more about games published by Oink Games?

I was directed to their website following some recommendations for their games and found the design to be very appealing.

As I am unable to read Japanese however, I am having a lot of trouble trying to decipher the website's content using Google Translate.

In particular, I would probably be interested in a special Oink Games Gift Pack that was on their news page.

Any idea how I should purchase that and can anyone tell me more about the games included in it?

Thanks!

Oink games is awesome! They always have a giant stall at the Game Markets. Most of their games play pretty quickly, and are very cool looking. The components are always TOP notch. If I recall correctly, I was able to email them for the English rules for Yabunonaka. So even if you get the game in English, I think you might be able to get the English rules.

Yabunonaka is a great little deduction game. Plays quickly, but the components look fantastic. It's pocketsized also. In 2010's game market, this was one of the hot games. I think I saw it getting a lot of buzz. Or maybe it was because their stall was humungous

Yabunonaka sounds fantastic. I love deduction games.

I don't suppose anyone would be so kind as to help me buy the game at the Game Market?

I'll pay shipping of course...

Thanks! But I just got a reply from Jun Sasaki from Oink games stating that he can send games to my country

Before I place an order though, does anyone have any more Oink games to recommend?

Those ones are the most popular, and this year they came out with dibdib. I purchased a copy, I took photos, but I have yet to post them up. Actually they have really nice pictures on their website Oink Games - dibdib

Their hottest game is Stamps. If you can get a copy of that I would. It's Modern art, but beautifully packaged, with beautiful stamp tiles. Did I mention it was beautiful?
Oink games comes out with the most elegantly designed games all the time. Just saw their website and it says "sold out" doh!

Yabunonaka was marketed under a different name in the German market.

I just bought a tonne of Japanese games on Sunday, but haven't had a time to open them including DibDib, and read the rules yet. But I'll be doing a video and review when I get the chance. I also got Decathlon and EkiDen two hot new games from Hisashi Hayashi. Plus a tonne of other interesting games. I have a a really cool one.
I did a video Sunday night, but I'll just have to edit it then I'll put it up. Hopefully...maybe by tomorrow night.

Sorry work and wedding planning is keeping me busy and it's now 1:30am hehe.

@Flabbergasted The games play really well. Well designed and well playtested. Most of the Oink games are fillers & Gateway friendly. The games are very social and interactive in nature, and play fast. Definitely worth having, and they're pocket-sized and well-made.

wow, just saw my own thread on the front page... Hope this gives Oink games much greater publicity.

IMO, such beautiful board games deserve to be known by more geeks!

Now someone please add them to the database!
