A chicken named Fafnir lays 2 gems each day, but at times can lay more. The brothers that inherited Fafnir have decided that ‘The person that throws away more of their gems’ can receive the freshly laid gems. The value of the gems fluctuate depending on how many the players are holding and by purposefully throwing gems away you can manipulate the playing field. In this simple strategy game, the goal is to make it to the end holding as many valuable gems as you can.

Fafnir comes from the game designer Jun Sasaki, highly acclaimed both in Japan and overseas. Jun Sasaki is the designer of games such as ‘Deep Sea Adventure’, ‘A Fake Artist Goes to New York’, ‘In a Grove’, and ‘Startups’.

*this is the EN version of the Fafnir board game.

  • Nine Tiles Panic Board Game

    Think Faster!

    Race to create your town to the best of your ability as the conditions keep changing. Just completing the town is easy enough, but quickly satisfying all the conditions is enough to make your brain go crazy. From kids to adults, Nine Tiles Panic is a speedy and exciting puzzle game for everyone!

    The Nine Tiles Panic board game is the follow-on game of the game ‘Nine Tiles’, an Oink Game that is only available in Japan. Both games are created by the same authors. ‘Nine Tiles’ also is a speedy puzzle game, but the new ‘Nine Tiles Panic’ adds decision making and tactics to the game, so that you can experience a totally new kind of fun game play.

    Each player gets one of these tile sets, which consists of nine different tiles. The fronts and backs of the tiles show different road parts of your city. While playing you can flip and turn the tiles as you like. The only important things are that you create a city which is exactly 3×3 tiles big and that you connect the roads. Completing such a city is rather easy…

    But these condition cards make everything a little more difficult. In each round you draw three condition cards randomly and in the end everyone gets points according to how well you satisfied the conditions. The points you will get, depend on the order of successfully satisfied condition cards. You can choose if you want to use the full capacity of your brain and fulfil all three conditions or if you want to focus on one of them and be the first player to fulfil it. It might me a good idea to focus on a condition nobody might me interested in. Amongst the condition cards you will find really difficult ones as well!
    Be careful! It can be dangerous to think about a solution too long! The first player that finishes their city can turn the hour glass and from that point on everyone has only 90 seconds left to finish theirs. Players who can’t finish their city in that time, won’t get any points! If two or more players get the same amount of points for one condition card, the player who was quicker wins. This is why it is very important to be as quick as possible. You can definitely try to fully use the 90 seconds for completing a task perfectly as well… this is where opinions differ.

  • Troika Board Game

    A planet full of gems – and anxiety?!

    In a not so distant future, scientists find very special stones on another planet. If you collect three matching stones, you can turn them into an extremely valuable gem or into fuel. After hearing about the stones, you decide to travel to this new planet to become rich. You arrive safely, but after having some troubles on the way, your spacecraft is now out of fuel. What a dilemma! You want to make valuable gems, but you also need fuel to get back to Earth. You’re also not the only person with this idea. Can you collect more gems than the others and still escape from the planet?

    In the Troika board game, you have to turn the face-down tiles lying on the table one by one. When it’s your turn, you also have to collect one of the tiles, no matter if face-up or face-down. That’s all you need to do in this game.

    The game ends when all tiles are turned face-up and until then you have to try to collect as many trios of consecutive numbers as possible. You also need to collect a trio of the same number, a so-called ‘fuel-set’, or you won’t be able to go back to Earth again…

    As the number of tiles you can collect hidden is restricted and since there are many more No.7-tiles than tiles with other numbers, the game becomes very exciting! Never forget to watch your opponents, never stop thinking about the possible combinations of numbers and try not to lose your head in this game! It is very entertaining and short and the special design of the game components makes it even more fun to play!

    *note this is the EN version of the game.
