I got into this fad late, so I only had about two weeks of it while most of my classmates had about four. Managed to come out ahead, though.

Still have my shoebox full of them.

Bought the POG: The Game for a dollar at the local Salvation Army a few months back. It came with several sheets of original pogs with the staples in them, and a bunch of slammers that the previous owner must have collected.

For my birthday, I'm promised that I can host a POG tournament to decide the 2012 Official POG World Champion.

My brother and I got into a fight over a pog game once. I broke his board with my slammer.

In the toy aisle at the Walgreens where I work they sell these things now called Roxx, I think they're like Pogs except they're plastic!

I have an entire unused tube of these with a slammer in my closet still. My school banned pogs as a form of gambling the day after I bought them.

My school banned them because it was seriously fucking up the linoleum floor in the hallways. It was the first year of operation for the school.

"Pogs is a game that was popularized during the early 1990s. The game is played using discs which are also called "pogs". The name originates from POG, a brand of juice made from passionfruit, orange and guava; the use of the POG bottle caps to play the game pre-dated the game's commercialization.[1] The game of pogs possibly originated in Hawaii (Maui, Hawaii) in the 1920s or 1930s,[2][3] or possibly with origins in a game from much earlier: Menko, a Japanese card game very similar to pogs, has been in existence since the 17th century.[4] Pogs returned to popularity when the World POG Federation and the Canada Games Company reintroduced them to the public in the 1990s. The pog fad soared, and peaked in the mid 1990s before rapidly fading out."

Fascinating.

I seem to remember these things came and went within a single year. I still have a drawer full of them.

I remember this commercial. I remember not understanding what POGs were and trying really hard to figure out the rules of the game from that brief couple seconds of gameplay. I remember seeing the Alf POGs in that Simpson's episode. I remember wondering who Alf was and what POGs were.

Five stars.

I remember when these were the big thing, AMD everyone either wanted them, or had them and wanted more. I remember people at school would bring yard long plastic tubes of these things to school as if to impress someone, and oddly enough, everyone was in fact, impressed.

But yet, I never remember meeting anyone who actually knew how to play the game. People collected ans traded them but no one where I went to school actually played with thek.

Oh, to grow up in Torrance, CA in the 90s.

I had a really badass yard long one that was made to look like a Saturn V rocket. The stages could be unscrewed and it could be reduced in size if needed. It was so bad.

still has his collectable Spawn Spogz. Fuck you, Todd McFarlane.

This appears to be a dupe, actually:

Not entirely. Visually it's the same commercial but it has a different soundtrack.

I was already playing D&D at this point in my life, I couldn't understand POGs.

I think I remember you in grade school.

Fat, fedora, quoting Monty Python, you got it.

I still have all the ones that came with renewals of my Nintendo Power magazine... including a few Virtual Boy ones. OMG SO MUCH 90S

Virtual Boy Pogs , wow. Put 'em on ebay and see what you get.

It's the mystery of POGS that compels us to buy.
