Pogs
    #4234597 - 05/29/05 11:00 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Yes, Pogs. What happened to them? I used to play pogs in elementary school and it was the shit.

Let me tell you, I won so many pogs when we played for keeps that it wasn't even funny. I didn't just go out and buy a 6 foot tube and all the pogs to fill it. I started small, with a handfull of them and kept those bastards in my pocket. Then I remember I made one myself with a picture of Barry Sanders on it (football player for the Lions that lived down the street from a friend) and used it in a "keeps" game against this kid I didn't like. When I won a bunch of his pogs he cried like a baby because I was using a homemade pog. That little shit didn't get any of his pogs back.

So I just poked around ebay and got a good deal on a bunch of pogs and some slammers. HELL YES!

Yeah. I was sitting here just chilling, listening to some music, and all of a sudden I get a bunch of images of pogs flashing through my head.

Pogs lasted from the early to mid 1990s. Sorry, but the fad is dead, replaced by new shitty Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan fads.

Actually, I'm sure there are more widespread fads than that right now, but I don't watch MTV or care enough about mainstream culture to remember them.

Psh, fad....

I love pogs. Who cares if the "fad" is dead? I enjoy throwing a heavy chunk of metal down onto a stack of circular pieces of cardboard and cheering joyously as the stack is slowly and methodically destroyed.

I used to play pogs in elementary school too. Kids started playing for keeps and fights started so my school banned pogs. Same with Pokemon cards in middle school. Kids started playing with Pokemon cards and fights started so my school banned Pokemon cards.

Haha! Kinda like playing Bullshit with only two people, eh?

Skunk, pogs are:



Round pieces of cardboard that have pictures on them. You and your opponent each have a stack. You use a slammer, a heavier metal thingy, and slam it onto your opponents stack, trying to knock some off.

They're gay token sized pieces of plastic people used to trade. They suck compared to the great intrinsic value of Marvel cards.

The best slammers had greater height, less circumference.

You always play for keeps. There were some really sweet pogs that you cherished. Every kind of pog you could imagine.
