Default Remember POGS?

A friend and I were talking, and something brought up POGS! Those were like the hippest things around when I was younger. Anyone my age will remember elementary school with POGS I'm sure. Who remembers them? I remember playing for money, it was like our little ring of illegal playground gambling at the time. Funny stuff...

Here's a >> LINK << for those who think I'm crazy & have no idea what a POG is

I used to have two shoeboxes full of them (in fact, I used to have a sawblade one just like the one in the picture).

Don't remember what happened to my collection, but I don't have them anymore.

Talking POG

Interesting. When I saw the word POG, the first thing that came to mind was that refreshing Hawaiian drink made of Passionfruit, orange juice and guava. The game's name is based on that drink according to Wikipedia.

Planning on making a digital POG game for the DI peeps, translucent?

Oh wow major nostalgia. I gave away all my pogs when the fad faded out. I had some sick looking slammers too.

Hmmm... a digital POGS game? That probably would have less appeal than online volley ball, and twice as hard to program!

Cool Tazos

Here in Australia we call(ed) them "tazos", and EVERYONE collected them! Probably still collect them today. My favourite set was always the Looney Tunes ones.

tazos were a competitor to pogs brought out years after the original pog craze. the cool thing about tazos was they gave 'em away free in loads of crisp packets...

Ooh yeah i remember those...they were called flippo's here
Had thousands of em...had every single one of all the Looney Tunes and Chester Cheetos series, including the really rare ones (except the golden one :cheeky). I think those series together were about 1500 different ones, but i had many doubles

omg POGS.... lmao. I used to have sooo many of them and I loved it. I had the sickest looking slammers ever... and the slammers were probably the best part about it. Like everyone else, I dont know what happened to my set of POGS either. I miss those days.

HOLY FREAK!! I totaly forgot about those things. I haven't seen one in 10 years. I've always known them as milkcaps. I never knew what they were for other than collecting. I remember getting them with fast food kids meals.

Someone should throw loads into an outdoor swimming pool on a sunny day and take a photo from underwater looking up.
