Pogs!

I'll be posting some good old fashioned nostalgia up in hurrrrr. Hope you all enjoy.


Today's item of nostalgia: POGS!



Hot damn son, if you grew up in America in the 90's, you remember these suckas.  Pogs were a fad popular in the mid-90's amongst young school kids.  They look bad*ss, right? You want to know how to play, right?  Let me explain this shi* to you squares in the house tonight.



How to play:
-You take a larger heavier disk, called a Slammer, and you slam it onto a stack of lighter, thinner disks (the pogs).  Whichever one lands face up, you get to keep.  Then your opponent gets his turn, and you continue back and forth till all the pogs are gone.

 Some Hardcore Slammers

 And...That's it!  Simple right?  Now that you know the basics, grab your best slammer and finest collection of pogs and meet me in the school parking lot in 15.  We 'bout to get down, and don't go cryin' to your mama cuz we playin' for keeps!

  2. Pfeh, heh. My brother was always telling me "We should get back into pogs for the hell of it". Dude, post some old commercials that were shown on Nick, or like prizes won from Legends of The Hidden Temple, or Figure It Out. There's plenty of nostalgiagasms in those.

  13. HNNNNNNNNG I lost. Well, actually I never played pogs- I was born too late (crazy bones were my thing)- but my brother played pogs all the time, I remember they seemed cool, but now it's like... wat...

    Anyway, yeah, my blog I actually set it up as a real blog for school XD I'm just afraid I'm not going to be posting often enough for them, even though I'm just only going to be posting as often as my teacher asks me too... Making a bit of $ on the side too seemed like a nice idea =P

  22. fuck. I lost hard. I had approximately a metric shit ton of these and then one day when I was at school my psycho grandma gathered em up along with my legos and sold em all. for $10. She thought I never played with them so it would be ok. and I didn't even get any of the money.
    couple days later I sold her dog for 20 bucks and kept the money.
