    I was just talking about the 90's with a friend and POGs came up. Anyone remember/still have these? What a terrible fad.

    LOL at that OJ Pog.

    I remember Roy Rogers (the restaurant chain) had a promotion of Apollo 13 Pogs in 1995...The Apollo 13 Slammer they had = [​IMG]

    I've since lost and misplaced all those Pogs, including that aforementioned Slammer. [​IMG]

    Pogs were hella fun! It was just a game like jenga or pokemon cards, something to pass the time. In middle school I couldnt think of anything else more fun,i'd rather get together with some friends and play pogs than sit at home alone and play sega or something.

    People grew out of the game, just like they grew out of comics and things. That was during the transitional stage from physical entertainment to digitalentertainment like all the kids are into now.

    Pogs were dope. Wasn't it that you take a stack and slam the slammer/metal on top and whichever turns over you get to keep? Haha good times

    One of the worst fad's I got into when I was younger...whoever brought Pog's back during the 90's was definitely cakin' from it.

    Then there was that whole Yo-Yo thing in the late 90's...luckily I never got into that.
