Pogs were these little disc things you could collect. It was part of a game you could play, but I mostly just collected them. I used to have a bunch of them, but I think I ended up giving them away to a friend, or trading them for something else. Kind of wish I still had them, as I kind of liked pogs.

I believe so. My sister used to play it, but I just collected them. Had a lot of Nickelodeon themed ones. I think Etsy has a few shops selling a bunch of these. I'm kind of tempted to buy some and build my collection again. Maybe I can make an art piece with them out of resin or something. That'd be cool. :)

Yeah, I think it was something about piling them up and trying to knock the piles down or something. I really don't recall exactly how it works.

This brings back some old memories. Used to do a lot of swaps at school and the occasional cash trade;)

You ever play that game? Was it an actual thing or is my memory just blurry?

They were originally called Milk Caps. The name POG is brand name of a juice made of passion fruit, orange, and guava.

Pogs are also known as SkyCaps, Hero Caps, Flipper Caps, Pog Slammers, Fun Caps, Tazo, Chupa Caps, Coca Cola Caps, Wrestling Caps.

The game was very popular in it's time. A lot of variants were there. One similar was Bubble Gum Cards.

I had a small collection of them. I don't recall what happened to them though. I either gave them to one of my nieces or I lost them somehow.

I'll have to go searching for them I suppose.

I had heard a story of a boy who had limited resources and couldn't gather many in demand pogs. What he dioes is he scratches off front of his pogs to plain white. Nobody else seems to have the white ones and he becomes cool dude.

Whether right/believable or not, the story speaks of innovation, entrepreneurship and out of the box thinking.

When I was a kid I got some for Christmas from a distant relative. I had no clue what they were and what to do with them. They sat in my closet for a few years before my parents tossed them out lol. Oh well.

OMG! I have pogs somewhere at my parents house buried in the basement!

I wonder if they are worth anything...
