I think it’s safe to say at least 90% of 90s kids were owners of pogs and slammers. Even the kids who didn’t play Pogs collected them for the hell of it. There were the mediocre performers who were hesitant to play and then there were the certified assassins who would boldly challenge you for keeps and typically exit with a good chunk of your collection in hand. The casual players like me were the best because we just played for the love of the game. If you were smart you’d only play your legit WWF or Power Rangers pogs in “just for fun” games – without the risk of losing them permanently. Then you’d recklessly play for keeps with the American Wildlife Association Pog collection that Grandma gave you for Christmas. Sorry, but I wasn’t willing to put my favorite pogs at stake against a generation that had so many efficient, skilled players around. Unfortunately this game really died down and I have yet to see anybody play it in the 2000s. Maybe we should start a revolution and get the current youth to give pogs and slammers a chance. Good luck convincing them that it’s more fun than their Xbox 360 though.
