The original pogs were like cardboard milkcaps, but it wasn’t long before you could find a pog for everything. There were even ways to have your picture put on a pog. They were collected, traded, and played for like modern-day marbles. Opponents stacked their pogs and the other player would use a “slammer” to knock pogs off the stack and win whatever fell. Like most fun things, pogs were soon banned from schools as administrators likened the game to gambling.
