Overheard this evening at the pizza place: “Do you remember pogs?”.
Well, I remember pogs. I never had any myself, but my sister had a few. I know I bought her the equivalent of an aggie marble, although I forget what they were called. It was green, sparkly plastic with a penny inside. We did collect all of the Apollo 13 Burger King tie-in Saturn V pogholder sections.
This was when I was heavily into CCGs: M:tG, which I never really enjoyed, and the Star Trek and Star Wars CCGs. My sister and I also got a Sim City CCG set, because we were addicted to Sim City 2000.
