    Microsoft "Kids of the '90s" ad



    Not sure why they went this route... brought back the feels, but kinda of made me angry, that they're just using my sweet, sweet childhood memories to make me want their tablet.

    I could google this, but I will ask instead: did Pogs actually have rules?? I remember bashing them around, but don't recall an actual reason for doing so. Oh, and Oregon Trail was the stuff.

    As far as I know you just threw the slammer and you kept whatever pogs were face up.

    We always took about 20 each, mixed them together, and put them upside down in one stack. Then you took turns with your slammer hitting the pile. The ones you turned over you got to keep. It was the cause of a lot of elementary school drama and eventually a pog ban at school.

    This is great info. I vaguely remember doing this now and the ensuing ban in the lunch-room at my school as well. Oh man fifth grade was intense.
