  • (retro music)

  • - [Voiceover] Pogs.

  • You probably remember this prolific 90s fad,

  • but what you may not know is that

  • Pogs have roots that go

  • all the way back to 17th century Japan.

  • (retro music)

  • Okay, first thing's first.

  • Let's review the rules.

  • To play, you start with a stack of Pogs,

  • all face down.

  • Player one takes a slammer and throw it down onto the pile

  • and keeps any and all Pogs that land face up.

  • Pogs that remain face down are re-stacked,

  • and the game continues on.

  • The player with the most pogs at the end of the game, wins.

  • Hooray!

  • The origins of Pogs can be traced back to this,

  • Menko, a classic Japanese game.

  • Players threw cards at their opponents' cards

  • with the goal of flipping them over.

  • In the early 1900s, Japanese immigrants settled in Hawaii

  • and brought the game with them.

  • Over time, it evolved into a version played with

  • milk and juice caps from a local dairy company in Maui,

  • eventually renaming it Pogs after their juice

  • that was made out of passion fruit, orange, and guava.

  • Get it?

  • In 1991, this woman, a sixth grade teacher

  • named Blossom Galbiso,

  • introduced the game to her class.

  • Her goal was to teach them math,

  • but in a fun way, and it worked big time.

  • Kids loved it, and the game exploded in popularity

  • throughout Hawaii and then spread to the mainland.

  • As the game took off,

  • this marketing guy, Alan Rypinski, took note.

  • He purchased the trademark for Pogs,

  • founded the World Pog Federation,

  • and got them into every store in America.

  • Oom ma mow mow, Papa oom mow mow

  • And subsequently, into nearly every home with a 90s kid.

  • - [Voiceover] Pogs.

  • - [Voiceover] Thanks, Alan.
