High Score Challenge
High Score ChallengeIndividual competition: One team member who has not participated in another individual challenge. Rules: The goal is to flip as many pogs in the stack in five Slams. Pogs flipped are counted and then replaced in the stack. After 5 Slams, the flipped pogs are added up for a final score. Teams will receive 1 point for every 5 pogs flipped (no rounding). A full stack flip receives 2 bonus points. The stack will consist of 15 pogs (as opposed to a standard 24 pog stack). The Judge’s decision is final in all regards.

- Each team gets five Slams.

Speed PogsIndividual competition: One team member who has not participated in another individual challenge. Rules: Team take turns in a timed event. The goal is to flip all the pogs in the stack as fast as possible. There is an unlimited number of tries during the attempt. After 5 minutes, if all Pogs have not been flipped, the Team will be registered as did not finish (DNF). Time begins when the player releases their first slam and ends when the last pog is flipped or when 5 minutes have passed. The Judge’s decision is final in all regards.
Tag Team Takedown
Tag Team TakedownTwo-team members from each team. Rules: A standard game of pogs but played in a Scotch Doubles format where teams take turns, and players on each team take turns in an 1A, 2A, 1B, 2B round. Each turn a player has one slam to flip pogs over. When pogs are flipped, they are removed and count as points for that team. The team who reaches 12 or more pogs flipped first wins the round. Each team will have 2 spin tokens. By playing these tokens they can spin the Pogtagon on the opposing team’s Slam. If the Pogtagon is spun, the Slam must take place before it stops spinning. Judge’s decision is final in all regards.
Teams may consist of one to five players. Some events require all team members participate. Some events are individual events and teams may choose a representative for each. Players can only participate in one individual event along with all team events.
Players and teams will score points for each event they participate in. Prizes will be awarded for highest team total, highest individual total, most full stack flips, and more…
