Loblaws, Funrise prepare Pog promotion
Grocery store chain Loblaws and toy maker Funrise will hold a national series of events to promote the relaunch of the game Pog. The game involves collectable discs which are placed in stacks and then struck in an attempt to flip the pieces over. The two companies will conduct 133 simultaneous Pog tournaments at Loblaws and affiliated stores nationally on April 8. Pog game materials will be sold exclusively at Loblaws stores in Canada. A website to promote the game has also been constructed at <http://www.officialpog.com>.
