The game of milk caps originated in Hawai’i and became a worldwide phenomenon in the 1990s. It is loosely based off the Japanese card game Menko, and was originally played with actual cardboard caps from milk bottles, many labeled “Haleakala Dairy” or “POG” (Passion Orange Guava). To play, each player contributes the same number of caps from their collection, and they are mixed and stacked. Players take turns using the slammer to hit the top of the stack, winning any milk caps that are flipped over. Play "for keeps," for fun, or just to admire the artwork!
