(yes, I was a PogoBall....Master)  hahaha

 

Lots of bumps and bruises and scrapes with these I'm sure.  Though I don't remember any of them catching fire....

What were my parents thinking allowing me to waste money on this crap?

Well the internet wasn't a big thing back then. If you were into BBS's then it was most likely ALL over them. People talking about how they bounced or spun and it caught on fire.

The USPS now restricts shipping these to ground transportation:

.

Path.

You are standing on a path that leads off a road to the north, to a cottage south of you.  To the west and east are separate gardens.

 

GO WEST

 

Flower garden.

You are in a well-kept garden.  There is an unexpectedly sweet smell here, and you notice lots of flowers.  To the east across a path there is more garden.

 

GO WEST

 

Goblin.

An ugly goblin releases his bowstring, firing an arrow at you.

The arrow fails to pierce your armor.

 

DEPLOY SCOOTER

 

You deploy your self-balancing two-wheel scooter.

 

The ugly goblin releases his bowstring, firing an arrow at you.

The arrow strikes your self-balancing two-wheel scooter.  Your self-balancing two-wheel scooter erupts in flame.  The Goblin attacks you as you are distracted by the fire and rips your arms from your body before severing your head from your body.  If you'd not stopped to smell the flowers, perhaps you would still be alive.

Persona updated.

Would you like to play again?
