KOGs are Keys to Other Games — collectible, playable, tradable NFTs (non-fungible tokens). KOGs act as in-game currency, unlock tournaments and skins, and provide VIP access to special events and virtual metaverses.
There are different elements of KOGs that differentiate each KOG and determine their value and utility. This guide will help you learn about the most common details - object type, rarity, design, border, foil, and edition.
While our NFTs are called KOGs in general, there are 2 object types available - the normal KOGs and slammers.
The normal KOGs, or simply KOGs, are the plain round KOGs. In KOGs: SLAM!, these are the ones that are stacked in the middle of the screen that you flip.
The slammers are round discs with a silver or gold outermost border. These are the ones you use to slam in KOGs: SLAM! to flip the stack.
Rarity plays a significant role in the utilities we have for KOGs. KOGs and slammers come in 4 different rarities.
The border's thickness indicates the rarity of the KOGs and slammers - the thicker the border, the rarer the KOG is.
The design is the most distinct part of a KOG. It's what you see first in a KOG. Kinda hard to miss, right?
Borders and border colors are important in collecting sets for staking.
Supersets are a collection of KOGs with different designs on one border. Here is an example of a Superset.
On the other hand, Rainbow Sets are made up of KOGs with the same design in all possible borders. Look at this example.
Every KOG has a special, truly rare counterpart - the Foil variant. Foils have basically all the same elements of regular KOGs, except that they have a certain "glow" in them. Check out these side by side comparisons.

Aside from the KOGs NFTs that we released in our website and partner marketplaces, there are also KOGs NFTs that you can get only through the game KOGs: SLAM!
SLAM! KOGs can be bought from the in-game Shop and are also given as rewards in the Arena game mode.
For SLAM! Season 1, we have 50 KOGs designs (no slammers).
Another type of KOGs that can only be acquired in KOGs: SLAM! is the Arena KOGs. These are rarer than SLAM! KOGs because you can't buy them in the Shop - you can only get them as prizes from the Arena game mode.
There are 17 KOGs designs and 3 slammer designs for Arena KOGs.
