Common ‘RFOX Games’ Slammer with Green Border #24

A few days before the sale of 1st Edition KOGs on WAX NFTs, this collectors’ guide went live. But the world had no way of knowing actual figures until after the 3-hour sales window closed forever.

In other words, this series goes deeper into specific KOGs details. And by the time it’s over, we’ll have examined 112 different non-fungible tokens. But instead of making an enormous post that makes you scroll down a squillion times, this series divides the entire collection into 9 distinct sets.

KOGs Starter Packs contain 25 KOGs, and Booster Packs contain 6 — both are (maybe) still selling on AtomicHub. With a total of 6,622 and 6,183 respective packs sold or reserved for giveaways, only 202, 648 1st Edition KOGs NFTs will ever exist.

Now that packs are tearing open — 55% so far — and NFTs are minting to the WAX Blockchain, the secondary market is taking shape.

Amassing 1 of all 3,414 1st Edition KOGs is a challenge for even the most active collectors! How will you even know what piques your interest without a first-hand look?

You're in luck because that’s what this 9-part series is all about …


12 Slammin’ Designs

Whether KOG or Slammer, every NFT in the 1st Edition displays a distinct border color and shape.

But just because you’re a fan of Cerulean Sky, Console gray, Jeweled Earth, Neon, Pineapple, or other border types, that doesn’t necessarily mean your favorite design is available with that border.

Now, if you read into the two charts above, you’ll get an indication of borders you can get, and those that weren’t ever made.

For example, the 1st Slammer is none other than the pseudo-anonymous Satoshi Nakamoto. And since that Slammer falls into the Ultra-Rare category, only the collection’s premium color applications will adorn its borders.

If the differences are still unclear, these images should help …


Ultra-Rare Slammers

The rarest Slammers, and KOGs as well, showcase the series' greatest borders:

Ultra-Rare Border Types

  • Cerulean Sky — black, blue, snow
  • Console Gray — white, black, gray
  • Digital Dawn — black, maroon, gold
  • Jeweled Earth — tan, maroon, black
  • Neon — purple, pink, blue
  • Peach Dreams — gray, black, pink
  • Pineapple — black, yellow, green
  • Royal Orange — black, purple, orange
  • Scorched Earth — black, olive, pumpkin
  • Sirens — black, red, blue
  • Striped Amber — brown, orange, black
  • Sunset — red, pink, purple, blue

The very first piece in the KOGs 1st Edition is a tribute to one of the cryptocurrency industry's most iconic figures ... 

Slammer #1: Satoshi Nakamoto

Without Satoshi’s aim of a freer economic system, collectible NFTs may never have come into existence. Whoever you are, if you’re reading this (highly doubtful!) — thanks for all of your hard work.

Slammer #2: 8 Ball

You can flip this one over all you want, but it’s not magic and won’t answer any of your yes or no questions!

1*cYCKnqgkQmSTYKfBfO6_-w.png

Ultra-Rare ‘8 Ball’ Slammer with 'Pineapple' Border

While the 8 Ball Slammer doesn't have special powers— that we know of yet— it's remarkable easy on the eyes.

Rare Slammers

Now we’ve descended a level on the rareness scale, which means the Slammer's borders are now smooth.

Rare Border Types: #13-18

Rare Border Colors

  • Black
  • Blood Orange
  • Pink
  • White

The first Rare Slammer mimics a very precious metal ...

Slammer #3: Solid Gold

While the Rare ‘Solid Gold’ Slammer features a Yin Yang design, one of the variants — non-foil pink 17 — truly prefers the Yin over Yang. One side of that specific Slammer is entirely blank!

1*xZROe0sauq_Vd41G2V0w2w.png

Rare ‘Solid Gold’ Slammer with Blood Orange Border #18

Use the Solid Gold Slammer to make every match bling'd out!

Standard Variations: 24

Slammer #4: Gun

Bang! The Gun Slammer may seem destructive, but you won’t gain any in-game advantages by putting it into play.

1*bAVEG2IKlXBy7H_ZMukNJg.png

Rare ‘Gun’ Slammer with White Border #15

Nobody's worried about the RFOX logo's durability—the legends say that it's bullet-proof.

Uncommon Slammers

In between Common and Rare lies the Uncommon category. All of these Slammers boast three different border types in five assorted colors:

Uncommon Border Types: #19-21

Uncommon Border Colors

  • Orange
  • Purple
  • Red
  • Teal
  • Yellow

The first Uncommon Slammer is a savage beast ...

Slammer #5: Panda

No set of Slammers is complete unless some wild animals are in the mix. 

1*C66fYFG-DtMvSm8WKSnc5g.png

Uncommon ‘Panda’ Slammer with Teal Border #21

And judging by the human-like outfit, it appears the Panda Slammer likes to play hockey when it’s not slamming tall stacks of KOGs.

Standard Variations: 15
Foil Variations: 15
Total Variations: 30
All Slammer Variations Running Total: 174

Slammer #6: Unicorn

Adding another layer of mystery to the KOGs 1st Edition Slammer collection is the mythical Unicorn. 

1*EsA2LHzX2ag_m1HQW4vyDQ.png

Uncommon ‘Unicorn’ Slammer with Purple Border #19

Where do they live? Can they really fly? Are they responsible for creating rainbows and turning clouds into marshmallow fluff? Your guesses are as good as mine!

Standard Variations: 15
Foil Variations: 15
Total Variations: 30
All Slammer Variations Running Total: 204

Slammer #7: Dollar Sign

The symbol of a KOGs baller, those wielding the Dollar Sign Slammer may be a little too focused on monetary gains. 

1*G5iYG6j9bCHBxOHSiJ9eOQ.png

Uncommon ‘Dollar Sign’ Slammer with Orange Border #20

But for them, taking other players’ KOGs equals a fat deposit into their NFT bank account.

Standard Variations: 15
Foil Variations: 15
Total Variations: 30
All Slammer Variations Running Total: 234

Common Slammers

Don’t let the categorical assignment fool you — Common Slammers are just as effective as their rarer counterparts. But they still have different borders to indicate uniqueness: 

Common Border Types: #22-24

Common Border Colors

  • Blue
  • Green
  • Light Blue
  • Turquoise

First up is an otherworldly apparition ...

Slammer #8: Ghost

This remnant from the age of POGs seeks revenge on those who tried to cheat their way to victory. 

1*sXHItUAqfWZG8IvVFRhKNA.png

Common ‘Ghost’ Slammer with Blue Border #22

Luckily for all of us, blockchain-enabled gameplay is keeping cheaters out of the KOGs ecosystem.

Standard Variations: 12
Foil Variations: 12
Total Variations: 24
All Slammer Variations Running Total: 258

Slammer #9: Ninja

The ultimate shadow assassin, a Ninja Slammer may snatch your opponents’ KOGs without ever revealing itself.

Slammer #10: Pirate Flag

It's ironic how what once was a terrifying global menace is now a family-friendly icon appearing in cartoons.

1*3-rtoIY0HTPVXu37SSo7BQ.png

Common ‘Pirate Flag’ Slammer with Turquoise Border #24

But that won’t stop the Pirate Flag Slammer from striking fear in the heart of your opponents.

1*VEpPrLq9ChNVDmC_rxN1Hg.png

Common ‘WAX’ Slammer with Light Blue Border #22

And the exquisitely detailed WAX Slammer is an excellent keepsake in the 1st Edition KOGs series.

Standard Variations: 12
Foil Variations: 12
Total Variations: 24
All Slammer Variations Running Total: 330

Slammer #12: RFOX Games

The gaming studio responsible for this inaugural set of Slammers is none other than RFOX Games — an offshoot of Southeast Asia’s first blockchain-enabled venture builder, RedFOX Labs.

1*g9rKVSteDKeXPoDbVPcYBg.png

Foil Common ‘RFOX Games’ Slammer with Green Border #23

The organization’s logo befittingly adorns the last piece in the KOGs on WAX 1st Edition Slammers set. And the above photo displays the 1st Edition's signature metallic ‘Foil’ overlay.

Total Variations: 24

Total 1st Edition Slammer Combinations Across All 12 Designs: 354
