On the third THURSDAY of each month, Pop Up Playground invites some of the brightest minds in Melbourne to compete in a battle of wits, smarts and silliness – and you’re playing as well!

Test your general knowledge, lateral thinking, communication skills, balance and coordination against the biggest brains we can find in challenges inspired by board games, classic party games and the imaginations of Pop Up Playground’s game designers.

Guests for October 15 include:

* Astrophysicist and science communicator, KATIE MACK!
* Sparkle-puppy comedian, Lisa-Skye​

Hosted by Benjamin McKenzie with Pedant James Tresise

Finally, it’s Your Turn!
