YT_squareOn 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.

This month, our guests are:

  • Theatre critic, arts writer and raconteur, Richard Watts (RRR’s SmartsArts, ArtsHub)
  • Comedian and ventriloquist, Sarah Jones (Jonestown, Melbourne Magic Festival)
  • Broadcaster, writer, media maker and festival director, Marcus Westbury (Bespoke, ABCTV)

Hosted by Ben McKenzie (Dungeon Crawl, Night Terrace) with pedant James Tresise.

Finally, it’s Your Turn!
