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, even your balance and co-ordination 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.

For our December show, to finish off the year, our guests are:

  • Improvisor, actor and comedian, Amanda Buckley (Yourovision, Hungry Beast, The Gruen Transfer)
  • Writer and public speaker Kate Iselin (The Guardian, Daily Life, Thirty Dates of Tinder)
  • Writer and broadcaster John Richards (Night Terrace, BoxcuttersOutland)
  • Actor (and previous contestant) Kasia Kaczmarek (Wentworth Prison, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, The Doctor Blake Mysteries)

Hosted by our own Games Master, Ben McKenzie, with pedant James Tresise!

Finally – and this month, we do mean finally – it’s Your Turn!
