It was vicious, it was ridiculous, it was GIANT, it was Jenga and it was.... televised!
The first Time Out Giant Jenga Tournament of Death turned out to be everything it promised to be with participants and spectators alike alarmingly transfixed by adults playing a giant balancing game involving wooden blocks (say WHAT?)
The first rounds easily knocked out the weaker players with 'The Big Show' and 'Calamity Jenga' being the first victims despite their strengths in sledging and wit. It wasn't long before and epic battle between 'Trickster' and 'Boy George' not only held the breath of the accompanied support teams but also the rather large group of people who had gathered outside St Kilda bar 29th Apartment not quite sure what was happening, but like unable to look away anyway.
The competitive nature of the, errr, 'sport' was such that Channel Ten sent a production crew down to cover it, turning our humble competitors potentially into the sports stars of the future.
With cider in hand the players continued to battle with wit and steady hand. There was a hush as crowd favourite ' Captain Fatty Handsome' was knocked out from competing in the final by the eventual champion (who swiftly defeated ' Sheep Lover' in the last game) - Boy George.
