PAX EAST 2013: The only place where you can watch someone take 15 minutes to make a single move in Jenga. ]

Two teams of two, compete tonight in front of a crowd, while Gabe and Tycho make very sexualized jokes about the game of Giant Jenga being played. This is the Omegathon semi finals, and it is more for our amusement than that of the contestants. The Jenga tower is huge, half the height of the people playing, with oversized wooden blocks. If ever there was a metaphor for eSports, this is it. It’s not about the game, only that two sides are facing off, while commentators make it entertaining.
