Screw Planking, Let’s Go Edging!


By now I’m sure you know all about the planking fad sweeping the globe. You know, when people with way too much time on their hands attempt to outdo other people with too much time on their hands by laying down face first, stiff as a wooden plank, in unusual places.

But planking is so old news. The new game that’s about to catch on (or maybe not) is edging!

To promote tomorrow’s Steam launch of PC puzzle platformer EDGE, Two Tribes is hosting an edging contest. Similar to planking, edging involves finding an edge, be it a rock, a fence, a building ledge or perhaps something more interesting, and hanging from it. That’s it. Watch the video at the bottom of the page if you’re struggling to comprehend such complex rules.

For the contest, Two Tribes want you to record yourself creatively edging and share the video link in the comments on this page by Monday, August 15th (I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if you tweeted or Facebooked it at them either). The winning edger will have his or her name immortalized in the game, in addition to bagging a sweet game pack including EDGE, Swords & Soldiers, RUSH, Toki Tori, Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Perfect Cell, Cross Fingers and Truckers Delight.

If you record an edging video for the contest, feel free to drop the link off in the comments here as well. We’d love to see what edging shenanigans you get yourself into. Now get off your lazy butt and go edge!
