Jack in a box (as they call it in Austin, Texas) is a game that consists of locking someone inside a confined space (such as a fridge), who then has to wait a certain amount of time (a couple of minutes to even one hour), step to a stepwise Earth, move away from the confined space and take a step back.[1]

Is is during such a game that young Jared Orgill found out he was a natural stepper.
