About The Recess Room

One fateful day three decades ago, five boys picked up a game of handball during school recess on a Fountain Valley playground. They grew up together, became life-long friends and pursued their own ambitions. But they shared a deep love for their hometown and dreamed of one day opening a restaurant together where they could share good food, good drinks and reminisce about good times. The Recess Room is their childhood dream come to life.

New year, new you, new players! I missed you guys after a long two weeks off, and it was great seeing some Tournament of Champions finalists coming in to get some practice in!

Tonight's teams were challenged a bit more than usual, as both Area 51 and Return of the Home King were bested by the Empire State Building and sci-fi movies, while The Implication didn't get any chances to risk a double down all evening.

The showdown came between Daddy Down and Pweggle, who took turns in the lead all night [no thanks to your Quizmaster and her embarrassingly horrid math skills]. Pweggle was so close to the 1st place title, but they forgot to turn their pen in for one extra bonus point at the end of the game, so a tiebreaker question determined the fates of these two teams. Daddy Down had the closest guess as to how much the Cowardly Lion's costume auctioned off for ($86,000), and they got to take home $40 in Recess Room gift cards. Pweggle didn't lose all their pride -- they still got to take home $20 in gift cards. The Implication didn't do so bad themselves -- they took home a $10 gift card AND a free appetizer for being the first team to figure out the Empire State Building was tonight's Guess Where?.
