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.

Tonight's questions were fun, but definitely challenging. Some answers and a few scores surprised us all! Our top winners had to double their points at least once during the game and not have any double-down mishaps in between.

Highway Stars came super close to a few double-down opportunities, but no cigar. Area 51, who shows up though Tuesdays have proven to be their most challenging nights (thanks for coming to see me anyway! <3), took the risk in Round 5, but was horribly betrayed by Muhammad Ali. And while Home Team figured out all members of the Fellowship with no trouble at all, he was let down by his lack of Richard Branson knowledge.

A couple teams actually could have stood to have me on their team for Round 7, since it was one of the easiest "Lord of the Rings" questions we could have given. And most of you agreed! Home Team, Area 51, nearly impenetrable herd The Implication, and super smarty pants Fat Tire Tuesday all doubled down on their Tolkien characters with confidence, making me one heckuva proud Quizmaster.

Thirsty Pretzels held a brief lead for knowing most of their Film NOLA movies, but their eventual fall to third place wasn't the worst way to end the night. They still scored a free dessert for being the first team to figure out Branson was our Guess Who? dude of the night. (I was only a little sad they didn't share.)
