With the 99th edition as well, it was a return to The Hall for the first time in our post-Royale celebrations as well! Who would walk home with the Golden VHS? We would have to wait and see!

 Trivia Classic  came to an end with new-comers but game competitors Team Einstein in first place, and with a full five points on The Questionables in second place! Our winningest team at The Rec Room would themselves hold a three point lead on another team of newcomers, We will, we will REC you! who had a one point lead on Cookiefaced! The reigning Trivia Royalty at The Rec Room, our second annual Grand Champs at The Roundhouse, were however nine points off the lead themselves so Cookiefaced would have some ground to make up if they were looking to keep their Championship reign going! Rounding out the Top Five (top five top five) were This couch reminds me of my therapists, that being the newest name for the team also known as Dead on the Inside! Cyber Blockchain were in sixth, and three points behind them were their table mates Team UNCLE! to round out the field.

 Game Show Games  saw the second round begin with Team UNCLE! indeed saying uncle and splintering away before the remaining team member joined Cyber Blockchain! Countdown Takedown eventually settled out with Team Einstein going for the one dollar, Bob, and that gambit paying off for the TOP TEN! Gaining eight points were Cookiefaced, while This couch picked up six, and Cyber Blockchain nabbed four points. We will, we will REC you! were in fact the closest team to the actual Take but they were Taken DOWN for zero points because they were juuuust over. Grabbing the TOP TEN in Survey Says were This couch reminds me of my therapists, with the second guess, after Cookiefaced grabbed eight points with the first try at the Survey! Also gaining two points were We will, we will REC you!
This meant that not only had Dead on the Inside’s couch caught up to the top of the field, he was now only behind Cookiefaced and Team Einstein who had lept to second and stayed in first, respectively!  Tri-Pardo  who shift things in the third round however, as The Questionables rolled for twelve points on the first question, This couch reminds me of my therapists rolled for fourteen points, and Cyber Blockchain added another eleven points, to make it a thirty-seven point third round! Hitting for the triple were Cookiefaced, The Questionables, and We will, we will REC you! Team Einstein gained eleven points on the third question, but had slipped to fourth behind The Questionables, who were now one points ahead of REC you! in second place heading into the Finale, and in first… Cookiefaced, after an impressive second and third rounds!

In the  Trivia Finale , wagering was all-in for We will REC you! and Cyber Blockchain, while Cookiefaced left one point behind, and The Questionables chose not to wager four points! Team Einstein hedged their bets and wagered twenty-seven points, and finally This couch reminds me of my therapists decided not to wager any points! It proved an attainable question however… with no team being at a loss for points after the Finale!

This meant that ending the night in third were The Questionables, two points behind runners-up We will, we will REC you! thanks to the newcomers going all-in on the last question! Finishing the night with one-hundred and seventy-one points… and winning their TENTH GOLDEN VHS… COOKIEFACED with the repeat Championship! The 171 points on the night is also the fifth highest score in the history of Trivia Club at The Rec Room Roundhouse! Not a bad start to a new month on the final double-digit event at Toronto Rec Room location!
