After a week away, Trivia Club returned to The Rec Room Roundhouse to February with a wonderfully unpredictable combination of newcomers, regulars, and returning faces! Amongst all of these teams was the duo of Cookiefaced looking to make it a fourpeat! They would have an uphill battle in the Three10 upper-space, however, as the field had come to compete!

 Trivia Classic  came to an end with M. Night Shaym-Aliens returning for only the second-time since their August 2019 victory, their last one victory here at The Rec Room! It was also the first appearance at Trivia Club for Dylan, who was nursing a busted wing but was wonderful to have out! Just half a point behind the Shaym-Aliens were Cookiefaced however, and our reigning threepeat Champs weren’t just going to stop at winning some sweet prizes to end round one! In third place were The Questionables, one point behind Cookiefaced and looking to regain some Championship shine of their own! In fourth place was They’re #2, followed by Aneta’s Boys & Girls! In sixth were The Feisty Foreigners, just a point back from that Top Five (top five top five), and one point ahead of fellow newcomers Fajitas! Rounding out the field were Magnificent B, followed by (Pauline)!

 Game Show Games  were then written down as we lost teams to the games floor, in and amongst the spread out restaurant space! This meant that Countdown Takedown guesses were blind, but it was a nearly on the nose guess by Cookiefaced that got the team the TOP TEN, followed by eight points for Fajitas! Then in Survey Says, both Cookiefaced and the M. Night Shaym-Aliens grabbed eight points of their own, with Fajitas gaining six points, The Feisty Foreigners four points, and The Questionables guessing correctly for two points!

 Tri-Pardo  guesses meant that, unknown to them at the time, Cookiefaced had gained the lead, with Fajitas not far behind the M. Night Shaym-Aliens, and in fact now in front of The Questionables! Cookiefaced got the first choice at a category and rolled for five points, while The Feisty Foreigners rolled for six points on category number two, and Fajitas rolled for nineteen points on the third category! This meant that thirty points were up for grabs, with the balance of those points tipped towards the third question! Losing nineteen points a piece? The Feisty Foreigners, and taking a big hit to their re-re-re-repeat momentum, Cookiefaced! With a correct answer in the first and third questions for twenty-four points were The Questionables, while Fajitas also gained twenty-four points but lost six on the second question to become tied with The Questionables! Hitting for the triple and strengthening their lead on the field were the M. Night Shaym-Aliens, keeping thirteen and a half point ahead of the two teams in second before the Finale!

 Trivia Finale  wagering some every team go all-in, and in the case of The Feisty Foreigners and Cookiefaced, go more then all-in! Luckily it worked out for them, but in fact… it worked out for everyone! That meant that the win streak for Cookiefaced ended at a milestone threepeat with their fourth place finish! Runners-up on the night were two teams tied for second, both with 90 points a piece… The Questionables and Fajitas!

With 117 points, winning their FOURTH GOLDEN VHS at The Rec Room… and THIRTY-SEVENTH ALL-TIME… the M. NIGHT SHAYM-ALIENS! With a team that consisted of the O.G. Shaym-Alien boys, including a returning Dylan, the Shaym-Aliens showed why they've been known as Trivia Club’s house team, a team at home at any Trivia Club location!

Congrats to the Shaym-Aliens once more, and thank you to everyone who came out to compete at The Rec Room Roundhouse!
