Recess was a... unicorn signing... dinosaur dancing... red panda high fiving... MEGA SUCCESS!!!
Thanks so much to Pillar, Jimb, badasswitch, and evilyn for organizing Recess!
Major shout out to Tekatana, mumblethrax, and BaronHelix for helping us run Recess! And Dragonbear82 for acquiring the gift certificates we gave away to people waiting at the back of the game signup lines.

Without you... there would be no Recess!
Thanks to 440 Studios for hosting Recess. I'd say that we made major improvements over last Recess but there were areas that we identified that needed improvement. Many out of our control and almost all minor but the Recess staff will meet in the near future to brainstorm how to make next Recess even better. People played games. People made friends. That's what NerdNYC is about... so I would say mission accomplished!
And finally I would love to thank all of you who attended, brought your enthusiasm and kick ass attitudes to Recess! In total we were 180 people strong! A new record! 150 people Saturday and 121 Sunday. Even more amazing we had 40+ new people to NerdNYC and many more new to Recess. Most of the new people heard about Recess from friends… so thank you for spreading the fun! It’s very much appreciated. We want to do it again soon!
