Recess Board Game


Product Description

  • Growing up is never easy ..

  • Recess! A board game of pain and loss in a rough parochial school ..
  • The fact that you've bet the last of your lunch money on being the first do it makes it all the more risky
  • Of course, might makes right here on the playground
  • Between bullies stealing your lunch money, fights breaking out left and right, and schoolmates tattling to the ever-present nuns, a kid just can't catch a break ..
  • or a kiss, as the case may be
  • Players each start with two boy figures and two girl figures on opposite sides of the grid-marked modular board, which is dotted with playground-themed obstacles
  • Other children can break up a fight by landing on that same space, or tattle by landing on a nun's space
  • Finishing thirty of the minute-long turns marks the end of the game, or it ends immediately when one player's boy and girl figures meet on the same space while out of sight of the nuns
  • Because you're a lover as well as a fighter, and all you really want is to steal a kiss from your sweetheart across the blacktop before the school bell rings and recess is over
  • A child that lands on a space occupied by another child starts a fight and takes a coin from him
  • Children move like a rook in chess, while nuns move like a queen
  • If a nun moves onto the fight space, the attacker is sent back to the entrance for detention
  • If you can't win your money back from the other kids, you can always beat it out of them

  • Recess is a strategy board game for three to five players
  • The resulting kiss earns two coins from each player, but to win you still have to end up with the most coins
  • especially in a rough parochial school where scores are settled on the playground
