Quiz 99 saw RIP Mandella – You Were Great In The Shawshank Redemption (Idiots) just pip Heroes & Zeroes in the very last round. The winners drew more beers so that means there is a big rollover of £158 for our Christmas Special.
The Christmas Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Festive Picture Round (the clue this week is "Regular Quizzers could have a distinct advantage... if they have a photographic memory for faces!") then four themed rounds of Festive General Knowledge, Christmas Hits, Yuletide Songs* and Seasonal Film and TV with a five minute break for free snacks and beers (and smokes) after the Christmas Hits Round.
*if we get our finger out (and find the time!) Yuletide Songs may be replaced with an Audio Christmas Round.
The winners of the nights Quiz win the Cash Prize this week there is no choosing envelopes! It could be around the £200 mark depending on how many entrants we get. The biggest cash prize to date is £317 won by Hand Over The Cash Michaela 25/03/13 in Quiz 63. We also have some runners up prizes as well, so it's well worth the £1 entry fee.
After the main Quiz we have a Christmas Wild Card Question which anyone in the bar can join in for a quid. It's one obscure bit of Festive Trivia where we are looking for a number or date and the nearest to the actual answer gets the whole pot of money taken for the Wild Card. MMH won Quiz 99s Wild Card and got a cool £31 in readies for his £1 stake. The biggest winner to date is Jonathan B who scooped a massive £47 in Quiz 55.
Come on down and join in The Colly Christmas Quiz, it's bound to be a cracking night out and will be worth quite a few quid to the winners!
