Quiz 85 was won by our regulars Who Lives In A Hearse Like This, again by just one point. It was a close one Quiz 85 with two teams fighting it out in the final round for the winning spot. The quiz was won due to a Brand error by The Academy handing the win to Who Lives In A Hearse Like This. Team member Guy M pulled the Cash Prize, which was a huge £195. What a generous bunch though, they put £40 back into the pot so a decent turnout for Quiz 86 could take the prize on offer to £70+.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a picture round (the clue this week is It's a bit like Catchphrase but for 'Church') then four themed rounds of General Knowledge, Music, Sport and Film and TV with a five minute break for free snacks and beers (and smokes) after the Music Round.
The winners of the nights Quiz choose from three envelopes that contain either the cash prize, food vouchers or a case of drinks. If the cash isn't drawn it rolls over to the next weeks Quiz, the biggest cash prize to date is £317 won by Hand Over The Cash Michaela 25/03/13 in Quiz 63.
After the main Quiz we have a Wild Card Question which anyone in the bar can join in for a quid. It's one obscure question 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. James won Quiz 85s Wild Card and got £24 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 Quiz, it's an entertaining evening out and it can be worth a few quid if you are lucky!
