We had another belting turnout for Quiz 138. Whilst there wasn't as many as the previous week there were still 37 folks in nine teams which bulked the Cash Prize on offer up to a eye watering £160.
It was a really tightly fought Quiz with five teams in with a chance of winning at the final round. When the scores were finally totted up we had a tie between Who Parked That Tractor There? and Quiz On My Face. Jay from Quiz On My Face was triumphant in the Dart Off to decide the winners and as he was on a bit of a roll he chose the envelope too and got the £160Cash!. The generous winners put £30 back in the pot so we could have a £60 plus prize to play for at Quiz 139.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (the clue this week is – "To recognise those preceding spice, biscuits and beer") then four themed rounds of General Knowledge, Music, Sport and Film and TV with a five minute break for free snacks and topping up drinks 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 on the night. Quiz 138 had a decent £24 in for the Wild Card and this week Pete W was the lucky recipient. 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 night out and as Pete found... it can be worth a few quid!
