Teams were thin on the ground for Quiz 139 but those who turned out had a cracking night and bumped the Cash Prize on offer up to £49.
The first couple of rounds were tight but Say Hola To Ebola started to steam ahead in the Sports round with a cracking score and went on to win the Quiz by three points ahead of The Hasty Puddings. The winning team (to everyones delight) drew the Beers so we could have a £70 plus prize to play for at Quiz 140 if we have a decent turnout.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (the clue this week is – "Saturday's magic number") 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 139 had just £15 in for the Wild Card but that wasn't a problem for winner Jay who was well happy to put the notes in his pocket. The biggest winner to date is Jonathan B who scooped a massive £47 in Quiz 55.
Come on down and join us for The Colly Quiz, it's an entertaining night out and as Jay will vouch for... it can be worth a few quid!
