It was another cracking turnout for Quiz 143 with 34 quizzers in ten Teams boosting the Cash Prize up to a decent £59.
It was a very close Quiz with several teams vying for top spot throughout and when it came to the final round of Film and TV there were still five teams in with a chance of winning. It ended up a draw between Your Specs Is On Fire (Idiots) and First Hurdles which meant (to Quiz Master John's delight) a Dart Off!
First Hurdles won the Dart Off courtesy of some top drawer darts from Jenny. Then to everyone's delight Jenny then went and drew Food Vouchers... so we could be looking at a Cash Prize of £90 plus for Quiz 144.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (just to mix it up a bit there ain't a clue this week, everyone starts level).
Following the pics we then have 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 round two.
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 143 had another £29 Cash Prize for the Wild Card and this week we had three entries from Tim, Rob and Chris M which were exactly the same 0.03% out from the actual answer so incredibly it was another Dart Off! Tim was the one who emerged victorious so he walked away a happy man and £29 better off. 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 a belting night out and as Tim found out this week... it can be worth a few quid too!
