We had a decent turnout for Quiz 144 (despite the weather) and our 30 quizzers in eight Teams took the Cash Prize up to a reasonable £89.
It was a fairly competitive Quiz throughout but Three Beards, Two No Beards And One Lady Beard were always on top and it was no surprise when they won the Quiz by a two point advantage despite a late push from the Bobby Dazzlers. The winners managed to choose the Beers so that means we have an £89 Rollover for Quiz 145 which could increase to £120 plus depending on the turnout.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (as last week no clues... yet). 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 144 had a £22 Cash Prize for the Wild Card and this week there were three very close answers but it was Jay (again) who walked off with the Cash Prize... he's on a bit of a streak at the moment. 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 Jay was happy to once more testify this week... it can be worth a few quid too!
