It was another good turnout for Quiz 142 with 32 quizzers over eight Teams increasing the Cash Prize up to a huge £145.
It started off a bit cagey with three or four teams in the mix but as the rounds went on there looked to be only one winner... in fact by the final Film & TV Round, leaders Stranger On The Slab were a huge six points ahead so it was no surprise when they won the Quiz. To everyone's disappointment they then went and drew the Cash but fair play to the team they generously put £25 back into the pot so we could be looking at a Cash Prize of £50 plus for Quiz 143.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (the clue this week is "Why choose to sport a Sparrow when a Ducktail is far more distinctive")
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 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 142 had a £29 Cash Prize for the Wild Card and this week it was Jay who was both second closest and the closest to our answer (see the report to find out how!) and he was well chuffed. 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 is finding more and more... it can be well worth a few quid!
