A decent turnout for Quiz 148 took the Cash Prize on offer to a whopping £136.
It was another exciting contest with four or five teams in the mix throughout. In the last round we had Operation Yule Tree, Silent Shite (Idiots), The Peoples Front Of Judea, Santa & His Helpers, Merry Christmas and The Academy all in with a shout. It was Operation Yule Tree who held their nerve to win Quiz 148 but they drew the Food Vouchers so this means £136 rolls on to Quiz 149 our final Quiz of 2014.
This week there will be no prize envelopes, the winner of Quiz 149 will get all of the cash in the pot and with over thirty entrants that could mean a prize of over £160. We also have a prize for second in the Quiz and a spot prize for best Team name, so get your thinking caps on!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Let's remember 2014"). 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. We will have a few Christmas Questions throughout but it won't be a Christmas themed Quiz like last week! If I can pull my finger out there could be a multimedia round which replaces Sport but we will see how it goes.
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 for the Wild Card. Quiz 148 had a huge £35 Cash Prize and this week there were four guesses that were close but it was Richard who was the closest. It was a highlight of the night for Richard as his team in their own words were 'Poor' but at least he was happy walking away with £35 in his pocket. The biggest winner to date is Jonathan B who scooped a massive £47 in Quiz 55.
Why not put a couple of quid in the Wild Card this week, you can put as many goes in as you want, all the cash goes to the winner and it could be you. Let's try and beat that £47 Record we have had since Quiz 55. We will also have a prize for second closest to the Wild Card answer tonight so it's well worth a couple of goes.
Come on down and join us for The Colly Quiz, it's a belting Christmas night out.
