Quiz 119 was close... up to the final Film & TV Round where Wanderers Return, formerly Heroes and Zeroes (back after a few weeks absence on holiday), were in the lead by four points courtesy of an excellent Sports Round. In second spot Happy Birthday Florence Nightingale were hoping the leaders would slip up but they didn't and won the Quiz with a comfortable four point margin. They then went and drew the £84 Cash Prize! Being the generous bunch they are the winners Wanderers Return put £16 back in the pot so for Quiz 120 we could be looking at a £40+.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (the clue this week is – "They aren't just famous for maple syrup, moose and hockey" ) 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. Father to be Rob was well chuffed when he won Quiz 119s £26 Wild Card, that's his eighth Wild Card win since the Quiz began... pretty good going. The biggest winner to date is Jonathan B who scooped a massive £47 in Quiz 55.
Come on down and join in The Colly Quiz, it's an entertaining night out and it can be worth a few quid!
