After calling the Quiz off a couple of weeks ago due to the poor turnout we are hoping that the completion of the Hoppings and the near completion of the World Cup may give us a few more teams competing for the Cash Prize.
Quiz 124 had just five teams involved but that still took the Cash Prize up to a well tempting £98. It was a fairly close finish with 185 Candles On Geronimo's Birthday Cake just a couple of points ahead of Control Freaks. 185 Candles On Geronimo's Birthday Cake held their nerve to win and then drew the Cash Prize. The winners are a generous bunch though, they put £18 back in the pot for Quiz 125 so a good turnout could see us playing for nearly fifty quid!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (the clue this week is – "It's week four of the tournament, we've had the all time team and the flags so what about the shape?" ) 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. Phil 'The Power' Mac was a member of the winning team and he also won Quiz 124s £16 Wild Card so he went away a happy man on the night with pockets full of cash. 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 if you are lucky!
