Yes it's not a typo, our generous winners left a massive £9 in the pot for Quiz 130.
Eight teams turned out for Quiz 129 and the 26 Quizzers increased the Cash Prize to a very nice £89. Swansonite, with Googz back, were the form team early on but they faded in the Sport then Film and TV rounds and The Anthill Mob took full advantage scoring excellent marks in the final two rounds to win the quiz by a comfortable five points in the end. Will from The Anthill Mob then went and drew the £89 Cash Prize and as is tradition with Cash Winners they put £9 back in the pot, not their usual standard of generosity but at least it means a decent turnout on Monday and we could be playing for £40 possibly.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (the clue this week is – "Celluloid Shades" ) 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. Quiz 129 had a £24 Wild Card and our lucky winner was regular Quizzer Matt. Well done Matt the prize money will buy nearly eight pints of Three Hop ! 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!
