Andy was our debutant presenter for Quiz 136 (as regular presenter John had a bout of man flu!) and we had 25 keen quizzers turn out to boost the Cash Prize on offer to a canny £65.
It was a well contested Quiz up to the last round where sympathetically named Isn’t Andy Nervous Tonight? forged ahead to win the quiz by a three point margin from second placed Rice Would Be Nice on 32. The winners drew the beers so that gives us a Rollover for Quiz 136 where we could have a Cash Prize of over £100 to play for if there's a decent turnout.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (the clue this week is – "Product, Fashion, Graphic, Industrial, UI...") 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 136 had £24 in for the Wild Card and our lucky winner was Matt D who was closest to the answer even though he was a few thousand out! 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 as Matt D found... it can be worth a few quid!
