After a week off for Christmas we return this Monday for the first Quiz of of 2015.
Just before the festivities an excellent turnout for Quiz 149 took the Cash Prize on offer to a mind boggling £183.
It was another exciting contest with four or five teams in contention but He Would Say That Wouldn’t He gradually pulled away from the competition to win the £183 Cash Prize quite comfortably in the end. I’m Mandy Fry Me came in at second and they got Santa's Sack full of goodies for their efforts.
Our generous winners He Would Say That Wouldn’t He put £30 back in the Prize Money fund so a decent turnout could see us with a £60+ Cash Prize this week.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "The same as last years first quiz of the year!"). Following the pics we return to our standard format of 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.
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 for the Wild Card. We ran out of time to have a Wild Card for Quiz 149 due to the excessive marking (12 Teams!) and the multimedia malfunction but hopefully it will be back to normal this week. The biggest Wild Card winner to date is Jonathan B who scooped a massive £47 in Quiz 55.
Come on down and join us for The Colly Quiz, it's a cracking Monday night out.

**Why not put a couple of quid in the Wild Card this week? You can have as many goes as you want and all the cash goes to the winner. Let's try and beat that £47 Record we have had since Quiz 55.
