It was a sparse but enthusiastic turnout for Quiz 188 last week and it turned out to be a very competitive night.
The Hasty Puddings were on form, leading at the end of every round right from the off. Previous weeks Champions The Laaaaaads, Onwalds Quiztian Soldiers, Rascal Ferrets On Vibes and You Can See A Full Moon From My Window Every Night And It’s Not Red Either were there or thereabouts throughout the Quiz and going into the final Film & TV Round any one of five of our six Teams could have won it.
It was The Hasty Puddings who were triumphant, winning their second ever Quiz by just a point from both The Laaaaaads and Onwalds Quiztian Soldiers. They drew the Food Vouchers though so this week we start Quiz 189 with a £24 rollover so a good turnout could see this rise to a £50 plus Cash Prize.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Marx get wright underwood"). Following the Pics we then have four themed rounds of General Knowledge, Music, Sport and Film and TV with a five minute break for the 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 Quiz we have a Wild Card Question which anyone in the bar can join in for a quid (or if you want two goes it's £2, three £3 etc). 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. We had a decent £30 in for the Quiz 188 Wild Card and there were two, Robin and Bear, reasonably close to the answer on the night. It was Bear who was the closest though, so despite his Team coming second in the Quiz, Bear walked off a happy man with £30 in his back pocket. Our biggest Wild Card winner to date is Mike H who scored for a massive £61 in Quiz 177.
Come and join us for The Colly Quiz, it's an entertaining night out and as Bear will tell you, even if you don't win the main Quiz it's always worth putting a quid in for the Wild Card question!
