Another massive turnout of 46 for last weeks Quiz 192 took the cash on offer to well over a ton, £119 to be precise. Our new crowd, who descended upon us for Quiz 191, returned... even after that Coke Picture Round which was great news.
Pussies Galore got off to a flyer with both Quizlamic State and Taylor Made in a close second with Spontaneous Wrecks in third. In a closely fought Quiz and despite stiff competition from Quizlamic State, Taylor Made and Spontaneous Wrecks, Pussies Galore held their nerve and emerged winners by three points. After all that hard work they then went and drew the beers, which was unlucky for them but gives us a potential £150 pus Cash Prize to play for at Quiz 193.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "They're a bit of classic saucy communication"). 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. And, as promised to our 'new crowd' of slightly 'younger' teams we're going to write some more 'up to date' questions for the Quiz this week (so we hope you new crowd all turn out!).
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 well decent £39 Cash Prize for the Quiz 192 Wild Card and there were again four reasonably close answers, Peter with 386, Nick Chomo with 427, Q with 450 and Alex with 451. It was Nick Chomo who was the closest though and he was well chuffed with his £39 wind fall. 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 a champion Monday night's entertainment and as Nick will no doubt agree, even if you don't win the main Quiz it's always worth putting a quid for the Wild Card question!
