It was a bumper turnout of 53 for last weeks Quiz 194 which took the Cash Prize on offer to a massive £207. Our 14 teams were buzzing at the thought of winning such a huge wad!
Once more the Hasty Puddings got off to a flyer with Who’s Been Putin Bombs In Our Planes, Spontaneous Wrecks and Rascal Ferrets On Vibes all in the chasing pack. It was nip and tuck throughout the Quiz and the Hasty Puddings were looking favourites going into the final round. Our leaders had a mare though and second placed Who’s Been Putin Bombs In Our Planes had a storming final round to leap frog them and win the Quiz by one point.
There was a hush around the bar as Team Member Richard drew the envelope and a collective sigh as he announced Cash Prize! What a result for Who’s Been Putin Bombs In Our Planes four team members who shared the Cash between them then generously put £27 back in the pot.
So it's not quite back to scratch as another bumper turnout for Quiz 195 would see us playing for £70 plus... and there's always the Wild Card!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Conocida en todo el mundo"). Following the Pics we then have four 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 we have been doing recently, with our new additions of slightly younger teams we're currently including some more 'up to date' questions.
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 for the Wild Card on the night. We had a mammoth £46 Cash Prize for the Quiz 194 Wild Card and there were eight people in with a shout but it was our barman Chris who was the closest and won his first ever Wild Card after three years of trying! Well done to Chris, what a night to break your duck. 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 Monday night out and as Chris will tell you, even if you don't win the main Quiz it's always worth a pound punt on the Wild Card question!
