It was another canny turnout for last weeks Quiz 196 considering the grim weather! We had 30 people in eight Teams which boosted the Cash Prize to a reasonable £87.
The Hasty Puddings once more got off to a flyer but by the Music Round they had been leapfrogged by Beauties & The Beast. By the Film & TV Round Beauties & The Beast had a two point lead ahead of The Hasty Puddings and went on to win the nights Quiz convincingly after a strong finish.
Aileen from the winning team Beauties & The Beast went on to draw the food prize so that means we should have at least £120 for the Cash Prize this coming Monday.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "For the last six decades they literally went to number one"). 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 half decent £29 Cash Prize for the Quiz 196 Wild Card and our lucky winner this week was our main man from Leicester, Jack winning for the fourth time! 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 canny Monday night out and as Jack demonstrated for the fourth time, even if you don't win the main Quiz it's always worth putting a quid on the Wild Card!
