Another pretty decent turnout of 32 for Quiz 193 took the cash on offer to over £150. It's pushing it but with a bumper turnout for Quiz 194 on Monday we could be looking at a near £200 Cash Prize.
At Quiz 193 The Hasty Puddings got off to a good start but as the night wore on Spontaneous Wrecks, Quizley Bears, Rascal Ferrets On Vibes, And Then There Were Two were all vying for top spot. As we went into the final Film & TV Round Spontaneous Wrecks and The Hasty Puddings were tied in top spot with 38 and Quizley Bears were right on their tails but it ended up a tie between the top two. After a tense Dart Off it was Spontaneous Wrecks who emerged victorious only to draw the Food Vouchers, hence we have the £151 Rollover going into next week.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "A concrete statement that touches the sky... but where?"). 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 promised, due to our new crowd of slightly younger teams we're going to write some more 'up to date' questions for the Quiz again this week (so we hope the 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 nice £36 Cash Prize for the Quiz 193 Wild Card and once again there were four pretty close answers, Chloe, Kev, Quiztopher Part 2 and Rob, but it was Quiztopher Part 2 who had the magic Post-It and walked off into the October night with a pocket stuffed full cash. 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 well good night out for a Monday and as Quiztopher Part 2 will no doubt agree, even if you don't win the main Quiz it's always worth a quid on the Wild Card question!
