It was another good turnout for last weeks Quiz 199 with 31 people in nine Teams taking the Cash Prize to a reasonable £92.
It was a well contested Quiz with three teams neck and neck to the final round where All I Want For Christmas Is Tickets To Spontaneous Wrecks nailed it with an excellent Film & TV Round and then went and drew the £92 Cash Prize! Great win considering there was just the two of them in the team.
We ran a survey during Quiz 199 to see how many teams would turnout if we had a Quiz on Monday 21st December and our Teams unanimously said yes, with six Teams guaranteeing to be there. So that means we will have a Christmas Special this coming week.
UPDATE... We are thinking about upping the entry fee to £2 a person, this would mean a 30 turnout would take the Cash Prize up to over £80 (as there is £23 already in the rollover thanks to the generosity of last weeks winners). Let us know what you think in the comments below although we will be asking your views on the night. The Prizes have been confirmed as:
Guaranteed Cash Prize for the winners (no envelopes this week)
Second Prize of a case of Buds
Third Prize of a case of Ciders
The Christmas Special starts at 9.00pm sharp (we've a lot to cram in!) with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Secret Santas" so it's not much of a clue really, it's pot luck if you now them or not!). Following the Pics we will then have four Festive rounds of Xmas General Knowledge, Xmas Music, Xmas Film and TV and then a multimedia round with clips of all sorts of Festive Obscurity.
The winners of the nights Quiz will get the Cash Prize, no picking envelopes this week. Second and third will get prizes as well.
If we have time 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 Xmas based 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 Xmas Wild Card on the night. We had a £31 Cash Prize for the Quiz 199 Wild Card and our lucky winner this week was Hodge. 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 Christmas Special Quiz, it's going to be a fab Festive Monday night out and as Hodge will agree, even if you don't win one of the main prizes it's always worth putting a sneaky couple of quid on the Festive Wild Card!
