It was another enthusiastic turnout for last weeks Quiz 197 with 36 people in twelve Teams which took the Cash Prize to a mouth watering £123.
This week it was Watch Out Hodgie’s About who were out of the blocks the quickest and they never looked back. By the final round they were a massive eight points clear of their nearest challengers and it was no surprise that they ran out winners on the night
Hodgie from the winners then went on to draw the Cash Prize of £123 to complete a perfect night for the team. Watch Out Hodgie’s About are a generous bunch of guys too though, they put £23 back in the pot for Quiz 198 next week... so we could have a Cash Prize of near £60 with another decent turnout.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "You might use these graphics to choOSe what to visit on a UK trip"). 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 £25 Cash Prize for the Quiz 197 Wild Card and our lucky winner this week was Max who split the prize with his team mates (another generous guy). 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 Max found out, even if you don't win the main Quiz it's always worth putting a quid on the Wild Card!
