We had 36 quizzers turning out in ten Teams for Quiz 155 which took the Cash Prize to a eye watering £129.
It was a excellent evening full of banter with I’m Only Here ‘Cos My TV’s Broken, Team Name On Both Sheets Please, Four Candles, The Peoples Front Of Judea and UHT all vying for pole position over the course of the Quiz. Team Name On Both Sheets Please gradually crept out in front, with some excellent round scores to eventually win the Quiz by a massive seven points! Team member Sarah then went and drew the £129 Cash Prize. They are a generous bunch the winners though, they put £29 back in the pot so we aren't starting from scratch for Quiz 156, a good turnout could see a £60+ Cash Prize to play for, which ain't bad.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Like us celebs can choose their friends but..."). Following the pics we then have four themed rounds of General Knowledge, Music, Sport and Film and TV with a five minute break for free snacks and topping up drinks after round two.
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 for the Wild Card. Quiz 155 had a £32 Cash Prize and there was one lucky fella got the answer absolutely spot on. Colly regular Robin cheered with delight when Quiz master John announced it was he who had the correct answer and to complete an evening of generosity Robin shared the £32 Wild Card winnings with his team mates. The biggest winner to date is Jonathan B who scooped a massive £47 in Quiz 55.
Come on down and join us for The Colly Quiz, it's always an interesting and entertaining night out plus you could win some cash too,
