A record 51 quizzers turned out in 11 Teams for Quiz 156 which took the Cash Prize from £29 up to a nice round £80.
It was a busy night, with so many teams it took some time between rounds to mark up but the atmosphere was great. The teams in the back room were having a competition amongst themselves as the front runners Heaven Knows I’m Quizzerable Now, All Aboard The Gus Bus Back Into The Championship (Idiots), The Hasty Puddings and Taxi For Poyet battled amongst themselves for top spot. Taxi For Poyet eventually triumphed and Team member Richard drew the Food Vouchers. This means a rollover of £80 going into Quiz 157 so a good turnout on the night could see us playing for a Cash Prize of £110 or more.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Herald the last pub traveling South on the High Street"). 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 156 had a big £34 Cash Prize and there were three people close but it was lucky Cara who was the closest so she left the Quiz £34 better off. Well done Cara.. 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 entertaining night out plus you could win some cash too,
