We had 26 Quizzers turn out on a cold Monday night in February taking the Cash Prize on offer for Quiz 157 to a canny £106.
Six of the seven teams struggled with the Coat of Arms Picture Round but our seventh team Taxi For Carver were Heraldic experts and their top marks had them well ahead for the first two rounds. They looked to be walking the Quiz until the infamous Sports Round where their shocking return of three points let the chasing Heaven Knows I’m Quizzerable Now and The Peoples Front Of Judea back into contention. A remarkable 12 point score in the Film & TV round saw Heaven Knows I’m Quizzerable Now win the Quiz even though at one point they had been eight points off the leaders Taxi For Carver. After that incredible turnaround Heaven Knows I’m Quizzerable Now drew the Food Vouchers so we have a rollover of £106 going into Quiz 158 and a good turnout could see us playing for a Cash Prize of £130 or more.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "They were swinging"). 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 157 had a £22 Cash Prize and there were again three people close but it was lucky Rob who amazingly guessed the exact answer and left the Quiz with an extra £22 in readies. 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,
