The pub was packed out again for for Quiz 159 and the 39 quizzers who turned out boosted the Cash Prize on offer to a tempting £195.
Our ten teams made short work of the Famous Australians Picture Round and there were a few teams fighting it out for pole position in the early part of the Quiz. As the night progressed we had five teams, Rascal Ferrets, Adam Johnson’s Under 16’s, The Hasty Puddings, Crufts At The Colly and Lynn’s Eight Grand A Year! in contention for a crack at the cash. It was Rascal Ferrets who nosed ahead in the final Round and emerged as winners by just one point but after all their hard work they then went and drew the Beers! This means we have a huge rollover of £195 going into Quiz 160 and another decent turnout could see us playing for a Cash Prize of £230 or more!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "We've got a really sweet picture round this week"). 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 159 had a decent £34 Wild Card Cash Prize! There were three people put exactly the same answer this week but after a tense Dart Off it was a very happy Sam who walked away with the cash. The biggest Wild Card Winner to date is Andy who scooped a massive £48 in Quiz 158.
Come on down and join us for The Colly Quiz, it's always an entertaining night out and if you are lucky you could win some serious cash too.
