The pub was packed out once more for for Quiz 160 and the 41 quizzers who turned out hiked the Cash Prize on offer to a humungous £236.
Our 12 teams obviously all had a sweet tooth as they mostly got high marks in the Cross Section Chocs Picture Round. As the Quiz progressed there were three teams looking like they were contenders for the the cash, Hop On The Bus Gus, The Peoples Front Of Judea and We Know We’re Shit But At Least We’re Staying Up. By the final Film & TV Round Wheels Fell Off The Bus Gus? (Idiots) had also hauled themselves into contention but it was Hop On The Bus Gus who finished the strongest and won the Quiz. The pub fell silent as winning team member Joe drew from the three prize envelopes... followed by roars of delight when he pulled out the Food Vouchers! This means we have a massive £236 rollover going into Quiz 161 and another good turnout could see us playing for a Cash Prize of £270 or more!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Some stunning vistas based on Marlon’s first Oscar winning film"). 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 160 had a massive £37 Wild Card Cash Prize! There were two people close but it was a very happy Hodgie who was the closest and 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're lucky you could win some serious cash too... especially this Monday
