We had another big turnout for Quiz 161 and the 42 quizzers who entered boosted the Cash Prize on offer up to an eye watering £278.
The ten teams involved made short work of the Waterfront Skylines from around the World Picture Round with some not even bothering to read which cities we were looking for!
It was a real battle on the night with several teams in the leading pack but winning it by just one point in the final round were our Quiz stalwarts The Hasty Puddings. The pub fell silent as the winning team member took his choice from the three prize envelopes... then gasps as they drew the Food Vouchers! This means we have a huge £278 rollover going into Quiz 162 and with a good turnout we could be playing for a potentially record breaking Cash Prize of £320 or more!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "If I’d known I was going to live this long, I’d have taken better care of myself"). Following the pics we then have four themed rounds of General Knowledge, Music, Sport and Film and TV with a five minute break for the 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 but this could be surpassed this week so make sure to get here early for a seat!
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 161 had another huge £38 Wild Card Cash Prize! There were three people close to the answer but it was a very happy Bill S who was the closest and he walked away with the wad of 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!
