It was a huge turnout for Quiz 163 and the record breaking 64 quizzers who entered boosted the Cash Prize on offer up to an all time high of £387.
The 14 teams involved were playing for a guaranteed £200 first prize, £100 second prize and whatever was left in the pot for third so it was a keenly contested competition.
There were several teams in the leading pack but You’d Better Cross His Legs I’ve Only Brought Three Nails and Three’s Up! gradually crept ahead and were tied on 50 points after the last round so it was a DART OFF for first and second. Stevie from Three’s Up! threw the best arrows and his team took the £200 with You’d Better Cross His Legs I’ve Only Brought Three Nails getting a consolation £100 for coming second.
Both our winners generously put cash back in the pot so we could be playing for a half decent £80 plus if we get a good turnout for Quiz 164.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "E, A, D, G, B and E are standard"). 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.
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. Due to the huge turnout for Quiz 163 we didn't manage to do the Wild Card but hopefully it will be back this week. 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.
