Compared to recent nights it was a more cosy turnout of 27 for Quiz 165 but this still boosted the Cash Prize on offer up to a reasonable £102.
There were eight teams involved and by the final round we had three teams fighting it out for top spot. The Laaads and Robin Bastards were two points behind leaders Michaela Down Under but it was the front runners who smashed the final round with an excellent ten points to win the nights Quiz
Our ex second in command at The Colly Micky was, as the winning team name suggested, back from Oz for a visit so it was fitting that her team won on the night and only right that she was given the responsibility of drawing the winning envelope. Her luck was in as she drew the £102 cash and the winning team was given a rousing round of applause. So we start from scratch this week but a decent turnout could have us playing for over thirty quid.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is 070515). 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. We had a £24 Wild Card Prize for Quiz 165 and it was Big Dog who was miles closer than anyone else who won 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 as Big Dog found out if you're lucky you can win some decent cash too.
