We had another modest but very enthusiastic crowd of 21 involved in Quiz 170 which took the Cash Prize on offer up to a very reasonable £75.
There were eight teams involved and it was, as always, a very competitive Quiz throughout. By the final round we had four teams battling it out for the prize. Starts Out Ginger, Ends Up Grey were a point in the lead on 28, The Academy and Who Needs Max & Rex were tied in second on 27 with Toe Cutters in third on 26. It was The Academy who emerged victorious by a couple of points due to one team members superior knowledge of porn stars! Tom did the honours and picked the envelope but drew the short straw getting the Food Vouchers so that means we could be playing for over £100 in this weeks Quiz.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Sunday June 21st applies to the famous too"). 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 reasonable if not life changing £20 Cash Prize for the Quiz 170 Wild Card and there were three guesses close... but it was Alex G who was the closest and 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 Alex quite happily found out if you're lucky you can win some decent cash too.
