We had a cracking turnout of 48 for Quiz 172 which took the Cash Prize on offer up to a tempting £158.
There were 12 teams on the night and it was nip and tuck throughout ending with three teams in contention going into the final Film & TV Round. Free Shots At Tup Tup Palace – Saturday Only were in the lead on 45. Spontaneous Wrecks Have No Gigs To Play This Week were in second place on 44 and an outside third were We Survived The Smiler with a total points haul of 42. Free Shots At Tup Tup Palace – Saturday Only bossed the Film & TV to win the Quiz by a convincing four points and team member Sarah went and drew the Cash Prize of £158. It was hard lines on Spontaneous Wrecks Have No Gigs To Play This Week who had led the Quiz throughout but stalled at the Sports Round.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "pop parodies"). 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 record breaking £58 Cash Prize for the Quiz 172 Wild Card and there were three close... and both second and first were from the same guy! Alistair had two entries in the Wild Card and it had been well worth it as he pocketed the £58, well done Alistair.
Come on down and join us for The Colly Quiz, it's always an entertaining night out and as Alistair found out if you're lucky you can win some decent cash too.
