We had another terrific turnout for Quiz 174, there were 43 eager Quizzers making up ten teams and taking the Cash Prize on offer up to a small but perfectly formed £43.
The teams were evenly matched but by the final round there were three teams who could conceivably win it. New boys Alexander The Great were in a two point lead on 40 but The Peoples Front Of Judea weren’t far behind on 38 and Lucky Lane 7’s Got Phil’s Flip Flops were on 35. The new boys dropped a couple of points on the final round and Peoples Front Of Judea gained a couple so we had a tie... Dart Off!
Alexander The Great and Peoples Front Of Judea were quite evenly matched until new boy Clive went and threw a treble top! for the winning team Alexander The Great. Clive didn't do so well in the prize draw though, he drew the food vouchers which means the whole pot is a rollover for Quiz 175 and we could be playing for £80 plus with another decent turnout.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Remember Blair, BritPop and Bobbit?"). 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 canny £33 Cash Prize for the Quiz 174 Wild Card and there was only one person close, regular Quizzer Rob who was well chuffed with the cash. The biggest Wild Card Winner to date is Alistair who scooped a massive £58 in Quiz 172.
Come on down and join us for The Colly Quiz, it's always an entertaining night out and as Rob can confirm you can win some decent cash too.
