We had another decent turnout for Quiz 176, with 29 Quizzers making up seven teams which took the Cash Prize over a ton to £106.
Four Teams started well but by the Film & TV Round Just F*** Off Then You Thieving Greek Twats! were looking favorites on 33 with Rob’s Angels close behind on 31. Rob's Angels made a fist of it in the final round but Just F*** Off Then You Thieving Greek Twats! were too strong and won the Quiz by an impressive three points.
Richard from the winning team was designated to draw the winning envelope and to everyone's delight (including Richard) he got the Food Vouchers... so this means we could be playing for £140 plus this Monday!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "A repeat... the first was 82, second 89 and last time was 163"). 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 very reasonable £31 Cash Prize for the Quiz 176 Wild Card and there were four answers there or thereabouts, Simon – Quizee Rascal was close, Haydon was slightly closer, Carol was really close but this weeks Wild Card winner was Malcolm who was nearly spot on with his guess. 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 Malcolm will agree, you might not win the Quiz but you could be lucky and win some decent cash in the Wild Card.
