We had another excellent turnout for Quiz 177, with 50 Quizzers making up twelve teams taking the Cash Prize to a tempting £156.
New boys Black & White started like a train, winning the Pic Round and General Knowledge with maximum points! By the half way stage these guys were six points ahead of second placed You Know Who Are Really Funny? Spontaneous Wrecks! Live At The Bridge Hotel 5th August and What’s Going On With Graham’s Heed? And it looked a formality as they had a nine point lead going into the last round Film & TV. However it seems this may be Black & White's Achilles heel as they dropped a lot of points in the final round but still managed to win the nights Quiz by an impressive four points.
After their splendid performance our winners then drew Food Vouchers to the delight of the other quizzers... which means we could be playing for a near £200 Cash Prize this Monday!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Halle Berry, Maud Adams and Honor Blackman"). 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 new record £61 Cash Prize for the Quiz 177 Wild Card and there were five in with a shout. Rob had 55, Jessica 54, Jack 36 and Brian was second closest with 37… but the winner of the biggest Wild Card to date was Mike H who was just two shy of the answer we were looking for. Mike was over the moon, he had just popped in for a pint towards the end of the Quiz!
Come on down and join us for The Colly Quiz, it's always an entertaining night out and as Mike will tell you, if you can't make the Quiz it's definitely worth popping in for the Wild Card question!
