It was a canny turnout of 29 Quizzers for Quiz 179 and the eight teams involved took the Cash Prize to a decent £60.
It was another close run Quiz with three teams battling it out and there wasn't much in it going into the final Film & TV Round. Rascal Ferrets In Vibes, Vibes, Vibes were two points to the good with 37 ahead of Hello John, Got A New Motor on 35. Then in third we had Go See Spontaneous Wrecks on 34.
Rascal Ferrets In Vibes, Vibes, Vibes only scored seven on the final round which meant they were leap frogged for top spot by both Go See Spontaneous Wrecks and Hello John, Got A New Motor. This gave us a Dart Off which Hello John, Got A New Motor went on to win comfortably.
Dart off winner Richard then drew the food vouchers which means for Quiz 180 we could have a near £100 up for grabs.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "They would announce to us that it apparently does not derive from the four cardinal directions?"). 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 £22 in for the Quiz 179 Wild Card and there were four close to the answer we were after but it was Hayden who was the closest and won himself £22. Our biggest Wild Card winner to date is Mike H who scored for a massive £61 in Quiz 177.
Come on down and join us for The Colly Quiz, it's always an entertaining night out and as Hayden will no doubt agree, if you can't win the Quiz it's definitely worth putting in a quid for the Wild Card question!
