It was a canny turnout of 26 Quizzers for Quiz 181 and the eight teams involved boosted the Cash Prize up to £42.
It was another keenly contested Quiz last week with four teams at the top throughout. The Sport scores gave us what looked like a pretty conclusive leaders board going into the final Film & TV Round. Los Bombaderos with 36 had a massive five point lead on Rascal Ferrets On Vibes on 31. We then had The Hasty Puddings on 30 and Get That Tail Fin Off My Beach on 29. Rascal Ferrets On Vibes had a snorter of a last round and leaders Los Bombaderos didn't which meant both teams were neck and neck at the final whistle so it was a Dart Off!
After an incredible round of darts Los Bombaderos emerged the victors and drew the Beers. This means there is a decent £42 in the pot and a good turnout could take that to over £70 for Quiz 182 on Monday 17th August.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Tippi – Melanie... Melanie – Dakota"). 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 £33 in for the Quiz 181 Wild Card and there were three close to the answer we were after but it was Quiz regular Robin who was the nearest and scooped the £33 Cash Prize. 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 Robin will tell you even if you don't win the team game it's still worth putting in a quid for the Wild Card question!
