It was a small but cosy turnout of 19 Quizzers for Quiz 183 and the six teams involved took the Cash Prize up to a tempting £96.
It was a close run thing with two of our regular teams, Len Fairclough’s Swimming Club and Rascal Ferrets On Vibes virtually neck and neck throughout. It was Rascal Ferrets On Vibes who were triumphant though. Winning team member Jay was disappointed as he drew the Food Vouchers but everyone else was delighted as it means for this weeks Bank Holiday Monday Quiz we could be playing for a Cash Prize of over £120 with a half decent turnout.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "renommée mondiale"). 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 decent £26 in for the Quiz 183 Wild Card and there were two reasonably close to the answer but our serial Quizzer from Leicester, Jack, was just a couple of days out and was delighted with his £26 in readies. 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 Jack will no doubt agree it's worth putting in a quid for the Wild Card question even if it's not a massive crowd!
