Famous French, cockney geysers and a Dangermouse dilemma for a small but enthusiastic turnout at Quiz 184.
The Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys got off to a blinder in the Famous French Picture Round and never looked like relinquishing their lead throughout the Quiz. It was no surprise that they won it and team member Richard was hoping to draw the Beers rather than the £114 Cash Prize. He went middle and guess what... he drew the Beers! So that means there is a £114 rollover going into Quiz 185 and with a half decent turnout that could rise to over £140 on Monday night
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Express mail for guardian of the sun"). 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 not to be sniffed at £22 in for the Quiz 184 Wild Card and there were two reasonably close to the answer but Maxine had it spot on and was well pleased with her £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 a good night out and as Maxine will tell you it's always worth putting in a quid for the Wild Card question!
