Halfway through January already and only another 49 weeks till Christmas... bet that cheered you up! Never mind, put that thought to the back of your mind and get rid of those mid-winter blues by joining us for our Monday Night Quiz at The Colly!
It's always a laugh, whether it be the subject of the questions, the comments of the Quizzers or even the gullibility of the Quiz Master, there's always a chuckle to be had. Some weeks there's only £50 or so Quid to win whereas some weeks there's £100, £200 or once £300 plus as a Cash Prize. So there's money to be won as well as a good night out.
This week we start with a small but perfectly formed £10 in the kitty after the Cash was won at Quiz 202 but a decent turnout on the night and we could be looking at nearly £50... which is better than a slap in the chops with a soggy winter scarf!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "a count noun reinvention of Q72"). Following the Pics we then have four 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.
The winners of last weeks Quiz were Scary Monsters And Super Creeps who topped the nights Quiz by an impressive nine points. They pulled the £85 Cash Prize in the draw and generously put £10 back in for this week.
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 for the Wild Card on the night. We had a fairly decent £32 Cash Prize for Quiz 202s Wild Card and our lucky winner this week was Louise T who was closest to the answer. Our biggest Wild Card winner to date is Mike H who scored for a massive £61 in Quiz 177!
Come and join us for Colly Quiz 203, it should be a decent Monday night out and as Louise T will tell you, even if your Team has a 'mare in the Quiz it's still well worth putting a quid on the Wild Card!
