We are into February already, the worst month of the year according to some in sales but don't despair we kick off with a possible £100 plus Cash Prize which wouldn't be a bad start would it?
We have insider knowledge this week that it could be your best chance to topple our resident eggheads (that win 90% of the Quizzes, boo, hiss etc) so keep reading and make sure you swot up on the pics, it could be your secret weapon.
It's not just about the winning though, our Quiz is always a laugh, whether it be the subject of the questions, the comments of the Teams or even the Quiz Master's inability to mark up correctly after 23 pints of Fosters... there's always a chuckle to be had. Some weeks there's only £50 or so quid to win whereas some weeks there's over £100 as a Cash Prize (we even got as high as £300 once). So there's hard cash to be won as well as a canny night out.
This week we start with £68 in the kitty after the Food Vouchers were won again at Quiz 204 so a decent turnout on the night and we could be looking at a possible £100!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Ever looked closely at technology with style? After all it is all about the detail in the appliance of science."). 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 It’s Been A Busy Month For Celebrity Undertakers who ran away with it from the off, eventually putting five points between them and second placed Rascal Ferrets On Vibes by the finish. The winning Team then pulled the envelope containing the Food Vouchers again so the £68 Cash Prize rolls over to Quiz 205. We will let you into a secret though... two of our form Teams key members are in the States this week, they will be pulling in reinforcements but this could be your best chance in a while to topple them... and if you are lucky, pull the Cash Prize too. So make sure you get a decent team together for Monday's Quiz 205.
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 reasonable £24 Cash Prize for Quiz 204s Wild Card and our lucky winner was The Hasty Puddings team member Anto who's guess was well closer than anyone else on the night. 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 205, it's always a belting Monday night out and as Anto will tell you, even if your Team aren't at the races on the night it's still well worth putting a quid on the Wild Card!
