Is it just me or is January just the dullest month of the year? It's cold, it's wet, we're all skint after Christmas and everyone seems to be on the wagon... well why not just say bollocks to all of that, brush away those January blues and come join us for our Monday Night Quiz at The Colly!
It's always a chuckle, 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 laugh 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.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Quelli famosi una dozzina era difficile da trovare!"). 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 Rascal Ferrets On A Massive New Year Downer courtesy of a winning nine scored in the final round to give them a cracking total of 41 on the night. They pulled the Food Vouchers in the draw though so this week we have a rollover of £47 going into the pot and a decent turnout for Quiz 202 and we could be looking at an £80 plus Cash Prize.
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 £24 Cash Prize for Quiz 201s Wild Card and our lucky winner this week was Rob 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 202, it should be a decent Monday night out and as Rob will agree, even if you win the main Quiz it's still definitely worth putting a quid on the Wild Card!
