Come and join us for Quiz 247 at The Colly on Monday 12th December. It's always a decent night out and this week we will be playing for an unbelievable £430 or more Cash Prize.
We had an excellent turnout of 46 for Quiz 246 last Monday with three of the nine Teams challenging throughout for a chance to draw the Prize Envelope. Que? were the eventual winners by a single point but they agonizingly picked the Food Vouchers, so this coming Monday with a good* turnout the Cash Prize will be over £430... another new Colly Record!
*See the end of the Preview how you can to help us gauge if it's going to be a decent turnout!
It's not just about winning the Cash Prize though (errr.. really?), there's also the prestige of winning the longest running (and toughest) Quiz Night in Jesmond! Plus our Monday night Quiz is always good entertainment anyway, whether it be the dodgy questions, the (often libelous) Team names or the Quiz Master's questionable dress sense... there's always a chuckle to be had.
Come and join us at The Colly Quiz, it's a great way to give your grey matter a workout out for the week ahead and new teams are always given a warm welcome. In fact why not make a night of it and come down early for a pre-Quiz meal... we have some delicious food on the menu including authentic (and a tad spicy!) Thai Curries, the finest Latin Burgers in Newcastle plus a bar favourite, Chilli Cheese Fries!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round** (The clue this week is "Thicke no Coward of Judy's Aurora"). Following the Pics we then have four rounds on General Knowledge, Music, Sport and Film and TV with a five minute break for 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 Beers. 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 but with a turnout of over 30 people this Monday this record will exceed £430! So bring along a couple of mates and lets see if we can make it a record breaking night to remember.
With a turnout of 30 people or more this Monday we could be playing for an unbelievable Cash Prize of over £430... so bring along a couple of clever mates!
Every week after the Quiz we usually 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 very obscure question where we are looking for a number or date that nobody in their right mind would know and the nearest to the actual answer gets the whole pot of money taken for the Wild Card on the night.
Unfortunately we ran out of time at Quiz 246 but this week we will try and get a move on so we can manage a Wild Card! Our biggest Wild Card winner to date is Mike H who scored for a massive £61 in Quiz 177!
Come and join us for Quiz 247 at The Colly on Monday 12th December, it's always an entertaining night out (plus you get some delicious free half-time snacks) and this week we could be playing for an mind blowing £430 plus Cash Prize. Follow us us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with everything that's going on at The Colly!
Quiz Tip: You need to have a broad range of ages as well as knowledge in a team for The Colly Quiz. So if you are youngish try to get an older friend to join your team for the 70s and 80s questions and if you are on the wrong side of 40 try and get your kids or younger work colleagues to join you for the Music, TV and Films from the last 10 years.
