Come and join us for a Christmas Special Quiz 248 at The Colly on Monday 19th December. It's always a canny night out and this week we'll have some Festive Questions and maybe even a Multimedia Round! There's also a £50 rollover (thanks to last weeks winners Rascal Ferrets On Vibes) so with a decent turnout we could be playing for £80 plus!
We had an fantastic crowd of 47 for Quiz 247 last Monday and it was super close throughout where five of the eleven Teams involved were in with a chance to win it going into the final round. Rascal Ferrets On Vibes pipped the ironically named No More Messing – Hand Over The Dosh! by just a single solitary point in a frenzied climax to the Quiz and Jay, one of the winners, only went and pulled the Cash Prize of £450... a new Colly Record!
It's not just about winning the Cash Prize though, 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 random marking... there's always a chuckle to be had.
Come and join us for this weeks Christmas Quiz at The Colly, it's a great way to get into the festive spirit for the week ahead. 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 "It used to be a number one Festive achievement"). Following the Pics we then have four rounds on Christmas themed General Knowledge, Music and Film and TV and possibly a multimedia Round if we can get it done in time!
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 now £450 won by Rascal Ferrets On Vibes at Quiz 247.
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 again ran out of time at Quiz 247 but this week we will try and get a move on so we can manage a Christmas 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 a Christmas themed Quiz 248 at The Colly on Monday 19th 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 £80 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.
Give The Preview A Like!
To give us an idea if there will be a half decent turnout to our Quiz (or not) please hit the little 'Like' heart at the top left of this page if you intend on coming down. Then we will then be able to gauge if we should have one or two bar staff and if we need to print out five Picture Rounds and Answer Sheets or fifteen! Much appreciated.
