Come and join us for a Special New Year Quiz 249 at The Colly on Monday 2nd of January 2017... it could be a potential Cash Prize of over £100.
As it's a Bank Holiday Monday, there's football on and most of us are back to graft on the Tuesday we are running a Poll to see if there will be enough people joining us at the Quiz (there's nothing worse than doing 40 Questions, a Picture Round and a Wild Card and nobody turns up!). So please click Damn Right! below if you are going to turnout. If we get over 25 definitely coming it's on.
We had a canny crowd of 27 for our Festive Special Quiz 249 way back on December 20th (seems yonks ago!) and it was a fairly close affair until the absolutely ridiculous Christmas Countries Round. Spontaneous Wrecks somehow got six to sneak ahead in that round and smashed Film & TV to come a Festive First with 50 points. They then went and pulled the Food Vouchers (for a change) so there's a £77 Rollover for the upcoming Quiz.
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 New Years Quiz at The Colly, it's a great way to finish of the Festive Break and prepare 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 "How well do you remember 2016 then"). Following the Pics we then have four rounds on 2016 themed General Knowledge, Music, Sport and Film and TV.
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 New Year 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 2016 themed Quiz 249 at The Colly on Monday 2nd January 2017, it's always an entertaining night out (plus you get some delicious free half-time snacks) and this week we could be playing for a £100 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!
The turnout for our quiz night is always hard to call at The Colly, some weeks it can be 50+ yet other weeks we might have just 20 odd and there seems to be no rhyme nor reason for the fluctuation.
To give us an idea if there will be a half decent turnout (or not) please click the little 'Like' heart at the top of this page, at least 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.
