Last weeks Quiz 206 was a cracking night, 47 Quizzers turned out to take the Cash Prize on offer to a serious £167 but the winners on the night drew the Beers! So this Monday the Cash Prize should exceed £200.
If you fancy a crack at The Colly Quiz make sure you get here early as it could be busy. In fact, why not make a night of it and come down for a pre-Quiz meal... we have some delicious food on the menu including authentic Thai Curries and the finest Latin Burgers in Newcastle! Check out our menu.
For Quiz 207 we start with a fantastic £167 rollover after the Beers were won at Quiz 206 so with a decent turnout on the night we could be looking at a massive £210+ Cash Prize! Well worth winning.
It's not just about the winning though, our Quiz is always a laugh, whether it be the subject of the questions, the comments by 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.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "With £210+ the objective who will console you for not knowing the wraps"). Following the Pics we then have four rounds on 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 Vibes who weren't in the running until the last round when they scored a spectacular 13 points to snatch victory from Normal Service Resumed who had led from the off. The winning Team then pulled the envelope containing the Beers so the £167 Cash Prize rolls over to Quiz 207.
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 decent £33 Cash Prize for Quiz 206s Wild Card. Our lucky winner was Tom S who's guess was just a couple of hundred thousand £ 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 207, it's always a cracking Monday night out and as Tom will tell you, even if your Team aren't even in the running for the main Quiz it's still well worth putting a quid for the Wild Card!
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 person 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.
