With the appointment of Rafael Benitez as Manager of Newcastle and his first match in charge being away at Leicester on Monday night will there be anybody at our Quiz?
It could be a Cash Prize of £120+ but we think the prospect of watching the Premiership leaders v our relegation strugglers could lure a few of our Quiz regulars away to boozers showing the clash. So we are running a vote to see if we should have the Quiz. Please let us know using the Vote form below...
Last weeks Quiz 210 was another quality nights entertainment. A canny crowd of 33 Quizzers in ten teams took our Cash Prize to £95 on the night. The winners drew the Beers so a half decent crowd this Monday (if we go ahead) could see our teams playing for over £120.
It's not just about the winning though, our Quiz is always a chuckle, whether it be the subject of the questions, the comments by the Teams or even the dodgy answers given there's always a laugh to be had.
If you fancy a crack at The Colly Quiz make sure you get here early as it has been fairly busy for the last few weeks. In fact, why not make a night of it and come down for a pre-Quiz meal... we have some fantastic food on the menu including authentic (and hot!!) Thai Curries plus the finest Latin Burgers in Newcastle! Check out our menu.
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "A rather distorted view of some famous warblers"). 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 the Spit Polished Knobs who won courtesy of two 100% Round Scores in a very tightly contested Quiz. Team member Nick drew the Beers so if we go ahead this Monday we have a rollover of £95.
Every week 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 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.
There was a reasonable £22 in the pot for Quiz 210s Wild Card and it was our friend Phil 'The Power' Mac (who hadn't been to the Quiz for months) that was the lucky winner 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 Quiz 211 at The Colly, it's always a decent Monday night out and this week, if it goes ahead we could be playing for a potential £120 plus Cash Prize.
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.
