Quiz 306 is part of the Worlds Biggest Pub Quiz... raising money for Prostate Cancer UK. So get yourself down this Monday, enjoy the Quiz and raise money for this fantastic charity.
We had a fabulous turnout of 54 quizzers in 12 teams for Quiz 305 and this took the Cash to a near record £474, so another huge turnout* like that this coming Monday and we could raise at least £50 plus for Prostate Cancer UK.
*See the end of the Preview how you can to help us gauge if it's going to be a decent turnout!
Whilst there may be no cash prize on offer this week (it's all going to a good cause) there will be prizes to win, lots of them... but you will have to turn up on the night to find out what they are! Plus you will still be pitting your wits against the top brains in Jesmond (and beyond) for the prestige of winning the longest running (and hardest) Quiz Night in the area.
The World's Biggest Pub Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round. then following the Pics we have four rounds on various subjects with the usual break for free snacks and topping up drinks after round two.
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 and so on). It's a single, very odd 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. No drawing of envelopes! Our biggest Wild Card winner to date is Mike H who scored for a massive £61 in Quiz 177!
There wasn't time at Quiz 305 to have a Wild Card Question because of the huge turnout and team numbers but we will have a Wild Card for Quiz 306.
Join us for Quiz 306 at The Colly on Monday 26th February, it's always an entertaining night out (plus you get some delicious free half-time snacks) and this week we could be playing for over £460 Cash.
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 difficult to call at The Colly, some weeks it can be 40+ yet other weeks, even with a whopping Cash Prize, we might have just 20 odd in... and there seems to be no rhyme nor reason for the fluctuation (apart from if it's raining so it seems!).
To give us an idea if there will be a half decent turnout (or not), if you are planning on coming down please click the little 'Like' heart at the top of the page. This will help us 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.
