Back at the Cuddie Brae for our regular Thursday night quiz and Dumb & Dumber hit the top for another win. £25 Cuddie Brae voucher to them and the nearest wins prize again goes to The Belters.
Nine teams tonight, not too shabby for a quiz in the holiday season and with the Edinburgh Festival to compete with!
This week we had another very close final result, only one point between first and second. and one point also between third and fourth. With the exception of our new team, one and a half, every other team fell within a 300 point window with the top six inside a 123 point window.
New teams this week
We had two new teams this week. Brand new was one and a half who just turned up for some food but decided to join the quiz. The other, cabbaged, were a mix up of some players we have had before and a few others who joined for the first time.
Thanks for coming along guys, I hope you enjoyed yourselves and will come back again soon.
A pretty good looking scoreboard, I think we are on the right track.
We had a £1 winner this week on Take It Or Leave It. Darren, from The Rocks, made a good start eliminating a lot of the lower value boxes before going on to remove all the higher valued ones in quick succession. Left with two boxes containing £1 each, Darren’s fate was sealed. He went home £1 the richer thanks to our guaranteed win game. Next week the jackpot increases to £60.
Don’t spend it all in the same sweetie shop, maybe next time the jackpot could be yours.
We again had two attempts to Open The Box. Bubble & Squeak, who we haven’t seen for a while, were first to try for the jackpot of £665 but failed to pick the correct ball. The second attempt, for £300, fell to a team member from cabbage, again no winner.
Open the Box carries forward to next Thursday with an improved jackpot of £690, another record high for us and not to be sniffed at.
We will be back next Thursday at 8pm.
Let’s all try to get there about 15 minutes in advance so we can start on time. I’ll be setting time blocks for each round of the quiz in an attempt to get it back to running on time.

During the day of each quiz, I’ll be posting a free answer to a question being asked on the night. 25 extra points will be awarded to the team answering that question first on the night. To show how valuable this is, Dumb & Dumber gained the 25 points this week after seeing the answer on the Facebook page and went on to win the whole quiz by only 1 point.
