‘The Craptaculars’ plop into first place. ‘Wil-ber-Force Be With You’ release the £270 jackpot from bondage

I was taught at school that water and electricity don’t mix. It was good, therefore, that The Calf’s roof prevented the downpour outside from mingling with the electric atmosphere inside. It would have been dangerous. Explosive, even.

A point-heavy first half, crammed with three part questions, tested all the teams. Who knew that Walt Disney had a phobia of Mice? Or, that an oologist is someone who collects birds’ eggs? Well, I am pleased to report, with only the odd hint here and there, a fair few teams at last night’s quiz did know! ‘Two Strangers in a Bar’ and ‘Let’s Get Quizzical’ both getting there.

The half-time Tuppenny Toss got the money flying. ‘Shaken Handsy Goode’, a team which did include an accountant, proved themselves to be the handiest when it came to managing the coins. It wasn’t quite enough to finish the quiz in pole position though. That honour was hard-earned by ‘The Craptaculars’, who just pipped last week's winners, ‘The Curtain Raisers' to the top spot.

With the quiz prizes won, there was still one mystical figure yet to make an appearance, the elusive, Mr Jack Pot. Sitting at £270, there was a lot at stake and after a tense question on the average number of miles a woman in the UK drives, it was ‘Wil-Ber-Force Be With You’ who got to play for the jackpot. A few card-turns later, eternal glory (and a good wad of cash) was theirs. All hail the Jackpot Winners!
