Tiebreaker Tiebreaker, Who Is The Best Team of Them All?

Nick H

As well as the Jackpot cash prize we needed tiebreaker questions to settle all the prizes this evening at The Highwayman. It was very close all evening with only six points separating the top and bottom teams at the end of the first half of the quiz and only ten points at the end. "Against All Odds" were again vying for the top prize, but once again were the bridesmaids (!?!?) as "Its been a while" secured the win and the £40 bar voucher prize by knowing the exact year when Bombay become Mumbai, Nick Leeson was arrested, Mandela awarded a trophy etc.

Having a rough idea of Neptune's average distance from the sun was necessary to secure the £20 bar voucher for the second least points and it's fair to say that "Colin's Kiddy's" had no idea! The "Escapologists" were pretty close - only 500 million km away, but "The undecided" were the closest and accordingly scooped the pool.

We then moved on the Jackpot question where knowledge of the length of the Trans-Siberian railway was necessary to have a chance of winning the £130 cash prize. "Five go Quizzing" proved to be the most knowledgeable on the subject and selected envelope 8 of the remaining seven jackpot envelopes. They were winners, but only of a bag of crisps - much needed by the boy! So, the weekly Jackpot now increases in value to £150 and rolls over to next weeks Quiz Night on Wednesday 29th August. As always, all are welcome but don't forget (especially team "Better late than never") it's 7.00 pm for a 7.30 pm start and it's also advisable to book a table in advance on 01442 285480. Hopefully see you again then.
