The Tooting Social Club used to field a team every week, sometimes two teams. 8 people to a team but fewer people can play too. we have recently taken a break but I have missed the quiz so let's see how we get on on Monday.
It's a great quiz and great fun. We've come last, come first, came 7th, 13th - but whereever we've come, we've had fun. We even had two teams on the Easter Monday 2012 that came in first and second respectively.
The table is pre-booked, and labelled with 'Tooting Social club'. Myself or any other host will allways try to be there from 7.30 but sometimes not until 7.45. Please feel free to come earlier get a drink, and sit at the table. You're welcome to come later too, although the quiz starts at 8pm.
The quiz consists of 15 questions, in segments of 5, 5 and 5. They could be anything, general knowledge, European sport, London, Commonwealth games, History, Egypt (!) - those being some of the themes. Then there is the picture round, can be cartoon characters, film characters or just people in the news. They can be difficult.
Then 15 songs (30 seconds) - you have to get the song and the artist - that is harder than it looks and generally makes or breaks the winning team. Finally, ten film quotes - you have to get the film and the year. That is really hard - And I suggest you swot your film years. The randomness of the questions, music and films mean that you all have a chance that you might know the answer, that it could be a theme or a song year that you are very familiar with. So, don't be scared off, come along and pit your wits.
You can find my number on the side bar of this meet up page. Please remember that there are only 8 places on one team, so if you take a place, then you are promising to turn up. Teams will be selected by random - picking out a colour bead determines which team you will be sat with......So, I hope you enjoy. If you'd really, really want to sit with someone you bring, then that should be fine too.
First prize - £50 bar tab - 2nd Prize £25 - and we've won lots of times!
