The Dr Paul Quiz League for December begins tonight. Results from all Dr Paul quizzes that take place in December will funnel into a league table and the top team will win a spectacular prize, just in time for New Year.
Points will be based on the Eurovision Song Contest system and will be scored by the top ten teams at every quiz (12, 10, 8, 7, 6 ,5 ,4 ,3 , 2, 1)
Meanwhile, The bottle of vodka prize at Smart City Hostel has been replaced with a more universal offering of £20 for the bar. This means that if you don’t like vodka, there is now a meaningful prize for the Smart City Quiz.
Smart City Hostel is Edinburgh’s poshest hostel and is probably 5-star. You can find it on Blackfriars St or you can use the Cowgate entrance (just along from Bannerman’s)
Last week’s winners, the HIGH STREET HI-JACKERS are pictured. Are you smarter than a random colleciton of Americans and Germans?
FOREST WHITAKER’S LAZY EYE spent the first half of the day burying their Grandad and the second part of the day kicking everyone’s arse at the pub quiz.
Perhaps their relative’s demise was the inspiration behind them nearly answering everything right and taking no prisoners. Wine for them but they missed out on a chance at the Jackpot because Melissa didn’t know nothing about Cockleshell Bay (too young).
That left the door open for THE FORTUNE COOKIES who sent up Del, a man who wisely took the crowd’s advice on the origin of Sprite (Germany) and slayed The Beast to take the £20.
Winners at Jenny Ha last night were I JUST HATE PUB QUIZZES who managed to swat through their hatred and come out on top of the Jenny’s pile of teams.
They could have gone one better and taken the £20 cash but music Paul didn’t know about the boundaries of Hungary.
His geography blunder: Hungary has 7 neighbours, not 6. Perhaps he forgot about Serbia?
Asked afterwards how he felt, Paul said “Certainly if you’ve played a stringed instrument like a guitar beofre, that helps with the mandolin – but the more I learn the instrument the more I find there is to it,” before battering in to a night of Scottish music with Tam.
Wise words from Paul, and the lack of win means that next week’s rollover is up to £40.
Germany and America are two of the world’s most no-nonsense countries EVER and the two combined to create a special winning force last night at the Smart City Cafe.
The HIGH STRET HI-JACKERS wiped the floor with the various lily-livered Brits, Aussies and Kiwis to take the booze and the £100,000 (chance).
Unfortunately Scott was rubbish at scratching the scratchcard and came away with NOTHING!
Maybe next week! Smart City quiz returns next week at 8.30pm on Thursday. See you then. Join the Smart City Quiz Facebook Group to receive news of the cheat phrase for next week.
Well done also to the SINGLE WITH LADIES team who survived being ID’d, seconds after winning an orange Bacardi Breezer for being completely rubbish after the first two rounds. Two humiliations for the price of one, bravely borne.
Swedish blokes are un-nerving, decisive, strong and unwavering.
This folk-knowledge was proven last night at Reverie by Ben, a patriotic Swede in a yellow T-Shirt who took Von Rumpy Pumpy’s wine-winning star team performance and turned it into a personal triumph by battering through the cash challenges and effortlessly earning £60.
Nice jokes round too. We had all sorts of gentle comedy gold that we didn’t have to read out the ones about AIDS and gang rape. These are available by email on request.
Next Monday the REverie jackpot starts again at twenty new quiz pounds. See you there.
