As expected, this is a very quiet January. Only 4 small teams at The Coalgate but that didn’t stop the fun, controversy, and banter between the teams. These guys all know each other well so the personal comments were flying free, ‘all in the best possible taste’. Who catchphrase is that?
Yaks Coalgate Queens
Despite not being able to spell their own team name, these guys are pretty damn clever. We traveled and educated, I think, we were all well tired of hearing their buzzer.
Starting as the favourites at the bottom of the leader board, because of their handicap, it didn’t take long to state their intentions with a great start. They even won the nearest wins questions just to rub it in.
Only 4 teams but still lots of fun and banter.
The Hasbeens performed out of their skins with the best score to date from a team who reckon they only play for the fun. Regardless of their ability their handicap put them right up there beside the leaders to give them a chance to win on the nearest wins question. Ultimately they failed in their attempt with Yak’s Coalgate Queens beating them to the 100 points.
The Windae Lickers had their poorest performance to date with a last-place finish. The questions definitely did not go their way tonight as could be seen by the number of times they resorted to guessing the answers.
Only Good Cop, Jack, had a great result for him. It would help his case if he, the singer, knew anything about music. In the music round, he scored 0 out of 12, poor shoe Jack!
Both of our current jackpot games jackpots have still not been won.
The Hasbeens were selected to play Take It Or Leave It. After drawing the game out as long as he could, Robert eventually went home with a huge £3 after eliminating the big prizes quite early on. The jackpot stays at £57 for the next quiz.
Attempting to Open The Box this month, was The Windae Lickers. After a failed attempt, the jackpot increases to £130.
