Week of Quiz

Week of Quiz continues at The Shepherds on Archway Road. No sign of any minor celebrities this evening but still the place was packed out. Those attending were “treated” to a pre-release listening to Coldplay’s new album which was rather a shame, as the jukebox in The Shepherds is normally quite good.

The quiz comprised the usual 30 unthemed questions, cost a pound per team and a gallon of beer was given to the winners. The quiz feels a bit basic – no picture round, no jokers and no PA system (the landlady does a very good job of shouting over the raucous horde of drinkers). Our team came in second or third which I attribute purely to the number of questions requiring pure guesswork (“How long do the oldest cows live; 25+ years, 35+ or 45+?”). Cheating also seemed to be rife – why exactly did that guy step outside the pub with two mobile phones and an answer sheet? It’s by no means an outstanding quiz but is probably worth a go once in a while, if you get there early enough to bag a seat.
