What do The Corner Boys and The Salopettes have in common?  They have both come second to Wizard twice this season! Whether the comparison is to Manchester City, or Willie Mullins, or Ronnie O’Sullivan, it is clear that team Wizard have the quiz edge over the rest of the field. So far!

On Wednesday night, 7 February, Wizard won the 7th instalment of the NYC quiz series 2023/24, chalking up their 4th success of season with a deserved win over The Corner Boys by a single point. Tsuquizmi shone in 3rd with T.B.M. continuing their consistent run by finishing 4thWizard have now moved to the overall lead with 4 quizzes remaining.

The Quizmaster has been asked to search for Wizard’s kryptonite –a reflection of the fact that the team must have superpowers. Has anyone got Lex Luthor’s phone number?

The quiz will resume on Wednesday, the 21st February, at 8.00pm sharp. See you all there.

The NYC quiz resumed on Wednesday (24 January) with a continuation of a great turnout for the season, bolstered by the participation of a new team Rex (the Quizmaster could not spell Tyranosawrus Tirannasaurus … any other part of the name!).

End of season form continued as the top two at the Christmas quiz occupied the same positions again, with reigning champions Wizard taking the spoils ahead of in-form challengers The Salopettes. T.B.M. were third with The Corner Boys in fourth.

Enchantress maintain their overall lead despite a slip-up but can safely jettison that result when discards come into play.

We welcome back all teams on 7 February next for the next installment, which will commence at (let’s hear it) 8pm sharp!

Quiz update:

The Christmas Quiz dinner was held on Wednesday 13th December with a full dining room and great atmosphere. They say Christmas comes just once a year, but Wizard must wish it could be Christmas every day. Having consumed too much eggnog early on, the current champions dropped seven points in one round, yet were able to reach the top of the tree by the end of the evening – helped clearly by some teams merriment and answering under the influence (Corner Boys!).

Enchantress continued their good form to tie in 2nd place with The Dirty Ruckers, and The Salopettes, followed by T.B.M. and The Corner Boys. The overall leader board shows Enchantress leading the way but keen form students will be eyeing the potential for discards in the future.

We take a break now until the next quiz in 2024 – January 24th at 8pm sharp! The Quizmaster would like to take this opportunity to thank all the teams for their participation and enthusiasm in making it a great quiz season so far, and we wish all teams and their families a very Happy Christmas  and a safe New Year. À la prochaine.

They say it takes ‘two to Tango’, and so Enchantress took to the floor on Wednesday to sashay into a tie-break. After a nail-biter, Tango waltzed away with the win. The Corner Boys continued to pogo up and down in form, while The Dirty Ruckers capped a fine performance in fourth, with last-time-out winners Celtic Boys left looking for a dance partner after swanning into an early lead.

Enchantress, though, move to the top of the Overall Leaderboard, while all the other teams eagerly await the chance to discard their poorer performances.

One view is that, with up to four potential discards, all teams are currently sitting tied on zero points!

 

Next up is the Christmas Dinner Quiz on the 13th December – all teams who are intending on dining should notify the club in advance. Dinner for 7.30pm. Quiz will start at 8.30pm.

Festive cheer and spirit guaranteed!

The second quiz of the season took place on Wednesday evening last (1 November) with a new record 22 teams participating. Appropriately, on the anniversary of the passing of their team mate, T.B.M. won with an excellent final round to take them clear of the pack. Wizard came second, with Harmerang finishing in third place. The Corner Boys were like fish out of water, or at least like boys out of their corner, and came down the field. It was a welcome back for Rudderless and the Chancellors.

As the season warms up, the overall leaderboard (CLICK HERE) is beginning to take shape.

The next quiz takes place on 15 November at 8.00pm sharp! See you all there.
