Tonight the Hot Spot Quiz, FingerFlickers is back. After a one weeks absence from The Urmston for personal reasons. However I will be back with you, my mad, rowdy, loyal and trusty band of Pub Quizzers, firing on all four cylinders.
Bank Holiday Week
The great news besides the Hot Spot Quiz being back is that being Bank Holiday week, it’s also double chance time tonight on Play Your Cards Right as we have up to six attempts on the big cash big board game. If you’re still not lucky enough to win on it and your the sixth one up we’ll move into the envelope game with #DoubleTheContents as prizes. Instead of £1 it will be £2, instead of £5 it will be £10 and instead of £10 it will be £20!!!
Do you need to borrow a Kindle Tablet?
Remember if you haven’t got a tablet or end up with a flat battery on your phone and need to borrow one of the Kindle Fire Tablets I lend out, it’s first come, first severed. Kindles are our recomended tablet of choice. They are very easy to set up and use and very very reasonable in price, retailing through Amamzon.com at only £49.99. The are light, look smart, and come in a range of colours. The battery life is great as well and will easily see anyone through more then two quiz night without any problems at all.
Play Your Cards Right Rules
The two basic rules are:- Ace’s are classed as the “High” card (the highest value) and you get and win “Nothing For A Pair” of cards that match one after another.
We use ten cards all together. After all the cards have been independently shuffled and cut, we deal nine cards, face down up on the board in three rows of three. These nine cards are followed by a tenth card which will is the next card off the top of the pack, this is the starter card. The “starter card” is the only card you can change if you are not happy with it. You only get to change this card once.
We then work our way across and down the board, card by card with each next card being predicted as being “Higher” or “Lower”. Each prediction has to be correct to proceed onto the next card. If you successfully clear / predict all the cars to the end of the third row, you win the cash jackpot prize that night.
The Prize: – The “Cash Prize” is never less than £50 and never more than £500.
If your unsuccessful clearing the board, you are then out of the game and another ticket is drawn for someone else chance to attempt to clear the board. All in all there are three chances to clear the board in any one night, but each attempt is by a different person unless they have more than one ticket drawn, giving them a second or third chance to clear the board.
The Envelope Game
If whoever is last to attempt to win on Play Your Cards Right also fails to win the Cash Jackpot, they are automatically put through to the Envelope Game. The game is a simple choice of one of three envelopes, X, Y and N. Each of the envelopes has a cash prize within. One has £1, another has £5 and the third has £10. All they have to do to win this consolation prize by choose one of the envelopes, whichever they chose they win!

The usual rules, you’ve got to be in to win and it all kicks off just after 9pm and the questions end just after 11:00pm with Play Your Cards Right straight afterwards – get on down to the Urmston Pub tonight and see you all there.
