Thursday 27th July 2017 marked the second edition of #PaladoneGamesNight this time with a Disney Pub Quiz! The event was held in Manchester at a quirky bar called The Zombie Shack, hidden atop a bamboo staircase adorned with totems and tiki torches. Unfortunately, a bar that describes itself as “hidden” causes some issues for us trying to give directions so we thought a 5m high Paladone flag might do the trick!
As people arrived they were given an elaborate Disney themed welcome cocktail, in true Zombie Shack spirit, called ‘Ding Dong Dory is Dead’ – a mixture of sloe vodka, port, and blue curaçao (and some mixers too!). We also had a hot buffet prepared with nothing but veggie treats – our compliments to the chef!
Once everyone had arrived everyone they sorted themselves into teams, have your say on who had the best name:
The quiz was run by Mark from Quiz Actually, a Brighton based quiz company who do amazing interactive quizzes, and made us a brilliant bespoke Disney themed quiz. Each round had a unique element, such as:
- Music round – A mixture of name that song/film from the music, and also name that song from a silent clip of it’s feature in the movie.
- Screen Test: The Observation Round – There was a clip from Who Killed Roger Rabbit, and teams had to remember as much about it as possible ahead of infuriatingly detailed questions were asked after the clip
- It begins with ‘Walt Disney’ – The first letter of each answer spells out Walt Disney.
There was also a solo round where teams were torn apart and everyone was in it for themselves. For this round we brought back an old classic – The Generation Game! 17 Paladone Disney products passed along the conveyor belt on the screen and whomever remembered the most won all the loot!
A staple for all Quiz Actually quizzes is for 2nd to last to win a prize, because anyone can finish last but it takes real skill to finish second to last!
It was a close contest from start to finish, with all teams showing a plethora of Disney knowledge. However there was a clear winner in the end..
|#1||The Quizzy Princesses (& King)||103|
|#7||The Minnie Skirts||90|
Congratulations The Quizzy Princesses (& King)! with an outstanding score of 103/120. Walt Quizney beat out Experiment 626 in a tie breaker for 3rd place and the Minnie Skirts expertly manouvered their way to a 2nd to last finish.
The night carried on into the early hours as our guests wandered off one by one struggling to carry their hauls.
Thanks everyone for coming! We can’t wait for the next one.
