CoLei Summer Special, was an extra event held in 2010, to celebrate the organiser Jeff Clayton's milestone birthday. It took place on Saturday 31 July at The Stoneycroft Hotel in Leicester. Rather than the usual system of attendees all competing against each other, it was a tournament of exhibition matches in front of an audience. It was won by Richard Priest, who beat Kirk Bevins in the final 101 – 98.

12 people attended, with 8 competing in the Countdown tournament. This was intercut with other games, such as Des chiffres et des lettres and Fifteen-to-One.
