Episode 6305 was broadcast on 10 February 2016, as part of Series 74.

David Edgar played Jack Creswell, with Jack Creswell winning 71 – 62. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jennie McAlpine, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Creswell's offering of ENMASKED in Round 13 is a valid word (in fact, it is the darrenic max in this round), and thus the score should have finished 79 – 62; however, this would not have affected the outcome of the game. The max for Round 13 has still been taken to be 8 here for purposes of max calculation.
