Episode 6716 was broadcast on 23 November 2017, as part of Series 77.

Bradley Horrocks played Peter Buckley, with Bradley Horrocks winning 113 – 57. The Dictionary Corner guest was Dr Linda Papadopoulos, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode was billed as Rachel Riley's 2,000th appearance as arithmetician, with this count presumably excluding appearances on the 8 out of 10 Cats Mash-ups. Nick Hewer congratulated her on this at the beginning of the show, also informing her that she had presided over more than 7,000 numbers games and placed almost 190,000 letters tiles on the board during her career so far. At the end of the programme, Hewer then presented a celebratory bouquet and cake to Riley.
