This game holds the record for the second highest possible maximum score of all time, with 173 points available. This record would not be broken until some 12 years and 3 months later on 19 January 2018 when the maximum score for [[Episode 6745]] was two points more. It is also notable for being one of two games in which a 9 letter word could be made in five different rounds, the other being the episode aforementioned.
