Round 15: T R A D E A C T T

Jeremy buzzes on 2.5 seconds to say RETRACTED which is incorrect.
Adam does not buzz.
The answer, correctly answered by Rachel (thanks to Pasha being there. :P ), was ATTRACTED.
Final Score: 85–70 (max 145)

Well, his last two games might've been his toughest of his run, but Adam makes it 8 wins out of 8, although he did miss on a rarity of getting all 8 conundrums on an octorun (although, he did actually get 8, if you include the 2nd one he got on his debut).

So, his total of 732 points (not including the bonus 10 from his debut) currently puts him at #2 on the leaderboard behind James Burley.

Let's see if he's still there by the end of the series... ;) :) :D
