That one only has 2 letters in common, Money. It needs to have an association AND have 3 letters in common in this particular game. If you are ever unsure of any of the game rules, you can always go back to the original post where they will undoubtedly appear.

summari[s]ation >> conclusion

Answers should be one word, and "booby" has no letters in common with "pitfall." If you move on to the word "trap," it is the very same word that directly preceded "pitfall," and that would make us go in very small circles.

That's my understanding of the game, but I didn't invent it. If you want to challenge my reasons for disqualification, then you can ask Articulate Dreamer. It's his game; he makes all final rulings.

Anyways, thanks for the explanation I didn't knew it has to be one word.
