The last time Doc and Nina played a game, it ended in Doc’s humiliating loss! Now, he’s out for blood with a game of “Seven Medieval Words (We Should Bring Back Today).” He’ll give Nina seven Old English words and let her guess the definitions. Can Nina get four out of seven correct, or will Doc get his revenge? Plus, Nina schools Doc on the deeply upsetting modern English translation of a modern German word.
