Gaelic language panel game. Fairly standard word-based rounds: complete the proverb, define the neologism, and a Call My Bluff variant using two words with one definition each, one of which is completely made up. The final round is the most inventive: the phonetic spellings of sentences from a mid-20th century English-Gaelic phrasebook are displayed on screen, and the teams have to work out both the Gaelic phrase and the original English phrase it was meant to be a translation of.
