DREIDEL GAME RULES

Each player begins the game with ten coins. The center "pot" also starts with ten coins.

Each player spins the dreidel once during their turn. Depending on which side is facing up when it stops spinning, the player whose turn it is gives or takes coins from the pot:

  1. If the dreidel falls on נ‎ (nun), the player does nothing.
  2. If the dreidel falls on ג‎ (gimel), the player gets all the coins in the pot. Every player then has to place one coin in the "pot".
  3. If the dreidel falls on ה‎ (hey), the player gets half of the coins in the pot. (If there is an odd amount of coins in the pot, the player takes the half the pot rounded up to the nearest number).
  4. If the dreidel falls on ש‎ (shin), the player loses two coins and places them in the pot.

If at any time a player is out of pieces, less than zero, they are "out".

THE HISTORY OF THE DREIDEL

As tradition has it, the dreidel game was originated by Jews who were studying the Torah in caves as they hid from the Greeks under Antiochus IV. The Jews in that era were banned from studying the Torah. However, that did not deter the Jews from studying. Whenever they heard the Greeks approaching, they would put away the Torah scrolls, and replace it with dreidels, as if they were playing the dreidel game the whole time.
