Dreidel is a fun game played on Hannukah, which is a Jewish holiday. Scroll way down to learn how to play! We'll have all sorts of fun Hannukah traditions!
ANYONE MAY JOIN, EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT JEWISH!
Here's What we have in store:
-Play dreidel. Think of it as rping, but putting what your dreidel landed on.
-Gift exchange! @gre1500370 will tell who you should make a gift for. They won't be real-object gifts, more like Scratch gifts!
-Virtual Jelly donuts and Latkes! Order in this studio what type you want, and sauces!
-We're also doing a Hannukah-Song! After the song is picked, you'll record yourself singing it, and then it will all get merged into one project so it sounds like we're all singing together!
-Don't have a dreidel? If you google dreidel, a virtual one will pop up!
username//are you doing gift exchange?// do you want virtual food, if so, do you want donuts or latke (Potato pancake) // Will you be recording a song for the sing-along?
RULES OF THE GAME:
All players sit around the playing area.
The "ante" or tokens (these can be any small objects, such as chocolate gelt, pennies, dried beans, or raisins) are divided equally among all players.
Players take turns spinning the dreidel; the player with the highest spin has first turn. (Nun is highest, then Gimmel, Hey, and Shin.) If there is a tie, the two who tied spin again.
Everyone puts one unit of the ante (penny, nut, etc.) into the pot.
Play moves clockwise.
Each player begins with an equal number of game pieces (usually 10–15).
At the beginning of each round, every participant puts one game piece into the center "pot". Every player puts one in the pot after every turn.
Each player spins the dreidel once during their turn. Depending on which side is facing up when the dreidel stops spinning, the player either gives or takes game pieces from the pot.
If the dreidel lands on a...
NUN - נ
If נ (nun) is facing up, the player does nothing. The person to the left spins.
GIMMEL - ג
You get to take the whole pot!
Everyone, including the spinner, puts another ante unit into the pot, and the person to the left spins.
HEY - ה
The player gets half of the pieces in the pot. (If there are an odd number of pieces in the pot, the player takes the half the pot rounded up to the nearest whole number.)
SHIN - ש
Sorry! You now have to put another unit into the pot.
The game ends as soon as one of the following occurs:
-The sun comes up.
-All the latkes are gone.
-The players decide they have had enough.
-I will tell you what scratcher to make a gift for, and you make something for them (like art, an animation, etc)
