HOW TO PLAY DREIDEL
Each player places some dollars, quarters, dimes, (or would you
believe pennies, candies, raisins, or even nuts) into a kitty. Each player
takes a turn spinning the dreidel. When only one object is left
in the kitty, each player adds another object into the kitty. When a player
has all the objects, (ie. everyone else is broke), that person wins!
"Nun" means 'nisht'
You win nothing, you lose nothing.
"Gimel" means 'gantz'
You take the whole kitty, leaving 1 object, while everyone else puts
in 1 object.
"Hay" means 'halb'
You win half of what's in the kitty plus one if there is an odd number.
"Shin" (or in Israel - "Pay")
means 'shtel' or put in.
You lose, and must put one object into the kitty.
For those of you who don't want to play with objects, the game may
be played with "Points." On a piece of paper, keep track of how many
points you get! Who ever reaches 100 points first wins!
