Equipment / Ingredients
Step 1: The Rules
To start each player has a shot of alcohol (beer wine whatever). Players take a turns spinning the Dreidel, here are the rules based upon the spin.
I could have made this one step but the images messed me up if I can figure it out I will fix it.
Step 2: Nun - Nun for You This Turn.
Nun – player gets a pass, he does not drink.
Step 3: Shin - It's a Shin to Drink Alone.
Shin – player drinks alone.
Step 4: Hay Buddy We Both Drink
Hay – player and the player on his right both drink.
Step 5: Gimmel "Oy Vey!"
Gimmel – everyone must slap themselves on the forehead and yell “Oy vey!” the last player to slap his head has to drink 2 drinks. This gets a little tough for people not of the tribe being able to discern Gimmel from Nun upside down or right-side up after a few drinks. Note the slight difference
Some added fun
Faking a Gimmel – on any players spin you can fake a Gimmel by bringing your hand close to your forehead, but cannot touch your head or call out “Oy vey!”. Any players who touches their forehead or says “Oy vey!” has to drink.
If you cannot spin the Dreidel after 3 tries you are out of the game. If you spin it off the table you drink, so that drunken people don’t have to crawl around on the floor looking for a Dreidel.
