Step 4: Rules of the Game
2. Each player gets the same amount of Hannukah gelt (gelt: Yiddish for money). You can use anything for gelt including coins, candy, etc... I have traditionally used chocolate coins as my Chanukah gelt.
3. At the beginning of each round, everyone puts one piece of gelt into the pot in the middle of the circle. When ever the pot empties through out the game everyone will put other piece of gelt into the pot.
4. Go around the circle taking turns. When it is your turn, spin the dreidel. The letter the dreidel lands on determines the players move.
Nun = player does nothing
Gimel = player takes the pot
Hay = player takes half the pot
Shin = player puts a piece of gelt into the pot
5. You are out when you have no pieces in the pot. You win when you have the entire pot.
