  • This wooden dreidel brings back a sense of Holiday and tradition to any celebration.
  • Play year-round with special games around the winter holidays. Perfect for traditional Hanukkah, Christmas, or other holiday celebrations to use the dreidel and game to teach children about the history, cultural origins and significance of the popular children's game.
  • The dreidel is engraved with custom inscriptions providing the Hebrew character, the phonetic Hebrew pronunciation and a small English hint on the rule of play for that side.
  • The dreidel is a two part wood turning with laser engraved game play symbols and instructions.
  • Instructions:
    • Players start with 10-20 playing pieces. We use coins, raisins, chocolates, coins, candies, or even pebbles.
    • Each player adds a piece to the center pot and play begins.
    • Each player spins the dreidel once during their turn. Depending on which player side is facing up when it stops spinning, they give or take game pieces from the pot:
    • a) If נ (nun) is facing up, the player does nothing.
    • b) If ג (gimel) is facing up, the player gets everything in the pot.
    • c) If ה (hey) is facing up, the player gets half of the pieces in the pot. (Rounded up if there are an odd number.)
    • d) If ש (shin) is facing up, the player adds one or 3 pieces to the pot- this should be decided before the game begins.
    • If a player runs out of pieces they are out. (Of course you can always ask for a loan)
  • Note- The engraving goes from right to left as you turn the dreidel to follow convention of the Hebrew language.
  • Dimensions: 1" wide and 2.5" high.
