The wonderful dreidel (Sevivon) game! 

Learn how to play and understand the meaning behind the dreidel symbols.

Each player starts off with an equal number of coins, nuts, M&Ms, stones or whatever you wish to use.

Each player takes turns spinning the dreidel. If it lands on:

Nun - the player receives nothing, next player spins.

Hey - the player takes half of the pot.

Gimmel - the player takes the entire pot.

Shin - the player puts one piece into the pot.

Each time the pot is emptied out, each player puts in a piece (coin, nut, candy) and the game continues.
