This is how we played in my house.
Nun- get nothing
Gimmel- get all
Hey- get half
Shin- Mess up the game and throw all the dreidels and coins everywhere.December 20, 2011 9:10 pm at 9:10 pm #836459skiaddictMember
Its ridiculous if you play with kids dont expect it to be properly played- its like, the kid pushes the dreidel a bit to pretend it landed on gimel, then the other kids call him cheater and they do the same to be fair, then some kid feels bad for a younger sibling or cousin and convinces everyone to let them have gimmel, if it landed on a wrong letter, it was just a practice, but if the next letter is even worst, then we go by the 1st one.. fun, but not for too long…!December 20, 2011 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #836460ToiParticipant
the amount of shots you down on gimmel seems to be rising in recent years…December 20, 2011 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm #836461

In my house this is how we play:
Nun-get nothing and cry about it
Gimmel-get all the pennies in the middle and everyone else puts in 2 otherwise there would be no coins left in the middle
Shin-everyone puts in 4 pennies
HAVE FUN!!!!December 21, 2011 12:11 am at 12:11 am #836467Flatbush DudeMember
Funny. In my family we play several varieties of dreidel, none of which have been talked about yet.
There’s the game were we have points awarded based on how long you can spin a dreidel for. (I always win)
Then we have a game with dozens of dreidels, and the objective is to get as many as possible to spin before the others stop spinning-get the most simultaneous dreidels to spin. (I always win)
Also, there’s the game were you have to spin the dreidel upside-down. (Due to severe fighting, the winner is usually unknown)
