OK, it is Hanukkah again
(or Chanukah depending how you like to spell it)
so it is time to spin the dreidel
and win GEEK GOLD
bag
The traditional game to play on these eight crazy nights is Dreidel. But this year I am going to add a new rule with an Operation: Maccabee "spin" on it.

 


Yes we will be killing nazis with dreidels this year!

How to play (for this thread's purposes):

1) For each post there will be one Gelt (Geek Gold), supplied by me, put into the pot.
2) For each post to this thread I will spin the dreidel for you. (Only one spin per person per day)
3) If a Gimel is spun you win all the Geek Gold (1 if it is the first post)
4) If a Hei is spun you win half of the Geek Gold (Round down so if there is 5 in the pot you will only win 2)
5) If a Nun is spun you win nothing and the Geek gold carries over to the next post. So the pot can grow bigger.
6) If a Shin is spun you win nothing but 1 additional Geek Gold will go into the pot and carry over to the next post.
7) Whenever the pot reaches zero it will reset to one Geek Gold.
8) The Operation: Maccabee "spin": I have enabled Public Dice Rolls so on your post click "add a roll" and select d8. If you get an 8 then you killed all the nazis and win 10 more geek gold no matter what you spin.

In the spirit of the giving season I will be supplying the Geek Gold so this is FREE for everyone to participate and enjoy for the next 8 days or until I run out of Geek Gold.
Please be patient with me on the spins. I don't sit in front of my computer 24 hours a day so I may have to play catch up sometimes.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

I'll give it a try.

I bought my copy of Operation: Maccabee at Aero Hobbies a while back, probably when it first came out! I took the game to work recently to show all of my coworkers, which is significant because I work in the board game division of a large toy company. Even though it's not suitable for the mass market, everyone at work thought it was pretty innovative, and these are people who have been designing games for a long time.

Edit: I added my roll to the first post. Not sure if that was right or not.

I publish 4 different dreidel games, I sure hope so.

I spin an actual dreidel on my end and you "add a dice roll" on your side for the bonus. I chose a d8 for the eight nights of Hanukkah.
