Staccabees is a wonderful dreidel game that is fun for all families, Jewish or not. While Staccabees is based on a dreidel, which is a traditional Hanukkah game, there are many other variations of the dreidel top from many different cultures. In fact, the Greek have their own version of the Dreidel game, called Parta Ola. It is a spinning top game played during the Christmas and New Years Holidays, even Easter. No matter your religion or culture, Staccabees is a fun game for any family. The all natural wooden game pieces and overall simplicity make this game special. Taking away the plastic, the batteries, and the noise, we can truly see what a family game night is about. It’s about FAMILY TIME and this game is a great one to add in to your collection.
A stack of cubes, compare to the traditional “pot”, grows and shrinks as the players take their turns. On the Dreidel is: נ (Nun), ג (Gimel), ה (Hei), ש (Shin), which are Hebrew letters. Together these letters form a mnemonic for the rules of the game. In Yiddish, they translate to “nothing”, “all”, “half”, and “put”. The object of the game is to be the first player to balance all of your cubes on the group’s shared stack.
The game comes in a super convenient cotton bag, great for travel and easy to store. The game is for 2-6 players, age 6 and up. It’s a quick game that takes about 20-30 min to play, perfect for busy families. We all know how long a game of Monopoly can take! Now you have no excuse for game night once a week.
