Maccabees and Menorahs

A collaborative game where 2-5 players retell the story of Hanukkah. One person will be the Nagid (leader) who guides the group through the story. The other players will take on the roles of the Maccabees. When an outcome is uncertain, players spin the dreidel to find out what happens.

This game is designed to be played over eight short (15 minute) sessions, perhaps after lighting the menorah each night. You could also play it in one sitting.

Excerpt: 

Each session, the Nagid starts by describing an opening scene that involves the characters. Then, the players narrates their characters’ actions. If a character takes a risky action, their player spins a dreidel to see if it succeeds. The Nagid narrates the results.

Gimel – a complete success
Hey – a success, but at a cost
Nun – a failure, try a different approach
Shin – a terrible failure, things get worse
