A dreidl is a small top with which children play during Hanukkah. In Hebrew it is called a Sevivon. 

The dreidl is four-sided with a Hebrew letter painted on each side.

The Hebrew letters, Nun (נ), Gimmel (ג), Heh (ה), Peh (פ) are the first letters of the following sentence Nes Gadol Haya Poh, meaning a great miracle happened here. 

Outside Israel, the fourth letter Peh, is replaced with a shin (ש) for the word Sham, meaning a great miracle happened there. 

How to play

Children (or adults!) sit around the table with the dreidl. Everyone is given a supply of tokens: toothpicks, chocolate gelt (candy in the shape of a gold coin), or jelly beans. Everyone places a tokens in the center of the table. 

The first player spins. According to the letter appearing on top when the dreidl stops, the following occurs: 

Nun (נ). The player neither puts in nor takes out a token. 
Gimmel (ג). The player takes all the tokens. Players then place a token again in the center of the table and play continues. 
Heh (ה). The player takes half of the tokens on the table. 
Peh (פ). The player puts in a token.
