[New York Bureau] A Mexican Dreidel

Thought you might enjoy this Mexican dreidel, Ma - the people who made it were so far removed from the original tradition that they took off the Hebrew letters, but it looks like they kept the same rules!

Ah yes, I know this game well. We call it Toma Todo (take it all).

So do the 6 sides translate correctly to the dradel? They are: Take one, take two, take it all, give one, give two, and everybody gives [one].

Alma - I can't believe you know of this! There are only four sides on the dreidel: None (nothing happens), Gimel (Take it all), Hay (take half) and Shin (put in two).
