Maccabees and Menorahs

A Dreidel Powered Storytelling Game

The Maccabees and Menorahs RPG File


Maccabees and Menorahs is 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.
