The game ends when one of the following occurs:
a) The platter of latkes or sufganiot is finished.
b) One of the children becomes whiny (usually upon realizing that pretty soon he/she will have no more chocolate coins remaining).
c) Mom or Dad have some urgent business to attend to.
d) The crack of dawn has arrived.
And the real endgame is the lesson this game has taught. We are overjoyed about the miracles and wonders G‑d did for our ancestors. Throughout Chanukah this is constantly on our mind—even when we are involved with fun and games!
