All you need to play Rapa is a dice (this particular one, with a letter on each side) and a handful of dry beans, coins, pebbles or whatever you find appropriate. each player contributes with a bean to start the game and spins the dice. The way the dice falls determines the fate of thge players. The letter T means "Take" and the player takes away one bean. The letter P requires the player to "Place" another bean on the table. The D stands for "Leave" (Deixa in POrtuguese) and everything stays the same. R means Rapa (clean up) and the player takes all the beans that are left on the table.
Rapa is a traditional Portuguese game that some believe goes back to the traditional Jewish "dreidel". The rapa dice sold at A Vda Portuguesa is handmade in the Barcelos region.
