Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made you out of...circuits and code? Well, in this guide we will. This guide will show you how to use a Circuit Playground Bluefruit along with a TFT Gizmo to create a digital cyber dreidel.

Instead of spinning, you'll give your cyber dreidel a shake to set it into action. It will replicate the actual spinning top on the TFT Gizmo display. It even plays the catchy little Dreidel Song while the display is "spinning". And then you get a random symbol to represent the dreidel landing on a side.

And...it's all programmed in CircuitPython. Let's get started.
