This is a great game; fun, educational, entertaining, and addictive.

The fact that it comes in a durable tin with larger than normal sized dice, easy to read color tiles was a plus.

This is a great tool to teach younger children math skills and for older children to increase their math skills.

I asked for this game for my 38th birthday--believe it or not! Every time I would take my 2 children into the local toy store I would stand and play this game which they had on display. Honestly, it is a great educational game for both my 6 and 9 year old children--you have to add up the dice and then figure out which combination of numbers is best to flip down. It really is fun and very addictive. I knew my kids would love to give it to me since they always saw me play it, and I also knew they would enjoy it and not realize they were having to do math!

My daughter's 4th grade friends had fun competing with each other, trying to "shut the box" or get the lowest score. For my 1st grade son, it was a fun way to reinforce his addition math facts. All the kids liked it. We've purchased a couple more sets for birthday presents for friends. This version (Double Shutter)is a better made product than it's "junior" counterpart. This rendition has nice "shutters" (they are made of something similar to domino tiles),the box is felt lined and everything snaps shut into the tin. The only thing I don't like is the retail price. We've tried to purchase it on sale, which occasionally you can find it for 20 to 25% off at some stores (much better value then).

I bought this game when my wife and I were on vacation near Washington D.C. At first she was a little skeptical, but that afternoon over drinks and snacks, I dragged it out and we started to play. Now, my wife is not much of a game player, but she loved it instantly, and we played for a couple of hours. After that, it became our afternoon "tradition" for the rest of the vacation.
Now, just last week, my grandson started to play it with me (he's 7.5), and he took to it and understood it immediately. We played at least 15 games, and he loves it. So far he's still counting the numbers on the dice, but I'm confident that very soon he'll be adding them at sight. Even my 5 year old granddaughter likes flipping the pieces up and down, though she hasn't quite caught on to the concept of the game yet.
One of the things I like best about it is that set-up is instantaneous--just tilt the box and the pieces flip up ready for a new game. Too, there's nothing to lose except, maybe, the dice, but they're pretty easy to replace anywhere.
This game is very durable, well-made, quiet, quick, and loads of fun.

This is a great thinking game for kids. It can either be played alone where you compete against yourself, or you can be motivated to play rounds and beat someone else!

I love educational games. My house is filled with them. Think Fun games, Blue Orange, Gamewright, Mindware, Learning Resources....you name it. So when I read all the great reviews on this game we just had to buy it. Especially being Blue Orange since we have about 7 Blue Orange games and absolutely love them. I had to come back and read the reviews again in case I had missed something because we found this game absolutely Boring. As far as educational goes, you are only adding small numbers in different ways and it really becomes boring and monotonous after a while. We played about 4 rounds and we were a mixed group ages ranging from 6 through 50 and nobody enjoyed the game. As far as the reviews that it helps children practice math skills I just don't see much practice. If you want an exciting game to practice math skills with the kids I suggest, Sum Swamp , Allowance or Money Bags.

Double Shutter is a math-oriented game, where the player rolls the dice and then turns over 2 rows of "keys" where the numbers turned down (or shut) must equal the sum of the dice. It is a simple math-oriented concept that doesn't feel "boring". The game ends when the player cannot make the sum of the keys equal the dice - or the player turns over all the keys. If multiple people are playing, the one with the lowest total on the remaining keys wins. If it is a solo game, winning is technically when all the keys are turned over.

We first received this toy as a gift for my son (age 6.5 and very good at math) from my brother, who had a friend recommend it since it was "Toy of the Year." I have since given it twice to my son's friends who are celebrating their 7th birthdays. My brother enjoyed it so much that he bought one for himself to keep at his office for stress relief.

Things I like about it:
Can be played alone or with multiple people.
Great for reinforcing that 1+7 = 6+2 = 5+2+1, etc.
Fast games.
Adults love it perhaps even more than kids.
Easy for kids and parents to play together.
Comes in a good case for easy storage.

Things I don't like:
It's addictive!!!

"Double Shutter" is a great version of the classic "Shut-the-Box" game that allows for traditional play or the expanded variation using an extra row of numbers. We play a lot of family games when traveling or camping, so I was thrilled to be provided a this game to review.

This is conveniently packaged in a good sized metal game tin that travels and stores well when closed up. Game play is deceptively simple, but it does involve strategy and a luck as well. This can be played by yourself since technically each round is played until you can't flip down any more numbers, as rolled on the two dice, and then your score is calculated based on the remaining numbers and, if there are multiple players, the box is passed to the next player to begin their turn. The player with the lowest score at the end wins the game. The standard version only has one layer of numbers, 1-9, and this "double" version adds a level of complexity by adding layer of numbers, in descending order, that are unlocked as the numbers in front are turned-down.

This a great game for both younger and older players!

Highly Recommended!
