From the Manufacturer
Shut-the-Box Signature Edition from Front Porch Classics is a top-quality version of the English sailors' game. This fast-paced game is fun and addictive and can be enjoyed by any number of players. Enclosed in a decorative, solid wood box, the game comes with handmade wooden tiles and dice. Game play is deceptively simple. Roll the dice, count your points and then flip down the tiles that match your roll. But shutting the box--laying down all the tiles--is harder than it seems. We bet you can't play just one game. Shut-the-Box has received a Gold Seal Award and a Platinum Award from the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio. For 1 or more players age 8 and over. Front Porch Classics offers "unplugged family entertainment." We're dedicated to bringing people together through play. Our games are designed to engage friends and the whole family around the coffee table, laughing, sharing and building memories. We build our core values into every toy and game we sell: rich storytelling, elegant design, ageless appeal and limitless play.
Entertain yourself with this dice game called Shut the Box. This game is centuries old that has been played and loved by sailors and fishermen, and now you can enjoy it too in your very own home. Simply roll the dice and flip over any combinations of tiles that match the numbers you rolled. Then continue rolling until the numbers you roll no longer match the tiles - this is the end of your turn. If the tiles add up to six or less, only roll one die. You can figure out your score by reading left to right - the lowest score wins the game. This game is fun to play with friends but can also be enjoyed by only two people. Everything you need is included in the mahogany finish box and has an attractive look even while being stored. 14" L x 10-1/2" W x 4-1/2" H
