Product Description

Entertain yourself with this classic style 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 a group of friends but can also be enjoyed with only two people. Everything you need is included in the classic style mahogany finish box and has an attractive look even while being stored in a business office or study, and even your elegant home living room. 8" L x 6" W x 3" H

Such a fun game......for the whole family to play.

This is a faux-antique box with very cheap parts that fall apart pretty quickly.

I really like this game, but I got a damaged product. Doesn't prevent it from being played, but does take away from the aesthetic value. I'm reviewing it if it were not damaged.

Great fun for those who like dice, skill and chance. The box makes it handy to carry around - a good "front porch game" as they advertise. The box was not sturdy enough though, as it started to separate at the seams. It is holding together so far, though.

Great game but quality leaves something to be desired. Wood box was very poorly put together with blotches of wood putty in corners. Numbers flimsy and difficult to move. I would recommend finding a different manufacturer of this great game as it is not unique to them.

The game itself is great fun, but this particular presentation is awful. This is a faux-antique box with very cheap parts that fall apart pretty quickly. The dowel holding the tiles is bendy and spins freely: often you will accidentally flip down 3 or 4 tiles at once instead of just the one you wanted. The box is much deeper than others and can be difficult to see into to read the dice, especially when they're against the side. This also means it is not really possible for more than one or two people to watch. The chain tends to get caught up in the tiles when closing. The label on the inside of the lid is glued in and wrinkled. Overall it is a cheaply made game and there seem to be much better choices available for the same price.

My family and I love this game! It is so simple, yet so much fun to play. We put away the electronics and get this out as often as we can.

This is a great game for young people to play and do math at the same time. My grandchildren really enjoy it.

I used to have this same exact toy and loved "Shut the Box" as a child. It is the same great quality but MUCH smaller that I hoped for. The measurements of the box would have been nice to know prior to purchase. It is only 6 inches by 8 inches, and a couple of inches deep. I purchased two and will keep them anyway due to the fun and quality of the toy.

Our original purchase was so much fun. We were playing it while the man fixing our air conditioner asked what we were playing. He got all excited about it, so we bought him one at a great price and shipped it right to his house. Looks like our Christmas shopping is going to be simple this year! It's all chance and a lot of fun. Treat yourself.
