We bought the Melissa & Doug version of "Shut-the-Box" after playing the game at a recent family reunion. This is a great game for almost any age and can include almost any number of players. The one at my family reunion was higher quality, but likely was also more expensive. Here are my observations:

Game Play (Simplified) -
* Players roll two dice (at first) and flip down numbers that equal the sum of the total rolled
* Some rule variants allow the use of only one die after 7, 8, & 9 are flipped down
* Each player continues until he can no longer flip down a tile and then adds up the total of the remaining numbers
* The box passes to the next player and the winner is the one with the lowest score (unless someone "shuts the box" and automatically win by successfully flipping all of the numbers down)

This version includes -
* A Good Looking Game Box; this has an intentionally rustic appearance that is only marginally marred by the obviously plastic window, with the metal hinges and latch being a nice touch
* Dice Bag and Dice; the bag is nice and has a leather(et?) drawstring, but the dice are very rustic appearing and we all have some concern about how random they are (seems to roll 2s a lot) - we have replaced these with standard dice
* Instruction Booklet; contains basic and variant rules

This is a very fun party game and even younger players can quickly learn to play.

A fun game while waiting for others to arrive, but the quality it shoddy in parts and quality control missed the upside down 9.

After seeing a shut the box game at my friend's house, I purchased this Melissa & Doug version for my son's 6th birthday. We love playing this game; he thoroughly enjoys it and asks to play it. We have only had it for a few weeks, but it seems like it will be durable enough. This a great coffee table game for adults, as well as beginning "adders"!

Extremely poor craftsmanship. Like someone slapped some glue and wood together on an assembly line and there was no quality control. Cheap materials went into the product and it shows. The numbers do not move independently and the bar that holds the numbers did not fit.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Kay M on January 3, 2012
Format: Toy
The game itself is fun. But the quality is poor. When the number 8 is turned down the 9 also turns down on its own and vice versa. The cloth in the bottom of the box is not cut straight and ragged edges are glued up onto the inside of the box. Since it was sealed in plastic wrap it was not opened before it was given as a gift. Talk about embarassing! Had I known about the poor quality I would have never given it as a gift, I would have returned it and purchased one from a different manufacturer.

Ordered this for xmas, had to return it. The number tiles did not move freely, the holes that the rod passes through were to small. So when I flipped one number 2 other tiles moved. I tried working the tiles for about 20 minutes but three tiles stayed stuck to the rod.

I had seen this game in a local toy shop. When I asked the owner about it, he said he wasn't sure how to play it, but it it sold well and he couldn't recall anyone returning it. My daughter loves games, so I'm always on the look out for fun games we will all enjoy. I'm so glad I took a chance and purchased this game.
This is a simply, yet fun game. You can come up with different ways to determine who wins. This has quickly become a family favorite, my husband and I love it as much as our 7 year old daughter. You can play alone or with several players. We take it along with us to family gatherings, to outdoor events to play while we are waiting for the show to begin or when we go out to eat to play while we are waiting for our table and/or food. As with all Melissa and Doug products the quality is great.

I received this item thinking I was getting a heirloom quality product, I did not. The box was poorly made, the dice were of very poor quality and the window was basically a cut piece of plastic stuck in and not even fitted well. The number 5,6,7,8 and 9 all stuck and came down together and were very hard to separate and make work on their own. I will be returning this item.
