Product Description

Product Description

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

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.

I purchased this game to play for my Pirate-themed family reunion. I was uncertain as to how "fun" this would be when I first took it out of the box, but once I started to play, it was quite fun. I have a two-year-old son who likes to call out the numbers and as he gets older, it will assist him in counting as well. It's a simple game that can be played by a group of people or just by one. I like the fact that you can keep it out and anyone passing by can give it a go. It's a quick game for some immediate gratification. Once you play it a while, you can try new strategies to "Shut the Box." The construction of the box is stellar and it looks like a "real" seaworthy item! This Pirate Wench gives it a hearty Arr! and two thumbs up!

Quality of game is more than I had expected! I played this game frequently during my extended visits to Thailand! I have always wanted one and finally made the purchase when I spotted the game on your site! Quite enjoyable! The whole family enjoys the game! No regrets purchasing this game!

This game is both fun and educational. It's pretty enough to keep on the coffee table - and it gets opened quite often by any of the parents/kids. It has even gone into school for "rainy day" recess - the teachers love it becuase it does use those addition math facts.

If there is any "family" on your Christmas list - consider this as a gift that will be enjoyed indefinitely!

My major complant is the case the inside is decent. The case looks nice in the pictures, but up close it is cheap plastic and the trim pieces fit poorly. We thought the wood appearing case would look nice if were setting out. Save your money and get one of less expensive versions. They will be just as much fun to play.

I was introduced to this game this past weekend at a party. The adults played while sipping cocktails. It was a lot of fun. I was so happy to have been given my own as a gift. Don't underestimate the entertainment value of having this at an adult party - the rounds are quick and easy, making for a fast paced game.

I was pleased with the size of this product because it is the same size as the one I've played before, BUT... luckily I took it out of the box to inspect it before giving it as a gift. The wood on the inside and outside of the wooden box had mildew on it as if this item had been in damp storage. I had to clean it up good and put baking soda inside to try to get rid of the mildew smell. Pleased with the item as a whole, but had to go with 1 star due to the condition of the item. I'm hoping I can get it in good enough shape to still give it as a gift, but am overall disappointed that I have to clean it up first.

This gift has been on my sisters "wish list" for years. Finally this year I got it for her. The whole family sat for hours passing this box around playing and trying to outdo the next person. It's great for kids of all ages. I was surprised that the box was not heavier, but when it was opened, saw that it was a light weight wooden box. Very well crafted and great to put on display. This has become a family favorite.
