Play Like a Mathlete!
For 2 to 4 players!
Shut The Box is a high rolling game that relies on the luck of the dice and your skills of basic math. Played in a premium quality wooden box with a dark stained finish and green felt playing field, the numbers 1-12 are printed on the board, each with a lever in front of it that can be flipped to cover it. The object of the game is to cover as many numbers as possible based on your roll of the dice.
Each player, on their turn, throws the dice into the playing field (box) section of the game board. The total of the dice allows you to cover that number or any combination of numbers that add up to the total rolled.
For example, your roll is a 4 and a 5. You can cover any one combination of numbers:
9, 8+1, 7+2, 6+3, 5+4, 1+2+6, 2+3+4, 1+3+5
Once a tile is turned, it cannot be re-used by that player. The player continues to roll and flip levers. The turn ends when the player rolls a number that can’t be played. At that point you add up the numbers still showing, and that is the players score. The player with the lowest score wins!
In an alternate version if the game, the 'Anything Goes' version, you can use addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. So by rolling a 3 and 1 you can cover any one of these combinations:
4, 1+3, 12-8, 11-7, 10-6, 9-3, 8-4, 7-3, 6-2, 5-1, 12-7-1, 12-6-2, 12-5-3, 1x4, 12/3, 8/2

Competitors are selling essentially the same game for double the money.
If you are going to buy a copy of this game on Amazon, this is the version to get.
One suggestion I have it to use a label maker to mark the number tabs because they do not line up correctly. Other than that - a great quick game to play. I have just purchased another one for the other grandchildren.
