Product Description

Product Description

Ideal Shut the Box is a dice rolling game that teaches probability, chance and basic math! Roll the dice to ''cover up'' the numbers on the board. Using addition, subtraction, multiplication or division, get your numbers to total 1 through 12. Cover up the numbers until there are no more possibilities. Add the remaining numbers for your score, then it’s your opponents turn. The player with the lowest score wins! This premium edition of the game is made out of wood with a dark stained finish and green felt playing field and includes number cover pegs, dice and instructions. Recommended for children 5 years of age and older.

A recent visit to Valley Forge National Park prompted me to purchase this vintage toy for my children. A woman reenactor was demonstrating some of the games played by colonial children and my kids had a good time playing it that day. Shut the Box is definitely educational as it was used to teach children to count. There are several variations to the game which can be found online to keep it interesting. The toy is fun, very durable, and has a nice antique look to it. It is also a very ideal game for travel. I would recommend this for any age.

I ordered 3 of these for my classroom. They are great for building math fluency and the kids love to play! The flaps that are supposed to cover the number you choose we're all off center so badly that I had to use a sharpie to make the game playable. I just wrote the number right in the flap's underside. We start with them all up and close them as we use them. I salvaged it, but they should not have been so misaligned.

This is the right price for this game.

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.

In service,

Who ever heard of a game called Shut the Box that didn't have a lid? I constructed one myself for the game sent by Amazon and made by Ideal toy. Then I had to make adjustments to the movable components and change the game so that my home-made lid would close at the proper time. Last, the component for the number SEVEN was drilled badly. I still haven't learned how to fix that. I made a better version of this game with a cigar box, dowel rods, and dominoes.

Our neighbor brought this game over to my kids after one broke his arm. They are 11 and they absolutely loved playing! What I like most about it, is the fact that it is so fast-paced. We can play again and again -- which is important for kids that haven't mastered the art of being a gracious loser yet. :) Because it was apparent that we were playing multiple rounds, winning or losing didn't really matter. We could all just have fun with the playing part. We had to return her game, so we bought one of our own!

This game is great for adults and kids. My boys are 9, 8, and 5. This is a great game to help with their math and they don't even realize it. My youngest was 4 at the time I bought the game. If you ask him what it two plus two he can not answer you, but he can play this game and do the math all on his own. It's a great family game, and it's fun for adults also.

Since the cardborad box is what keeps pieces together it would be nice if the box was a little heavier and the end flaps a little bigger. I would not order this again but spend more money for the game with lids.

My 5 year old (kindergarten) grandson and I play this during breakfast. He uses addition, subtraction and multiplication skills to turn over the numbers. Division will be next.

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.
