This gorgeous Shut the Box game is finely crafted of solid maple wood with great attention paid to quality and durability. Made from American hardwood lumber that is certified eco friendly by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). A light finish is applied over the natural wood for an ultra smooth surface. Billiard felt lines the playing surface for softer dice rolls.
This version features 12 number tiles rather than the typical 9 numbers of other versions, bringing more numerical combinations into play. Roll the dice and lay down any numerical combination of tiles that match your roll. Just keep on rolling until you can no longer match your roll on the remaining tiles. The lowest score wins the game. If you lay down all the tiles, then you've "shut the box."
Shut the Box is a traditional game of counting, addition, and probability that dates back to the 18th century when it was enjoyed by Norman fishermen after a long day at sea. Today it is a betting game played in pubs all over Europe and is utilized in classrooms throughout the USA for teaching addition and probability. Can be played with any number of players.
