National Geographic Shut the Box Game
National Geographic Shut the Box Game
(Based on 33 reviews)
Category: Home & Garden/Historic Collectibles
After their sails were still for the night, Norman mariners would get out their dice and play Shut-the-Box. The simple and addictive game made its way around the world as trade increased among Europe, Africa, and China, and it remains especially popular in the U.K. today. Roll the dice and lay down any combination of tiles to match your roll. Keep rolling until you can't match your roll on the remaining tiles. Low score wins; lay down all the tiles and you've shut the box. Easy to learn and hard to stop playing, this handsome antiqued edition features an Old World look, wooden box, and wooden dice and tiles.

SPAD S.Xlll Model Plane
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Home & Garden/Historic Collectibles

World War I flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker was the most celebrated aviator of his time. Our 1/24-scale model of Rickenbacker’s SPAD S.XIII, in which he flew 20 of his confirmed 26 victories, is handcrafted of Philippine hardwood and hand-painted with the patriotic markings of the 94th Aero Squadron. As the first American squadron to enter World War I, the 94th Fighter Squadron chose as their insignia a ring with Uncle Sam’s red, white, and blue hat to symbolize their willingness to “throw their hat in the ring” and enter the fighting in France.
