Overview

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. An easy-to-learn, hard-to-quit game for the whole family.

Disappointed

I was disappointed in the quality of the box and inside tabs. The picture made it look far better and more interesting than it actually is. I had a friend who was anxious to see this game but upon sight decided not to purchase one. I wouldn't have either!

Great game for our whole family

Every age in our family loves this game. All can play together. The smaller size of this game makes it easy to pass around in a group setting. It's very durable because it's made out of wood, but the wood finish is not good. It's dull and rough to the touch. I had expected a professional varnish finish, according to the way it was described.

I bought this for my grandson. He is enjoying it. So is his Mum and Dad. They like to have a games night and this just fits the bill. Easy to use and store. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to play games.

The game is fun and fast which I like. We play whoever gets to 3 winning games out of 10 games say, wins. You can decide. It is fun.

Bought one for my son for Christmas gift last year. We all played and had a fun time. Recently my daughter mentioned it so I ordered the last one for her. Not to mention the box is very attractive and she has it on display in her front room.

Purchased as a gift for my daughter, this simple (but very attractive) little game became the hit of the season! Everyone loved it (it went along to multiple get-togethers)... it really is easy to learn, and highly addictive! Plus, since it is self-contained, it is also great to play during travel. A+!
