Shut-the-Box is a traditional game of counting, addition, and probability that dates back to the 18th century when the game was enjoyed by Norman fishermen after a long day at sea. Today the game is played with family, used in classrooms for teaching addition and probability, and is even a betting game played in pubs all over Europe! 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." This four-sided version is made of medium stained wood with a felt playing surface. It features 10 wooden number tiles rather than the typical nine numbers of other versions, bringing more numerical combinations into play. Can be played with any number of players, but the 4-sided board makes it ideal for four players. Sure to bring hours of enjoyment and old world charm to your home. Includes eight dice (4-different colors) and instructions in the beautiful WE Games packaging.

5Great for math skillsDec 10, 2012
By NJNurse
Shut the box is a good game for all ages. The great thing about this one is that up to four people can play at one time. Helps with math skills for beginners, yet sophisticated enough for adults, think strategy. Often with a single game, players lose interest, this game ensures that interest is maintained. Product was shipped and arrived before stated time.

5A lot of Family funJan 06, 2014
By DIY 1 "A6Intruder"
I was glad I bought this game. My son, came in from Nashville, TN on Christmas eve and the day after Christmas my wife son and I sat at the kitchen table after dinner and played Shut the Box for 2 hours. We each came close with one number left to Shut the Box, but the dice didn't hit in our favor during our turns. We played 5 rounds each time and just had a lot of fun. My youngest son came by a bit later in the week and we got him into it, needless to say we were laughing ourselves silly over our various commments when the dice didn't come our way. I would say this is one of the best family board games out there today, it's fast and it's fun for the kids, it does sharppens yours and their math skills and the best way to use the numbers you throw when it's your turn. Family fun. I would say give it a try, get the kids in on it. Enjoy some great family time together.

I would recommend this game. It is made well and I like it having four sides. I can even play by myself when no one is here to play it with me. Will help young ones with math skills

By joan bartlett
I use this product for cognitively impaired adults with pyschiatric illnesses. This helps my clients in the areas of focus, concentration, decision making and math skills. I have a hard time finding games for cognitively impaired adult males to do that is age appropriate and fun to do.
