Shut the BoxThe beloved game of Shut the Box will keep the whole family having indoor fun. Kids learn math quickly (without even knowing it) by playing this game, and adults all over the globe are addicted to it. Not very complicated, it is exciting non-stop entertainment that livens up any party or gathering…and can be played alone.
Shut the Box is a dice game where the goal is to “shut” off all the numbered “flippers” on a small wooden board, by using any number visible on dice rolled within the box. Use a number from one or the other die, or the dice total. Don’t get “stuck” rolling a number with no available flipper to close off, or you lose. Close off all numbers in the set amount of rolls - you win.
