Product Description

Shut-the-Box is a traditional game of counting, addition, and probability. Dating back to the 18th century, this game was enjoyed by Norman fishermen after a long day at sea. 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." Can be played with any number of players. It is sure to bring the old century charm to your home!
