This 9-tile version is made of Walnut stained wood with a felt playing surface is an ideal pub game. We love this smaller version because while it is smaller in size, it is big on appeal with its brushed nickel handle, latch closure and chain link for lid. Can be played with any number of players and is sure to bring hours of enjoyment and old world charm to your home. Includes dice and instructions in the beautiful WE Games packaging. 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.”
