A classic game for any number of players of any age, Shut the Box is great for helping practice mental arithmatic and quick-thinking!
This set has wooden number flaps which sit in a row in the sturdy card box. Also included is a pair of wooden dice and a paper score pad. A simple but addictive game for children and adults aged 6 years and upwards.
How to play? Pop all the numbers (1-9) up to open the boxes. Roll the 2 dice and "shut" the number boxes that equal the total of the dice roll. For example, a roll totaling 5 allows the player to shut either 1 and 4, 2 and 3, or just 5.
The player then rolls the dice again, aiming to shut as many numbers as possible. This continues until the player cannot shut any available numbers, at which point they score one point per number uncovered.
If the player manages to cover all the numbers in the game, they have "Shut the Box"! Otherwise play passes to the next player, and after everyone takes a turn the lowest score wins.
Recommended for ages 6 years and upwards.
