Our version of this 18th century game comes in a deluxe wooden box with an Old World look - Shut-the-Box is a traditional game of dice, chance, and probability and is betting game played in pubs all over Europe. This improved wood version with a felt playing surface has 12 numbers, rather than the typical 9 numbers of other versions, bringing more numerical combinations into play. 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."
