Shut the Box is a historic game that originated in the 14th century in England. Fun for the entire family and educational for the young ones. Highly recommended for teachers and home schoolers for its ability to instill basic math skills in a fun and effective way. It is also a great home bar game or adult party game. Object is to end the game with the lowest score. Roll the dice and flip any combination of tiles up to reach the number on that roll. Computer laser burned from wood. Makes for a handsome look.
