How to play Shut the Box:

The winner is the player with the lowest score at the end of a round.

Each player rolls the dice until they can no longer flip up any numbers.

You can flip up any combination of tiles which equals your roll.

For Example:

  • If you roll a 6 you can flip up the following tile combinations
    • 6
    • 5 & 1
    • 4 & 2

Once you can no longer flip any tiles your turn is over.

Your score is determined by adding up the tiles still showing

The winner is the person with the lowest total score.

As you become more familiar with the game you will notice certain strategies as which tiles to flip and which tiles to save

Shut the Box is not just a game of luck, but a game of strategy. It also just so happens to be a game you can have fun playing with your kids.

As an added bonus they will be "tricked" into learning addition since they cannot win without adding properly.

Q: How long does it take for you to ship an order?
A: This is a tricky one as it really depends upon what you order. Some puzzles (such as mazes) take longer to make than a cipher wheel or lobby puzzle. Often times I can have an order ready to ship within 5 business days. Other factors such as custom requests/engraving will increase lead time.
