Shut-the-Box is a traditional English pub game of dice and numbers. Works equally great as a drinking game or a family board game!

This particular box is a truly unique vintage design featuring the Bull Tavern logo. It is extra large size (13.5 x 11 x 3.25") with a green felt lining inside. Tiles are authentic wood with ivory facade. On the outside, the wood is lacquered to preserve it and give it an attractive shine. Makes a great-looking addition to any home.

Game Instructions:

In this game you get one point for every number covered. How do you cover a number? By rolling the dice and "covering" certain numbers that equal the total of the roll. Example: if your roll totals to 6 you can cover the numbers 1 and 5, 2 and 4, or just 6. Continue to roll until you can't cover anymore numbers, then it's the next player's turn. Whoever covers the most numbers wins. There are different versions to play this game as well, but all of them require a bit of arithmetic skills and some risk management... are you up for the challenge?
