lso known as Canoga or "Batten down the Hatches", this is the old gambling game for as many players as you like. Players throw the dice and choose to shut either the numbers thrown or the sum of the numbers thrown. Each player tries to close all the numbers and thus shut the box!
The game can also provide an excellent introduction to the basics of arithmetic and numbers for younger players!
This Jaques version is beautifully crafted with a mahogany frame and comes with a full deck of playing cards.
The History of Shut the Box is unknown but records of the game can be traced back to 19th Century France. The game did not appear in England, however, until the mid 20th Century.
