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!
This Jaques version of Shut the box has 12 numbers, more than is typical and a light coloured wooden frame.
The game can also provide an excellent introduction to the basics of arithmetic and numbers for younger players!
