Our Shut the Box Compendium is a fantastic dice game set, featuring a leather lined Black Walnut frame, poker dice, normal dice, two decks of playing cards and a deck of Happy Families and Snap, plus a comprehensive rulebook with instructions for many games. An excellent introduction to the basics of arithmetic and numbers for younger players, and casual fun for older participants.
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. Jaques were one of the first companies to market Shut the Box in the UK. The game itself is a dice game for one or more players. The object of the game is to cover all the numbers, or 'shut the box', according to throws of the dice. The Jaques version of the game features a leather lined Black Walnut frame and includes dice, poker dice, two packs of Jaques' Playing cards, Happy Families and Snap plus rules for several Shut the Box games. This Shut the Box Compendium is an excellent way to teach numbers and mathematics.
