Shut the Box is a fantastic dice game, featuring a baize lined hardwood frame plus comprehensive rule book.

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 baize-lined, polished hardwood frame and includes dice and full Shut the Box game rules. This game is an excellent way to teach numbers and mathematics.

Tray: Approximately 30cm x 17.5cm x 3cm
Dice: 1.5cm x 1.5cm x 1.5cm

Our delivery covers the whole of the UK including Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and Channel Islands but sadly we cannot offer delivery to Republic of Ireland or BFPO addresses. International shipping is no longer available.

Our Croquet, Chelsea Skittles & Luxury Badminton sets are made in the UK to order so they take a little bit longer to get that high quality finish you expect from Jaques. They currently have a lead time of up to 2 weeks for delivery.
