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.
