How to play this shut the box game?

The history of Shut the Box is not well known, but records show that it has an ancient French connection. The game did not appear in England until mid 20th century. Traditionally, shut the Box was viewed as a gambling dice game played in English pubs. Players are required to put an agreed amount of money into a pool, throw the dice (each player throws the dice) and whoever wins takes all the money from that bet. It has evolved and you can buy different versions nowadays.

Shut the box is a traditional dice game. Take it in turns to spin the spinner (instead of using two dice) and flip down the animal it lands on. The winner is the first player to close or get the animals. Another way is to add numbers on the tiles to create a player's score. A player scores the number of tiles that are left up. Keep on rolling until you are unable to match your roll on the remaining tiles and when all scores are added together the lowest score wins. You can apply different rules as long as you agree to it at the start and any number of players can participate this game.

Cracking Early Years Game!
Thursday, 14 January 2021  | 

Brilliant in its simplicity and design. Keeps the little ones entertained for ages and, as it's also a game of luck, helps teach the art of being a good winner and a good loser!!! It's an all in one board so there's nothing to lose and no danger of a crucial piece going up the hoover!

We got this for Christmas and my boys (2 and 4) don't usually sit and play games - I thought this looked fun and the youngest would enjoy the spinner and slamming down the counters even if he didn't actually play it as a game 🙄

Thry both love it - 4yo likes matching the colours and telling everyone what the animal is and youngest does love to join in so would recommend... very simple but mine have really enjoyed this toy 😊

This is a great game. Simple enough that my toddler can play but fun enough that we adults don't mind playing it over and over again for hours on end!! Highly recommended
