Shut the box is a traditional English Pub pastime that is originally a gambling dice game. Just like any other gambling game, the players agreed to pay the “stake” before the game starts and the winner takes the “stake” at the end of a round. Shut the box evolved now more of a pastime than a gambling game.
Shut the box is played with multiple players, about 2-4, although one can play this game. The Shut the box game involves a wooden tray and 2 dice. The tray has the numbers 1 – 9 laid in a row each with hinges or sliding cover, to make it easy to cover the numbers.
To start the game, uncover all the numbers. Then, the first player rolls the dice, adds the numbers that comes up and cover the numbers in the tray. Example, if the dice rolls a 2 and a 6, the sum is 8. You may choose to cover the number 8 in the tray or a combination of numbers that adds to 8, like 6 and 2. The first player keeps rolling the dice, sums it up and cover the remaining numbers in the tray until all the numbers are covered.
If first player failed to cover all the numbers, the remaining numbers will then be added to get a score. The goal, besides covering all the numbers, is to score the lowest. The trick is to cover all the high-numbered tiles first. The second player then takes turn and does the same. The game goes on until all the players get their turn and the one who scored the lowest wins the prize. If a player covers all the numbers, the player wins the game automatically and the prize doubles.
Shut the box stimulates your mathematical skills and strategies. Shut the box is an exciting game. You do not need to have a “stake” to play. It is a fun game and everyone will definitely enjoy.
