Details

After their sails were still for the night, Norman mariners would get out their dice and play Shut-the-Box. The simple and addictive game made its way around the world as trade increased among Europe, Africa, and China, and it remains especially popular in the U.K. today. Roll the dice and lay down any combination of tiles to match your roll. Keep rolling until you can't match your roll on the remaining tiles. Low score wins; lay down all the tiles and you've shut the box. Easy to learn and hard to stop playing, this handsome antiqued edition features an Old World look, wooden box, and wooden dice and tiles. An easy-to-learn, hard-to-quit game for the whole family.

"Disappointed"

I have truly enjoyed every Novica product I have received until this one. Let me explain. I love the game, but I was thrown aback when I saw the label said, “Made in China.” It was my impression that Novica sold orginal crafts— not mass produced items from China. The web site said there was a backorder, and if I went ahead and ordered, it would encourage those who make these. I m feeling deceived.

"Excellent product & purchase!"

Excellent product & workmanship! So popular, it was originally out of stock before Xmas. Finally was able to order after the holidays for my adult sons birthday. His whole family LOVES this game---parents, teen-aged kids, & 6yr old. All can play alone, or as a family...even while traveling! I am so pleased & have bought several other things from this company. Very well trusted & will definitely buy again.

"Cool game"

All inclusive time killer. No cards to keep track of and everything gets packed away together in one small box. Great!

"Book on Lost Cultures"

This book is very informative and alot thicker than I thoought it would be. I am excited to start reading and getting more informed on lost cities and cultures that were far more advanced and democratic than we perhaps knew.

"Gift for my husband"

I got this as a gift for my husband. He doesnt want to travel overseas so we will be exploring our country instead. This has so many great ideas of what to see in America. Once we are past winter, we will be planning a few magical mystery tours.

"Regret being taken in by the reviews."

I purchased this as a Christmas present because it had good reviews on quality, appearance, and sound. I tend to disagree on all levels. This was sent in pieces in a cheap zip lock baggie. The brass piece not only did not fit smoothly to screw into the base, but it was bent/warped as well. The sound quality is very poor almost no resonation at all. This was for a Christmas gift - but I am so disappointed int he quality, I dont think I will be giving it.
