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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

"Feel the Energy"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I wear this with another cuff in copper and they compliment each other--energy-wise and color and shading. While I do not read Tibetan, I still feel its power as I gently follow the engravings with my finger. Beautiful craftsmanship. Ill buy more from this artist.

"Gorgeous and artistic!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I needed a perfect gift for my beloved daughter-in-laws graduation and this magnificent necklace was absolutely the right choice. I looked at many websites searching for a piece of Roman glass set in a necklace - and this was by far the best piece of this type of the many I looked at. Not only that - it was less expensive than other Roman glass jewelry offerings.

Best Uses

  • Wearing with scooped necklines
