A light finish is applied over the natural wood for an ultra smooth surface and billiard felt lines the playing surface for softer dice rolls. It features 12 number tiles rather than the typical 9 numbers of other versions, bringing more numerical combinations into play. Can be played with any number of players. Also included is a brief history of the game and instructions. The timeless style and beauty of this classic game will be enjoyed for generations and will add character and style to any room in which it is placed. Roll the dice and lay down any numerical combination of tiles that match your roll. Just keep on rolling until you can no longer match your roll on the remaining tiles. The lowest score wins the game. If you lay down all the tiles, then you've "shut the box." Shut the Box is a traditional game of counting, addition, and probability that is a betting game played in pubs all over Europe.
