This single-player shut the box game is great for quick and entertaining games, utilising basic maths skills, luck and tactics, this game is sure to be hit with everyone who plays, and can even be passed around to see who does the best!
How to play:
the board has a line of numbers from 1-9 on it, the object of the game is to get as many of them ‘flipped’ as possible (ideally all of them), Here’s how to play,
All you need to do is roll a pair of 6 sided dice, after that, you can then chose to flip either the total result of the pair rolled or the sum of its parts.
For example; If I rolled the pair of dice and they landed on a 2 and a 5, I could either, flip-up the 7 (Because 5+2 is 7) or flip-up any number of tabs that total 7 (2 & 5 / 3 & 4 / 1, 2 & 4 etc.).
After this roll has been resolved, you roll again and repeat the process until the number that is rolled cannot be made using the available numbers left.
When this happens, you have been eliminated from the game!
Add up the total of the remaining un-flipped numbers (that is your score) you can then pass it to someone else to see if they can do better. (Remember: the lower the score, the better you did)
However, if you are successful in flipping up every number, then you have successfully ‘Shut the box’ and you win!
