Shut The Box - 4 player game
---------------------------------
The game is simple: roll the dice to lay down all the numbered tiles and “shut the box,” or be the player with the lowest score.

Shut the Box (also called Blitz, Bakarat, Canoga, Klackers, Batten Down the Hatches, Kingoball, Trictrac, Cut Throat, Fork Your Neighbor, and Jackpot) is traditionally played in English pubs but has been played all around the world for centuries. Shut the Box is a great learning tool to improve math and strategy skills, while being fun and engaging at the same time. See more information below for how this game is played!

HOW TO PLAY:
--------------------
To start the game, turn the tiles up so the numbers are displayed. A round of play consists of each player taking one turn. The first player rolls the dice within the felt-lined box and lays down any combination of tiles that matches his or her roll. Any die that leaves the playing field or leans at an angle against the inside of the box, requires a re-roll.

FOR EXAMPLE: If you roll a 5 and 3, you may lay down any combination of tiles that add up to 8. You may lay down the 8 tile; the 5 and 3 tiles; the 6 and 2 tiles; the 7 and 1 tiles; the 5, 2, and 1 tiles; or the 4, 3, and 1 tiles.

Continue rolling and laying down tiles. If the remaining tiles add up to 6 or less, roll a single die. When you can no longer lay down any tiles, your turn is over. If you lay down all of the tiles, you’ve shut the box and your score is zero! Remember, lower scores are better.

SCORING EXAMPLE: If one player has the remaining tiles 1, 3, and 5, their score is 9.

For QUICK PLAY, one player rolls until they can no longer lay down any tiles. Then it’s the next player’s turn. After one round around the board, the player with the lowest score wins.

For STANDARD PLAY, one player rolls until they can no longer lay down any tiles. Each player takes turns, passing the die along until one player shuts the box. OPTIONAL PLAY: Play until a second and/or third player shuts the box.
