About Old Century Shut The Box

Old Century Shut-the-Box, produced by Old Century Classics, is an authentic parlor game which was once played as an amusement in the pubs of Great Britain. This centuries-old game is remodeled in an authentic box with ornately engraved tile pieces. The object is to match tiles to your dice throws. If you match all the tiles, you win and get to 'shut the box.'This game is great for teaching probabilities, and you can't help but quickly improve over time. Old Century Shut-the-Box won both the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award and the Toy Portfolio Gold Award in 2003. The handsome wooden set is constructed to withstand abuse, and it packs away neatly.
