      Comments about Duluth Trading Wooden game - Shut the Box:

      We got this for a game to have up at our cabin that was non-tech! Our Grandsons 6 and 9 loved it, then took 1 to visit 5 year old Grandaughter she loved it and actually took it to school as they were learning about breaking down numbers. It was a big hit! Bought 2 more for the motor home and the house.

        This easy-to-learn game is great fun for sharpening kids' elementary math skills, especially addition, subtraction, and sets. Game is very sturdy and well-built.

            I volunteer for a group who take disabled people fishing and hunting. We have an annual banquet to support our expenses. This game will be used in the pre-dinner time for our crowd to enjoy, interact and premote competition with each other. Always looking for new games to give people a way to have fun and donate. Made of quality and should hold up to years of use. Thanks Duluth Trading Co.!

              Our 10- and 6-yo nieces spent Thanksgiving week with us at our (very small) mountain cabin. We knew we'd need things to keep their attention and when I saw this in the catalog I immediately ordered it. Never heard of the game before but love it! Quick and easy to play it's best feature is the learning opportunity for the kids.

              Comments about Duluth Trading Wooden game - Shut the Box:

              Bought Shut the Box because it intrigued me but without instructions I did not know how the game was played. I saw the game during my recent visit to Colonial Williamsburg, and finally learned the rules of the game: Roll the dice (example a 6) Since the goal of the game is to have the lowest score, you would choose to clip down as many numbers possible that add up to the number 6. (1+5, or 6, or 2+4 etc) The lowest tally from the group of participants wins.

              The game is well made and fun for parents and kids as it does get one to think about possibilities.

                Comments about Duluth Trading Wooden game - Shut the Box:

                This game is a really nice quality that I am sure will last a long time. I find it fun and it is a great game to play at family gatherings when people are in perhaps a circle. You can pass the game around and everyone plays on their lap so you don't need to find a large table to play, plus as many can play as you want. When my grandchildren are older it will be a good game for them to practice their math skills. Great game.
