This is the open "dice-tray"-style of this classic game.
After the sails were still and the nets had been reeled in and repaired, the Norman sailors and fishermen would pull out their dice and play Shut-The-Box. Authentic wood tiles and dice give this game its old century charm. Roll the dice and lay down any combination of tiles that match your roll. Keep rolling until you can't match your roll on the remaining tiles. Low score wins; lay down all the tiles and you've “shut the box.”
