Very disappointed in the quality of this game for several reasons. 1. No instructions were included in the game. 2. Dice were cheesy. Dots were different colors and not consistent sizes on each side. Also, the dice were mini size, not regular dice size. 3. On the box where it listed the contents, it said "2 dices". I bought these to give to families that were in need of gifts for Christmas. The last thing I wanted to do was to make them feel like they were receiving charity with the quality of the game.
Fun Family game for all ages, compact design makes it portable for camp-outs, the lake and other travel. Unlimited number of players, can be played as individuals or in teams. The nature of the game allows for variety. Have recommended it to relatives and friends.
KIDS DON'T EVEN REALIZE THAT THEY ARE LEARNING MATH, WHAT A GREAT SIMPILE GAME.
Love this game.. for all ages
I bought it as a gift for a friend at Christmas. She wanted it. It's a fun game.
It would be nice if it had a box to store it in like the picture shows, but it is fine without. Also the dice are very small so I replaced them.
I'M GOING TO BUY SOME MORE.
Excellent math practice that can be adapted to several levels. Basically a die is rolled and the corresponding wooden flap is flipped down... Or ANY COMBINATION of flaps that total the thrown number is flipped down. If there is a player who is just learning adding who wants to play with an older sibling, change the rules. The better player must use two flaps, for instance, while the beginner can use any number of flaps to add up to the die.
This game is a fun way to get basic math mastered without using paper and pencil. A ten minute game everyday makes basic facts become easy mental math.
I used it in my primary classroom for decades, literally. Now I buy it for anyone who has a child or grandchild struggling with math.
Bought this as a gift and have already spent hours playing it. Very easy to learn .I have seen better made (quality) but this one is holding up okay.
I used to play the original game when I was a kid. In 1974 it was called "BLITZ" I went hunting to find it. This is what came the closest. It's a fun game for all ages. My six year old daughter and my 80 year old father love to play. The only disappointing thing that I noticed is that it is made poorly. The tiles that you flip up and down wiggle as if they may break one day soon. They just don't make things like they used to! But the game is super fun and entertaining.
I am looking forward to playing this game with my Grandchildren. The quality was not as nice as what I hoped for, and there were no directions. But, still it is what I was looking for.
The numbers are reverse from the one I have, which I haven't ever seen before. The quality is nice. Shipping to the store was hassel free.
Good game, easy to learn and addictive! Game was delivered to store within 3 days. Only one problem, no instructions whatsoever on how to play the game. I had to go on internet to get the rules.
Great game for Family Game Night. The only thing I would recommend differently is for future games to be made a little bit more heavy duty. This one is great and looks very nice, but could easily be scratched or nicked. This wouldn't affect the game itself, just the looks of it.
Learning tool for elementary levels.
My grand daughter and I play this game. It's a good game and this product is a good value for it's price.
No frills - just a plain and simple game. I purchased 2. Had to Google for directions on how to play and added a copy of the directions,a pad of paper and pencil to the game I gave to someone.
Walmart needs to rewrite the product description. Shut the Box is not a "new" game. It was popular 200 years ago.
I was a little disapointed with the quality.
Who ever heard of a game without instructions?
Also the box was worn and looked used. Hoping it was a fluke, I re-ordered but got the same. (This review process is aggravating. too. Why the nickname? I keep getting rejected because it is a repeat.)
