This game seems to be about 200 years old and was first popular along the French coast with Fishermen and sailors. We don't make these ourselves, but in response to frequent requests we've started carrying them. Roll the dice and lay down any numerical combination of tiles that match your roll. Just keep on rolling until you can no longer match your roll on the remaining tiles. The lowest score wins the game. If you lay down all the tiles, then you’ve "shut the box".
It can be played with any number of players, taking turns, but the 4-sided board makes it ideal for 2-4 players. It can even be a solitaire game. Includes eight dice.
