HOW TO PLAY SHUT THE BOX - Variation A

How to Play Shut The Box!

1) Players register to play.
2) 1 player is called down to play.  Please walk to a die.
3) 1st Player rolls both dice.
4) Add up the rolls of both dice = the number you must use to close the boxes.  You may only close OPEN boxes of course.

Example: You roll a 3 and a 4 = 7. 

You then must close boxes equal to your roll(s).

Your options would be to close box 7 or boxes 3 and 4 (same as your dice rolls).

5) You MUST announce OUT LOUD what your choice of boxes are and then close them one at a time.


ROLL THE DICE AGAIN - repeat above UNTIL you are STUCK = you can NOT close any more boxes.

If you can NOT close the required total, you gain points equal to the TOTAL (Sum) of the numbers on the open boxes.
If you can close even 1 box, you keep going!


IF you roll a 6 & 6 =12, you have rolled DAMN DOUBLES!

     IF 6 is an open box, you are fine, close it and continue.

     IF 6 is a CLOSED box, you are STUCK!


IF you get STUCK... 

     The #'s of the remaining OPEN boxes are added together for your score.

     Remember, the lowest scores win prizes!


NOTE: WHEN your turn is over, please OPEN all the Closed Boxes, and reset the dice.
