How to Play "Shut the Box"

About: I like to build stuff.

"Shut The Box" Is a fun old classic board game that can be played with as many people as you would like. The best part is that you can play it by your self. Kind of like the card game "Solitare". You can also play for money and that's why it can be for more than one people.

Step 1: Playing the Game.

Now when you roll your dice, whatever the amount is on both the dices added together is what you can put down. Now in this photo, I have a 5 and a 4 an together that equals 9. I can put any of the numbers down that equal 9. I could put down an 8 and a 1, a 7 and a 2, a 6 and a 3, 5 and a 4, or just 9. Now keep in mind that you want the highest numbers out first. If I got a 6 together from both dices and I put down 1,2,3 and say 5 was already down and I rolled 5 again, I would be out.

    Mmm, I guess this game could be played with cards too... Just turn them over when rolled.
