Games to Go by Mollydag Made - Shut The Box
This is a simple and addictive game for those just starting to learn their numbers right through to the oldies trying to keep the grey-matter moving!
Roll the dice and try to turn over, or 'shut out' any combination of numbers that total your roll. Keep rolling until you can't match your roll with the remaining disks. If you turn them all over, you have SHUT THE BOX!
For the youngest players, this game teaches number recognition. As their mathematics skills improve, you can play by addition, subtraction and in advanced play, multiplication.
For ages 6+
