No other app gives you all game styles. No other app gives you Roll Stop control.

There is a reason we are #1 in the world, don't waste your time and money on the imitators!

It's not known for sure where Shut the Box originated. Most theories point to a source in Northern France. It appears that it has been played in this region for at least two hundred years. At the start of the game all tiles are uncovered. Two dice are rolled and the corresponding tile or tiles are covered. The game ends if no tile could be covered on a throw of the dice. The final score is the sum of the numbers remaining uncovered at the end. The lowest score wins. Cover all tiles and you shut the box.

Shut the Box Thai style, always roll two dice, but only cover one tile matching one of the dice or their sum. For example, if the dice show a 2 and a 3 you may cover one of 2, 3 and 5.

Hint: you can also shake your iPhone or iPod Touch to roll instead of using the Roll Dice button.

Tip: use coins to redo any roll! (At least 10 game coins required)

Optimized for iOS9!

What's New in Version 16.0
