My 10 year old loves this game! It's interesting and compelling to play over and over. She was weak on her math facts but this helped her learn them in a painless way. But it is not just for kids. Anyone can play it. Like solitaire, one just wants to play again and again Even more , it's compact, closes up to carry anywhere and play anywhere. (Great way to pass time on car rides.)

I never played "Shut the Box" before getting this one. I thought after reading the description of the game that it wasn't going to be much fun. I bought this solely on the positive reviews. I am pleasantly surprised! I actually love this game. I bought this for my 7 year old daughter's birthday and what an excellent education tool it has been for her addition math facts. Basically, you try to shut the box on your turn by rolling the dice, adding the numbers together, then deciding which tiles you want to shut down. You keep doing this until you roll a number that cannot be added on the tiles. Whatever is left is your total for that turn (only count numbers that are showing, not those covered on the second row). Then it's the other person's turn. Keep score. The person who reaches 100 first loses. Another way to keep score is to give the winner of the round 1 point. The first one to 5 wins. I've shut the box one time, my daughter twice... what an exciting event that is!! :)

I asked for this game for my 38th birthday--believe it or not! Every time I would take my 2 children into the local toy store I would stand and play this game which they had on display. Honestly, it is a great educational game for both my 6 and 9 year old children--you have to add up the dice and then figure out which combination of numbers is best to flip down. It really is fun and very addictive. I knew my kids would love to give it to me since they always saw me play it, and I also knew they would enjoy it and not realize they were having to do math!
