Shut The Box

Ahoy!

An old favorite of sailors and pub-goers, this game is just as much fun today as it was during the age of cannons and peg legs, especially since this version includes space and two foam inserts to securely hold a bottle of wine, which makes it perfect for gift giving. Players compete to be the first to shut the box by rolling the right combination of numbers with the included wooden dice. The game comes in an antique-styled wood chest with a metal handle and clasp. Made in China.

Wine bottle not included.

Nice presentation for a bottle of liquor

By

Comments about shut the box:

The game box has a nice, aged look to it. To add your wine/liquor you have to take the game out of the cardboard packaging it comes in, so be aware you'll have to open the box up. There is a chain that holds the box lid open & mine kinked easily. When this happends, the lid will not open fully. Also, the product doesn't fit a standard size wine bottle. I tried 2 shorter liquor bottles & neither fit with the inserts that came with it so I used chocolate candy coins & fake gems as filler around one of the bottles & ditched the inserts. The final presentation looked pretty awesome (& pirate-y)! I am very impressed with how it fun the package looks altogether. No word from the recipients yet if the game is any fun, though. Finding all the components (candy coins, a bottle that fits)was time intensive & ended up costing more that I originally thought for the gift, so I am not sure I would recommend it to everyone.

    Great gift for those who "have everything" Fun and interesting game, good quality wood, can be left out on book shelf or table. Only certain lenght wine bottles will fit though, the foam inserts are too large and only squat bottles will fit inside.

          I bought this for my husband for his birthday and we love it! It's fun, entertaining, and good for all ages. The box is big enough to hold a bottle of wine or liquor to sip (or gulp) while you play! It's a good "drinking game" or kid's game...

            It looked really neat how the bottle wine fits in the box. Well, that wasn't the case. The Holders they give you do not fit in the box and even if they did you would need a really short bottle of wine to make it work. That's my only disappointment about this purchase, however it was one of the main reasons I bought it.

              This gift is perfect for a history and/or naval buff. I think the only thing that could make it better would be to have the option of adding in the wine or port. That way when a person sends it as a gift, they could also send the bottle along with it. I think it should only be an option though as some people are are very picky about their wines and may not be interested in the extra costs. Overall though, a grown-up family drinking game - what could be better?
