A game built into a box with a lid, where the object is to get all the tiles (1-9) down by rolling two dye and putting down any combination of tiles that equal the total of the two numbers rolled. You keep rolling until you can no longer put any tiles down. If you do not get all of the tiles down in your turn it is the next players turn. You keep playing until one player gets all of the tiles down and then you can shut the box and the game ends. When the box is opened in a room or generally confined space then everyone who was in said space has to participate in a game of shut the box. YOU CANNOT SHUT THE BOX PREMATURELY! This has been know to make the Devil
jump out of the box and eat all or some of the faces of the players and/or their family s. YOU CANNOT LEAVE THE ROOM WHILE THE GAME IS IN PLAY. This can cause all player's minor discomfort and itchiness in the middle of their backs (that part that you cannot reach no matter how hard you try)and/or death via blender trauma to the head. You can be give special permission to leave the room temporarily to poop
if you end up with score for that round as a 1 or a 69. PLEASE do not open the box outdoors as it is required that everyone within 3 miles to play the game and those can be very long games if you live in a city...
Also it is completely acceptable to play shut the box in Denny's at 4Am as it is no longer a black convention and the stoners have gone back from whence they came for the night... or at least until 4:20 pm.
