Will YOU close the box?


CloseTheBox is a realistic Shut the box game. It's a casual board game where you need to shut all the tiles with two dices.
As simple as that.

Top 10 in the Board/Dice games category in many countries.

"Best game to play in the bathroom" -Thomas D


- Almost a realistic design.
- Sound effects.
- Help mode. (or the "Don't think, just keep trying" mode. For the lazy minds).
- Français/English, more languages to come soon!
- It took me 134 times before I (without any cheat), closed it.


The rules of the classic game are quite simple.
You have in your possession two dices and a wooden box (let's pretend that it is!).
Your goal is to roll the dices to 'shut', or 'close' the box.
To do that, you need to roll the dices, and the total sum of the two will make a total that you can equalize by closing two of the shutters.
For example, if you have 8 in total, you can close 7+1, 6+2, 5+3, 5+2+1
Once a slider is shut, it stays shut for the whole game.
Many variants were invented to that game later on (coming in the next updates).
The game continues until all of the sliders are shut or until an impossible roll occurs.
If the player manages to close the box (the probability is pretty low), he has the privilege to write on the 'Box of Fame'.

Good luck!

Change your move

The game should allow you to change your mind each round if you want
If I roll say 7 and flip 5&2, but before I roll again I decide I want to change my selection to a 4&3, or 6&1.
Right now if you try this it resets to a new game.

Great quick game to play

What a great game to play when you have a few minutes to while away. I love the dice sound when you roll.

Paid version?

I WANT to pay and delete the ads. Please. I don’t even look at them. Waste of a good game.

Developer Response ,

We updated the app to not display ads during the game, only between lost games (not everytime). Hope that helps!
