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.

More than 10 000 games were played in the first 24hours!

"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!

I dig the logical thinking aspect

I really like the thought that goes into choosing your numbers to close and attempting to leave open numbers that can have the most benefits. I’m going to buy this game after playing it in the App Store.

Ads pop up after the last roll and you don’t get to see your last roll?! Before you can deduct that there are no plays left the ads pop up. Blah.
Oh and I would happily pay a buck or 2 to have the option to remove ads. Happy to pay to remove ads. Not seeing an option for that unfortunately. Otherwise very nicely done. Could be a very zen experience if I could only pay to remove the ads.

Fun game! Now about the ads...

Always loved this game and this app is a pretty good digital emulation of playing a physical box.

Despite the developer reducing their frequency, the ads really are quite disruptive, intrusive, and irritating!

However, if you put your device in airplane mode while playing, you won’t be bothered with them. Apologies to the developer, but I hope some users find that a helpful hint.
