Welcome to ShutterBox! Inspired by ancient dice games played by pirates and sailors hundreds of years ago, ShutterBox is a game of chance where you roll two dice and match up the sum of the dice with numbered tiles on the game board.

When you are stuck waiting for friends, trying to stay awake during a boring lecture or meeting, or just needing a quick break, ShutterBox is the perfect way to pass the time.

Playing ShutterBox is very simple:

Start the game by rolling the dice with a double tap on your iPhone screen.

Then tap tiles on the game board to flip them down. Flip down any combination of tiles that adds up to the sum of the dice. For example, if you roll a 5, you can do the following: flip down tiles number 2 and 3; or 4 and 1; or 2, 2 and 1; or 3, 1 and 1; or just a 5.

After you have flipped down an appropriate combination of tiles, roll the dice again. The game continues until you have flipped down all of the tiles on the game board (and WIN!) or there is no combination of tiles remaining on the board that add up to the sum of the dice. Sounds simple, right?

CAUTION: ShutterBox is highly addictive because it is extremely difficult to flip down all of the tiles. Give it a try and you will find yourself saying "Just one more game" over and over!

Reasons people buy ShutterBox:

(1) Great to fill the 5 to 10 minute gaps in your day;

(2) Helps corporate drones maintain sanity during never-ending conference calls;

(3) Fun game for kids to practice adding and counting when they inevitably "borrow" your iPhone;

(4) Everybody loves pirates, and pirates love dice games!

5/5 stars

Best of this genre

I have tried them all. Far and away the most entertaining of the "Shut The Box" style games. Great display, keeps stats and just flat out fun! Highly recommend this for people who enjoy dice style games on iPod!!!

5/5 stars

VERY Addicting game!

It is so nice to find a simple old fashioned game that can keep you entertained. Difficult to win and deceptively simple to play, shutterbox is my number one game when I go number two! I highly recommend this incredibly addicting game of strategy and chance.
