What is ShutterBox?
ShutterBox is a game of chance that was inspired by games played by sailors and pirates hundreds of years ago. The game board consists of a pair of dice and two rows of tiles numbered one through nine.

The idea of the game is simple.... Roll the dice and flip down tiles on the game board that add up to the sum of the dice. Sounds easy, right?

Don't be fooled by the simplicity of ShutterBox--Flipping down all of the tiles is an elusive feat.... You will find yourself addicted to ShutterBox as you keep seeking the perfect game!

These are the game tiles. Flip tiles down to add up to the sum of the dice. A tile in the back row can't be flipped down until the tile in front of it is flipped.

Here is the scoreboard. Your score is the sum of the numbers on the tiles you have flipped down during the game.

Rules of ShutterBox
  • To begin the game, double tap on the dice to roll (you can tap either of the dice).
  • Tap tiles on the game board to flip them down. If you want to flip a tile back up, just tap it again.
  • Flip down enough tiles to add up to the sum of the dice. Use as many tiles as you need, and in any combination. For example, if you roll a 5, you can use any of the following tile combinations:
Flip down just the 5 tile
Flip down the 4 and 1 tiles
Flip down the 3 and 2 tiles
Flip down the 3, 1 and 1 tiles
Flip down the 2, 2, and 1 tiles
  • When you have flipped down enough tiles, double tap the dice to roll again. This will also "lock" any tiles that you flipped down.
  • Continue rolling the dice and flipping down tiles until you flip down all of the tiles (and WIN!) or until there are no more combinations of tiles that will add up to the sum of the dice.
  • Your score is calculated by adding up the numbers on the tiles you were able to turn down during the game.

Hints

  • A tile in the back row will not move until the tile in front of it has been flipped down.
  • After you roll the dice, they will turn a darker color. When you have flipped down enough tiles, the dice will turn bright again, indicating that you may roll.
  • After you roll, any tiles you have flipped down will become locked in position. Any tiles that are locked down will also be a darker color to distinguish them from tiles that you can still flip up or down.
  • ShutterBox will alert you that the game is over when there are no more combinations of tiles that add up to the sum of the dice.
