Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst product I have ever seen from Melissa and Doug First, let me say that I love simple, classic, time-tested games. Shut-the-Box is a wonderful old pub game that combines strategy with an element of chance, and it's even a fun way to pass a few minutes without competing against another player. With kids in the house, we have had numerous well-made Melissa and Doug items. This was by far the most expensive and absolutely the poorest made item I have ever purchased from them, or from JC Penney. The very thin plastic in the lid was severely scratched, the lid did not fit the bottom of the box, being a very noticeable fraction of an inch skewed to the left. The paint job was horrible, with parts looking like my 6-year old had been after it. JC Penney should be ashamed to offer merchandise of this poor quality. I will be returning this as quickly as possible, but I'm afraid that a replacement may be as poorly crafted as this one. Save yourself the trouble and the money, and look for a better selection for this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I've played this game for years at my sister's house, and even thought about making one. Then I spotted this one on the JCP site, I bought one for me and one for a gift. :)
