Shut the BoxShut the Box
Shut the Box
Two dice and nine numbered flaps make up this clever game of skill and fortune. Each player takes it in turn to throw the dice. Each time the dice is thrown the player may close one or more flaps with a total 'value' that matches the combined value of the two dice. For example if a player throws a five and a four, they could close either just the flap marked '9', or both the '5' and '4' or '6' and '3' or '2', '3' and '4' or any other combination. If you cannot close a flap or flaps to the value of the dice, the turn passes to your opponent. The object is to finish your turn, leaving as few flaps open as possible. A small wager often adds fun to the result! Instructions included.

Pass the Bomb
Pass the Bomb
For about thirty nail biting minutes, players nerves are tested to the limit by the threat of the ticking bomb. In turn players must shout out a word that contains the letters on the card and pass the bomb before it 'explodes'.The game starts when one of the cards is turned over and reveals between two and four letters. The die is rolled to determine whether the letters that are on the card has to be at the beginning or end of the word, or no restriction (meaning they can appear anywhere in the word).Even those who boast the largest vocabularies suddenly find their minds go completely blank as the bomb ticks away. For example, if the letters on the card are KE then the word might be keep or spike. Once the player has stated a word, they pass the bomb to the left to the next player. The timer on the bomb is variable and will 'explode' somewhere over ten seconds but less than 60 seconds. The player holding the bomb when it explodes has to keep the card for that round,...

DominoesDominoes
Dominoes
Ridley's Games Room brings together a collection of six classic games featuring striking geometric patterns in vivid colours that 'dance upon the eye' with a hypnotic effect. Upon closer inspection the mid-century inspired patterns can be seen to relate back to their respective games, for instance the triangles of the backgammon box mimic the games iconic board design and likewise the squares of the chess board can be seen in its 3 dimensional cube pattern. The use of rolled textures on the boxes and boards adds a wonderful tactile touch, contrasted by the smooth glossy labels along with a pop of gold foil to add a seal of quality. This is packaging that's designed to encourage a "collect-the-set" mentality and beautiful enough to display on the shelf of any home rather than be hidden away in a cupboard, forgotten and out-of-sight. Perfect to for holiday homes, motor homes, boutique hotels and yachts alike! Nothings black and white when it comes to Ridley's Games...
