ORIGIN: UK Tomy Pocket Game


GAMEPLAY: Uses a similar mechanism to Derby Day to play a game often known as Shut The Box. You spin the wheel, which has two independent arrows on it, stopping it on two different numbers (ranged from 1 to 6, plus two "Free" slots). You get seven turns to close all nine numbered boxes, either by spinning the appropriate numbers individually or by combining the two arrows to make higher numbers. The combination of luck and strategy makes it oddly compulsive.
