Another forward
Everyone has pretty much covered it.  The game is "Shut the Box".
Milton Bradley produced a clone called "Snake Eyes" with a picture 
of a snake under the numbers.  It's in "Medieval Games".  It's a 
century post-period, but it's still played at SCA events.

Two corrections to what I've read.  If you roll a 1 and 5, you can cover
the 1 and 5 or the 6.  Period.  The 2 and 4 is only allowed in children's
games locally.  You want to cover the 7,8,9 as fast as possible.  Once
they're gone you have the option of going to a single die.  Take it!
