Noisy Games on Shabbos

Is it permitted for children to play with a dice that is enclosed in a plastic dome. Squeezing the lever causes the dice to make a loud clanking sound. Would this be permitted on Shabbos?

Answer:

Yes, this would be permitted. The rabbinic prohibition against loud, noise making devices only includes very loud devices that also have continuous noise. Sounds from various board games are generally not very loud or continuous and pose no prohibition.
