The game templates I used for these are fantastic! I would recommend picking up the markers as well. I didn’t because I have tons of markers but discovered the tips of most of them wouldn’t fit through the tiny slots of the Last Man template. I suppose you could use a pencil first, remove the template and go over it with a permanent marker –just an added step. I made my game box using Bloodwood and a cool piece of Bird Peck Figured Oregon Myrtle. I added short rails to hold marbles for the Tic Tac Toe game and dispenser holes for Last Man. As you jump over and remove marbles in Last Man, it made sense to be able to pop the marbles back into the box, instead of trying to hold them or chase them down after getting scattered across the table. The lid is reversible so it’s a dual marble game and there’s plenty of space to store a small marble collection as well. I used my drill press and it was much easier than a hand drill. You just have to be careful when using a template: be patient, precise and keep the drill speed to a minimum.
"I live in NJ, and wish there was a physical store near where I live. My experience with rockler.com is second to none. Not only are your products first rate, but customer service/product support is exceptional. I've called several times, and never received someone on the other end of the phone who was anything but extremely helpful, patient, and friendly. The biggest compliment I can give is that I TRUST Rockler for all my woodworking needs. The only other store I can say that about is LL Bean. My wood working friends in western NJ love Rockler. Keep on keepin' on - and get a store here in Jersey!!" -
