Things I learned while making this project.
1. stock dowel doesn't have much visual appeal so I will turn the round pieces from some type of interesting wood like I did with the large set.
2. the thin door skin is chippy. Next time I will use quality plywood for the playing surface. I may even use a thin slice of solid wood for next time.
3. wood burning the markings onto the game board is the best permanent marking system.
There will be a next time, sometime. I like the concept and really like the game. Next time I will make the project from dedicated materials rather than left overs.
