Are those actual crayons or dowels with crayon labels. My kids break crayons in 5 minutes.

They are actual crayons, dowels work too, but the thought of making 100+ dowel barrels was too intimidating.
The dice were bought blank and engraved with a 1/8” round nose router bit. The symbols are X is a hit to the ship, O is a miss and lll is a hit to the turret. An additional die not shown has colored sides to tell which turret is hit. You get to roll 1 die for each turret you have with at least one barrel. Each hit on a turret you remove a crayon. Each hit on ship you remove a peg. Run out of pegs and you sink.

I think it’s cool too. (I realize now my crayon comment might have come across as negative. ) I’m sure my kids would love it.
