Awesome when used on Chessex Megamats! May 23, 2010
By Kithias Darkleaf
Just adding that these markers are perfect for use on Chessex Megamats (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0015IUAAG/) if you're a Dungeon Master and want a great way to map out where your players are exploring prior to the adventure. I've even used them to make small additions or corrections during a game, and if everyone was patient enough you could draw out a dungeon real time.
The different colors are helpful if you want to designate static objects, and the points are sharp enough to get very good detail, yet with a simple turn you can draw thick/strong enough lines for the walls of rooms. The brown is dark enough and close to the black so that you can use it for dungeon walls (if the other runs out).

Just fine Jan 28, 2009
They work fine on Chessex battlemats for mapping D&D encounters. The extra colors are great for fire terrain, foliage, wooden wagons, etc. Recommended over the four-pack.

Won't smear... Mar 11, 2012
I bought these markers to use on my dry erase calender that is on my fridge at home. I love how they don't smear, so I can fill in the numbers of the month and then later on add things on it and my palm won't smear the marker. To erase the marker you definitely need a wet paper cloth and then it comes off easily.
The only downside I found was that they are VERY fine point tips. The write very thin and lightly so it was a bit difficult to read from a distance.
Other than that they are great!

Best for "wipe-off" school work May 28, 2003
By Shawnon Glimpse
This product is great. The colors are nice and strong, the points are just the right size, and they just DO NOT SMELL. Also, since they are wet-erase, they are easy to use to do a whole sheet (or many) and not worry about accidentally erasing the whole shooting match. The marks that are made wait patiently for you to decide when to remove them, and they are easy to remove. A truly understated product. Try them and you'll see the difference from smelly dry erase markers, completely!

Nice for Chessex Mats - But Wipe Them Off Quickly Oct 05, 2011
By Stephen Mann
As others have said these are very nice for use on Chessex battle mats (eg Chessex Role Playing Play Mat: MEGAMAT Double-Sided Reversible Mat for RPGs and Miniature Figure Games - 34 1/2in x 48in
), and that is what I bought mine for.
Some words to the wise, though.
The yellow does not show very well against the buff colored mat, the red seems to not dry as quickly as the other colors (but is a better, brighter red than the Staedtler red), and the blue will leave a permanent stain if left on the mat for longer than a week.
Also, I found the pen caps sometimes won't park on the ends of the pens while I write/draw with them. Not sure why this is true of some colors and not others.
That said, I use these pens in preference to the Staedtler ones recommended by Chessex. The colors seem brighter.
[EDIT] I dimwittedly left the cap off my black marker for over an hour recently and it dried up completely. Replacing the cap for a few hours brought the pen back to life, as good as new as far as I could tell. Obviously not recommended behavior, but don't toss that pen you left open before you've left it overnight to recover![/EDIT]
