Removing a dot from a Carcassonne tile made by a marker
« on: June 03, 2018, 09:16:37 AM »
Hey,

I was wondering if there is a way to remove a single dot made by a marker on the back side of a Carcassonne tile without ruining it? Thank you!

I know this doesn't exactly answer your question but Cundco has a spare parts service (https://cundco.de/en/spare-parts/13/tiles) that you could order a replacement tile from if you aren't able to get the dot off.

I know it's possible to remove permanent marker from walls, antiques, etc. using a hot rag, but I'm pretty sure that would ruin a cardboard tile. So I'll second the suggestion to check out the replacement tile service. Shipping for me in the U.S. is usually 3.95 Euro, and you may want to buy a couple of other small expansions or accessories while you're at it.

My guess is that this will also dissolve the ink on the tile

Why not add a similar ink dot to the other 71 tiles?
