Thanks for all the ideas, everybody. I ended up buying a roughing stick. I'm still intrigued by the idea of children's crayons, though. I read somewhere that white ones won't show up regardless of the design on the cards, front or back. If I try it I'll let you know how it compares with the roughing stick. Endersgame, have you tried crayons?

I haven't personally, I just read about it somewhere. Trying a white crayon sounds like the most obvious choice to try, agreed.

Do report back if you give it a shot.

I've done white crayon. It worked well, but didn't last very long before the cards started slipping. It may vary by the brand of crayon, though.

Crayon works... but doesn't last very long. Alan Rorrison described how to use a crayon as a roughing stick on one of his At The Table lectures... And it totally does work. But picking up an actual roughing stick will work even better.
