Add magnets to the back of the disks. Then, on the front, write the x's and o's (the x+o is for the person who goes first).

You can put the golf course  on top of the pool table and the pool table on top of the golf course to interchange the games.

Step 11: To store.

To store, put the pool table on the bottom and put all of the balls in the corners. Set golf course on top and place the rest of the pieces on top of the golf course. Now it should all fit in the mint tin for on-the-go pocket-sized fun!
