Thats a hell of a job with a plunge router, do you not have a drill press?

Plus one for the drill press. Getting the router bit centered in just the right spot so many times seems a daunting task. Chuck up a ball-nose bit in your drill press and run it at top speed.

If you are going to do this with a router, make a template on the drill press and then use a bushing on the router to cut the board.
If you are doing only one ,just use the drill press with the router bit. You might want to dimple the hole first with a small drill bit to act like a pilot to keep the ball bit from wandering on the drill press. Also putting the drill press on highest speed with the router bit.

I was going to make a Chinese checker board once, but found that the post on my drill press would not allow me to reach far enough. I would have to make a template and use a plunge router with a guide bushing to accomplish it. I never made it sorry to say.

Check Rockler.com. They sell a package of 60 marbles for Chinese Checkers and a router bit specifically to accommodate them.

I have a triton m0f001 what sort of bush would I get for this to achieve what I'm looking to do. I'm completely new to routers and the techniques involved to do different things.
