I am new to woodworking, and have started making marble game boards.  I was using dremel and a bit, to drill the marble holes, but have ended up burning my dremel tool up.  I was wondering if anyone could offer some advise on router bit size and type for a 5/8 inch, 1/4 inch deep circle.

Several factors are missing in your post.  What kind of wood are you using?  What speed are you using and which drill bit?  I would suggest that you drill the holes with a regular high speed drill with a depth limiter on it, then finish the edges of the 5/8 inch hole with your Dremel.  If there are several holes, use a drill press.  Burning out something, to me, sounds like too high a speed was used.

If you experience burning on your material or bits, ease up on the speed.
