You should think twice before sleeving these games!

I'm a sleeve-addict. I have to sleeve every game I own. And by that I mean EVERY game. I would probably sleeve my Poker cards if I had ones. But with some games I have noticed, that after sleeving the cards it is almost impossible to stuff them back to the box. I have gathered some of those games to this list. Please add your own games to this list if you have found those hard to box after sleeve.

I believe this is true to other Dice Master Starter kits too. Thou you maybe don't need to sleeve these cards as they never are shuffled...

If you want to sleeve the cards and keep all the plastic boxes inside the big box, you will be facing a problem.

The cards just barely fit in the box as it is.... Besides, they're an odd size and I don't have sleeves to fit it anyway.

The un-sleeved cards fit perfectly in 2 stacks into the box.

With sleeves they just don't fit, but I have mine sleeved anyway. They're placed in the box as one stack, and then I have a rubber band around it.

The little box from the english version just barely fit the cards inside (and that's after splitting them into two decks).



Even with some extra thin sleeves you have to use rubber bands or something to keep the lid closed.

You would have to have OCD to sleeve these cards. They're plastic. And then they wouldn't fit in the box.

This game is notorious for having a terrible insert. The components could easily fit in a box that was 1/4th the size. The rest of the box is just a waste of space.

And then when you sleeve the cards, they don't even fit in their spot in the insert anymore. I'm planning on making a foam board insert eventually...

The un-sleeved cards barely fit in the box. Plan on some other form of storage if you plan to sleeve this deck builder.

I keep 2 decks and expansions in a large deck box.

Haven't gotten the game yet(should be here tomorrow), but I don't see how such a small box is made to hold sleeved cards. Thankfully, the publisher offers a bigger box to store everything with sleeved cards.

Such a shame, too, as the quaint little box is part of the charm.

As far as I know, this only applies to the original Oink edition. Perfect little pocket boxes that don't support sleeves.

Let's just say that most small box card games are not going to support sleeves...

I spent a long time sleeving the entire game.

Then I spent a long time un-sleeving the entire game.

I guess I could've thrown out the insert, but it holds the un-sleeved cards, and the pieces very nicely.
