Tournament decks require 60 cards, correct? FFG's art sleeves only come 50 to a pack. Is there something I'm missing, or is this just a blatant grab for money from FFG? I realize that they aren't THAT expensive, but having to buy 100 sleeves for a 60 card deck is a bit extreme.

50 sleeves in a pack is pretty much a standard size pack, regardless of the manufacturer. Even my beloved Dragon Shields, which are either 50 or 100 count.

Edit:

You will split sleeves over time any way, so at least you'll have some replacements.

Not all of the LCG's require a 60 card deck. AGoT might be the only one.

You'll likely want an additional 7 for your plot deck as well, so there's 67 of the 100 you'll buy used.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Are the sleeves easy to switch cards in and out of? I will probably end up buying 2 packs for every house eventually, but I'm not prepared to spend that much ATM. If I buy enough for two houses in the short term I'd like to be able to reuse them for different decks.

I use FF sleeves, as well as Dragon Shields. I deck build regularly and I never have any issues.

I wasn't aware that they made 100 sleeve packs. Also, I did a search on AGOTCards and couldn't find an agenda by that name. If you're making a joke, I'm not clever or knowledgeable enough about the game to understand it.

FFG don't make 100 packs but there are other manufacturers that do. The agenda is called The Long Voyage which makes your deck size an 85 minimum and when sleeved it's a bitch to fit into an Ultra Pro deckbox.

I feel your pain. I too had to order 2 packs of 50 sleeves each, just for my favourite House for now. I made my peace with it by realizing that yes, sleeves will need to be replaced, so 40 of them will be on standby

It also helps that an AGoT deck is like 68 or 69 cards usually. So it's not like you could even buy a 60 sleeve pack and have enough.

60 card deck
7 plot card deck
1 house card
1 - 3 agendas

Then there's TLV, haha.
