I'm looking for card trays that will hold the half-sized cards like are in Candamir or Hacienda? Anyone know of a place on the web to get them?

Get them from copies of the old game Probe often found at thrift stores

Other mass market games could have them, Probe is just the one game I know of.

You can also get nifty card holders (for players' individual cards) from the game Rack-o:


Lots of good stuff to be pillaged from thrift store games!! arrrh

Damn, why didn't I think of that??? I've passed by two copies of this in the last month or so. Thanks for the idea.

Taking this advice, I stopped at a thrift store where I had seen Probe a couple of months ago...by by george, it was still there. Not only was there a draw/discard tray for the mini-cards, but there were also 4 small racks that could also be used for the same thing.
There were also three copies of "Encore" there. (I guess nobody likes that one). Inside each was a normal card size draw/discard tray, two sand timers, and a mounted board almost perfect size for mounting a couple of wargames I have that are unmounted.
Let's tally,
5 trays/racks for mini sized cards
3 trays for normal sized cards
5 sand(hourglass type) timers (a 6th one was broken)
3 well mounted game boards
some pawns and dice
Total price........$2.12

Enough stuff to improve a half dozen games.

Plus you can throw a deck of the "Encore" song cards in your car's glove compartment and play the game (sort of) on long road trips.

Just picked up another copy myself as I realized all the games I have with mini cards. Capitol can use those nice slanted two slot trays (pictured below) as a holder for the draw pile and discard pile for each type of card.

Those little racks from Probe could also clean up "Pirate's Cove".
