Would it be possible to add "Usable card sleeves" to the game descriptions.

Most users of valuable games with cards use sleeves for protection. Most of the games that are not so common, or not FFG games have forum threads asking for sleeve sizes. Some games include long debates about possibilities. and users looking for proper sleeves can hardly find answers.

Therefore I think it would be a useful addition to include "Usable card sleeves" to game description, so that users can add their choice of sleeves to the game.

Not sure that's the right place for something that's a general accessory.

The More Information section seems more appropriate and is a user-maintained wiki. Any BGG member can edit the wiki and enter the info there. IIRC, some games do have sleeves listed.

As an aside, there's a good, ever-expanding geeklist that lists games and the card sleeves that fit them:

Card Sleeve Sizes for Games - A (not yet) comprehensive list of games and what size their cards are

Worthy of a Quickbar slot.

You recall correctly.

You can start here http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/Card_Sleeves# & then make your way to the games that are linked. See Le Havre and London as examples.

Requested many times before. The admin response (skelebone at the time) is that it will not be added as separate fields, but can be added to the 'More Information' wiki section.
