Hi,

I would like to sleeve the cards included in the game.

It seems that the 70x70 sleeves from Mayday are the right ones. But they don't produce them in the premium quality. So I'm thinking about using the ones from Ultra Pro. But they measure only 69x69.

So I would like to know if I can use the sleeves for Mayday and if someone uses the sleeves from Ultra Pro and can tell me if they fit (even if they are 1mm shorter then the sleeves from Mayday)?

I have not tried the Ultra Pro, but I can confirm that they do fit perfectly in the Fantasy Flight Supply 70 x 70 sleeves. Those are my preferred square sleeves. I just ordered 100 of those (along with a set of Fantasy Flight tarot card sleeves that I will cut down to sleeve the starting baselands).

I sleeved the game with the cards from "Among the stars". Can be bought in the Artipia Games shop. They fit perfectly...but it`s also not the "premium quality"....but since the material of the game is not too thin -in my point of view- they`re perfect for me.

Seems that Mario has not that 'problem' because he used some thin sleeves but it would be really nice if Ben would tell us a little bit about playing with the premium sleeves.

I have played five games with the fantasy flight sleeves and they have worked well...not too thick at all.

Thanks, Larry. I didn't play a full game with them because I didn't have enough sleeves around to do them all. But I tried patching 3 tiles together and I thought it worked very well (it was actually easier to patch under with the sleeves).
