I used Ultra Pro deck protector sleeves 66mm x 91mm. Ultra pro stock #82689 for a pack of 100. These are the premium sleeves with the hologram on them and they fit the cards perfectly.

When following any suggestion always remember - Caveat emptor

The song from Different Strokes has some sage advice: "What might be right for you, may not be right for some." I'm always a little loathe to suggest things that work for me, as on occasions they didn't work out for the other guy.

Pat, do you sleeve all games?

If not, you may want to wait. These are extremely thick cards that don't get handled very much.

That is definitely true David. What two people call a "perfect fit" can be two different things. There is lots of disagreement on sleeve sizes, let alone whether to sleeve or not!

I find the quote irrelevant as the o.p, was wanting suggestions for some sleeves not a philosophical debate.

That is the danger of posting to a PUBLIC forum. Reagan got the suggestion as he wanted. The rest of the posters discussed the pro and cons of making and receiving suggestions.

And if you hadn't read any of the other main sleeving geeklists/threads on BGG there have been at least one instance where someone took suggestions for sleeves a game and that they had seen, they didn't fit and they came on to the board quite up set, even though the link they followed had nothing to do with those threads. Incidentally although Mayday sleeve were involved but the buyer bought sleeves for the wrong edition.

I doubt suggesting that the buyer exercises caution and thoroughly researches the suggested link is irrelevant especially where Mayday is concerned. No one wants to waste money on wrong sleeves.

ADDITION:
Thomas, no criticism of your suggestion was intend. Just urging sensible caution when sleeving due to the odd size variations. My sleeves of choice are Ultrapro standards. Double thick, double safe mile high stacks.

EDITS: for speeling and poor grandma.

I own Fortune and Glory and the link is to the sleeves I purchased that fit perfectly. They are not too tight nor do they have to much overhang. If they don't work I'd gladly buy them from you.

I received the game with some messed top left corners on the danger cards, that why I wanted sleeves, I don't want to send the game back either, too much of a hassle. I looked to see if I could just buy adventure cards, but just found the supplemental ones on flying frog. So I ordeed them

Messed up how? All my FFP games have some sort of weird crack in the corners one way or another. I've learned to accept it, they haven't seperated at all thank goodness.

Haha, too funny.

Just don't riffle shuffle them, they are too thick. I stack shuffle them until I get them all in sleeves. Because they are so thick the mayday regular sleeves are perfect.

I tried generic sleeves "Perfect Fit" by Max Protection 64.7 by 89.5 and they were snug for Fortune and Glory but was happy with the result, some of the promo cards were a hair higher and wider making them tight. The same sleeves would not fit A Touch Of Evil at all, they stuck out more than I cared for. They fit Last Night On Earth, Conquest of Planet Earth and Phantom Leader Deluxe well (Flush to the top) Level 7 Escape and BioShock fit perfectly (Just under sleeve edge) along with some other games I had by GMT Urban Sprawl, Labyrinth: TWoT, Navajo Wars. They did not fit The Halls of Montezuma, Fields of Fire or Cuba Libre at all. I ordered some packs from May Day (Orange, Purple, Green and Red codes) for Talisman, Shadows over Camelot, Ticket To Ride Europe, Arkham, Runebound and A touch Of Evil to see how they fit. The perfect Fits were $1.99 for 100 on Ebay. You'll have to see what suits your taste for each game. I never really thought about sleeving before, one thing I noticed is they can make the stacks a lot taller and you have to be really careful when grabbing a card as these things can shoot across the room if you put too much pressure on the stack or could easily topple over from the added height and subtle vibrations. Anyone else have those problems?
